Seventh Annual Anne MacKay Song Swap at Poquatuck Hall

April 16, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Oysterponds Community Activities is presenting the Seventh Annual Anne MacKay Song Swap at Poquatuck Hall on Saturday, April 16 from 7 to 9 p.m. The event is a fundraiser for Orient’s historic Poquatuck Hull and is dedicated to the late Anne MacKay, who co-organized the first Song Swap six years ago.

The Song Swap is a great outpouring of local voices singing their favorite songs together. Organized by Gideon D’Arcangelo, the Song Swap is set up like the living room of a family of musicians at home, swapping songs all evening with friends and neighbors. The audience sings along or just listens, as they like.

Gideon will be Master of Ceremonies — he is a singer and guitarist who learned many of his songs while working with Alan Lomax, the great american folklorist and song hunter.

Local musicians Mimi Fahs, Peter Millis, Nancy Baxter, Grayson Murphy, Roma Baran, Helen Hooke and many others will perform.

The cost is $10 and all proceeds go to Oysterponds Community Activities. Baked goods will be offered for sale.
