The Gawler Family and the All-Comers Band

The Gawler Family Band

Since January, the Belfast Flying Shoes All-Comers Band has been capably—and joyfully—led by the Gawler Family: Molly, Edith, Elsie, John & Ellen Gawler and Bennett Konesni. Their collective joyfulness is essential to preserving the accessible, inclusive, and “come all ye” spirit of the madcap ensemble of musicians that play for our monthly BFS Community Dances.

You can read more about how the Gawlers help Maine music traditions thrive in this brilliant article by Bangor Daily News correspondent Abigail Curtis.

Come on out every first Friday, with your instrument in hand, and join the All-Comers Band. What joy!
