Bagaduce Music is delighted to announce its first event of the 2021 season with the Gawler Family Band as it “Welcomes in the Light”, virtually, via its website, www.bagaducemusic.org on Saturday, January 23rd. This event will consist of a FREE CONCERT at 7:00 PM, preceeded by a series of hourly workshops by band members.

The Gawler family of Maine has curated this concert specifically for the Bagaduce Music audience, focusing mainly on songs selected from the Bagaduce Music collection that anyone can sing with the theme of winter and light, and recorded outside in the freshest of January air deep in the woods of Maine. They will be singing around their own fire and encourage listeners to light a fire of their own and sing along!
