Maine Folk Music and Dance Video Series is showcasing the music and dance of the cultures of Maine using Zoom. Every Tuesday, spend your lunchtime from noon to 1 PM checking out an hour of performance and asking your questions with the artists.
The nonprofit Yarmouth music school 317 Main Community Music Center is presenting a new video every week that features presentations and a chat with artists that represent Maine artists, musicians and dancers through a Zoom presentation.
Register to be part of the hour-long weekly events by filling out the Contact form and choose which of the last two video sessions you'd like to be a part of.
Joining in on the Zoom presentation and Q&A is free but a donation option is available as well.
The contact form asks for your firs and last name, address, email and a one-time donation to support this and future events from 317 Maine Community Music Center, then entering in payment information.
