September 15, 2018 Music by Pam Weeks (on fiddle and foot percussion), Mitch Reed (Cajun fiddler recently moved to Maine from Louisiana) and Bill Olson (on guitar). Calling by Bill Olson. Pam and Bill (who actually run the Bowdoinham dance) have been playing together for almost 30 years. They have a vast repertoire of Quebecois, New England and old time Appalachian tunes. Mitch Reed is a world class fiddler who until recently toured with Beausoleil. The twin fiddle combination of Pam and Mitch will definitely add some spice to the evening!! Bill has been calling for 30 years, is the author of many of the dances you dance to regularly, and has a few "tricks up his sleeve" for this dance. Please come out and support the 3rd Saturday Bowdoinham dance!!
