BELFAST – Belfast Flying Shoes presents a community dance at Steamboat Landing Park Friday, July 1, with Chrissy Fowler calling and music by the BFS All Comers Band, led by special guest musicians Ti’Acadie.

Ti’Acadie is Pam Weeks on fiddle and mountain dulcimer; Jim Joseph on accordion, banjo and percussion; and Bill Olson on guitar and bass. When this Maine trio gets going, with fiddle howling, guitar pulsing, accordion pumping, feet tapping… look out! Ti’Acadie and the open-to-all-musicians All Comers Band will inspire joyful dancing for all. Suggested tunes will be posted at belfastflyingshoes.org.

The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. with a warm up session for the All Comers Band musicians, with facilitated dancing from 7 to 9 p.m. The program will include a few couple dances like the foxtrot, polka and schottische, plus plenty of longways sets, squares and more. Dancers and musicians of all ages and experience levels are welcome.

Suggested admission is a $5 to $20 sliding scale. Masks are heartily requested when dancing, especially when dancing indoors. The rain location is the Belfast Boathouse at Steamboat Landing.
