Trad Dance & Music Movies – Sun. March 13!

The BFS Board just heard about the Portland Roadhouse Independent Film Festival – Sun March 13, starting at 2pm ET. Here’s the detailed schedule, with these films (and directors)

  • Paid to Eat Ice Cream: Bob McQuillen & New England Contra Dance (David Millstone)
  • The Canote Brothers Story (Larry Edelman)
  • Don’t Get Trouble in Your Mind: The Carolina Chocolate Drops’ Story (John Whitehead)
  • Take it Back (Ben Hunter & Joe Seamons)
  • Take Hands (Doug Plummer)

So, if you missed Mac’s Music & Movie on Feb 5, you can see it on Sunday! (Plus, the DVD is also available anytime at the Belfast Free Library.) Chrissy Fowler is looking forward to the documentary about the Grammy-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops, and is especially excited to see her Pourparler colleague Stacy Rose, who’s featured in Take Hands (about the impact of community dancing in Coos Bay, OR.)
