Sassafras Stomp is Johanna Davis on fiddle and Adam Nordell on guitar, feet, and mouth. They're a nationally acclaimed band not just because their music is a compelling mix of the modern and traditional, both grounding dancers and elevating dancers at once, but also because they're kind, awesome people. They'll be rocking our evening.

Maggie Robinson will be calling this evening. She's well known in Maine as a caller and as the organizer of our beloved Topsham dance.



Join us from 10 p.m. 'til close for snacks and drinks just down the street at Local 188 (just West of Longfellow Square). They've created a new tapas menu just for us, and will offer PICD dancers a discount on drinks and grub. Sweet, ain't they? All ages welcome!



Directions may be found on the State Street Church website.

Parking is free after 6pm on street around the State Street/West End neighborhood. We recommend saving extra time, as it might take a bit to find a spot.
