Online via Zoom on your nearest web browser or device!

To benefit the Folk Arts Center of New England

Join Tom Pixton (accordion, vocals), Julia Poirier (guitar, vocals) and the Folk Arts Center as we present our first live music dance workshop of the socially distanced era via Zoom, the popular teleconferencing platform.

Tom and Julia have been playing for International Folk Dance for more than twenty years. In this workshop, they’ll play some of your favorite dances and provide some commentary on playing for dance. To respect social distancing, they will be in different locations in the same studio, connected to a common audio mix to avoid latency.

To purchase the Pinewoods Collection music book go to either Pinewoods International Collection or the Folk Arts Center’s Music Shop. The Pinewoods Band recordings are available from the Folk Arts Center.

Please donate generously to FAC and help us through this period of social distancing when all of our events are postponed. We suggest a $10 donation for enjoying this live music dance workshop but any and all contributions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for supporting the Folk Arts Center of New England!
