Unity College Centre for the Performing Arts, 42 Depot St., will welcome back ultimate contra dance band Ti’ Acadie Thursday, Sept. 15 at 7:30 p.m.

Ti’ Acadie is French for “a little Acadia” and, as the band name implies, it does a lot of North American French music and likes being a link between Northern Acadian music and Southern Cajun music as often as it can be. Band members are: Pam Weeks on fiddle, mountain dulcimer, mandolin, piano, guitar, Celtic harp and vocals; Jim Joseph on button accordion, 5-string banjo, mandolin, jaw harp, feet, percussion and vocals; and Bill Olson on guitar, bass, vocals and calling. They play Quebecois, old-timey and New England dance tunes for contra dances, school events, parties, weddings; Cajun dance tunes and songs for Cajun dancing and all the previously mentioned gigs; and they sing the songs they like (mostly old time Southern but not all) in three-part harmony in addition to the above for concerts.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the door or online at unitymaine.org. Next up is Téada with Seamus Begley Thursday, Sept. 22 at 7:30 p.m. ($15). For more information call 948-7469 or visit the website.
