Portland Revels is proud to introduce our new program of Tradition Days. Several times a year we’ll be partnering with
local artists and “tradition bearers” to teach us traditions from around the world.
Upcoming Tradition Days
August 27th, 3 to 9 PM
Ticket Link and Venue info coming soon.
Our August Tradition Days will include Morris Dancing, and Revels community favorite Band of Fools with Betsy Branch. Stay until the evening and enjoy a poolside pub sing by an atmospheric fire pit!
For our first Tradition Day we welcomed Liz Hutchinson and Yelizaveta Nersesova of Dos Minas (www.dosminas.com) in to teach us how the music of tango has changed throughout history and across culture. And, or course, to teach us to DANCE! Betsy Branch, our associate music director, put together a “Band of Fools”, a chance for friends to make music in a group with whatever instrument (and skill level) they brought. And Leela Grace, a nationally-known singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and percussive dancer who was a wonderful part of the 2012 Appalachian Revels, taught us by-ear harmony singing.
Stop back here soon to find out more about our Upcoming Tradition Days in August and October.
