The MDI YMCA is incredibly excited to welcome in the folk band Kotwica on Friday, January 26, to play a sampling of songs and dance music inspired by the area from the Baltic to the Black Sea!
Directed by David Rapkievian of Bar Harbor, the ensemble features musicians on fiddle, button accordion, balalaika, oud, guitar, and string bass. Vocalists providing beautiful harmonies in the group are led by Anne Tatgenhorst. The group's repertoire includes songs and dance music from Poland, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Macedonia, and beyond.
The specific folk dances are fun and easy to learn, especially when led by members of the band. No experience necessary!
The concert will be held on the 26th from 6pm to 8pm in the Y gym. Tickets for adults are $10 but children get in for free. Snacks will be provided.
Make sure you swing by the Y on the 26th for this energizing and unique experience that is guaranteed fun for all ages!
