T-Acadie will perform a Music for Mavis at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 13, at the Gazebo at 98 Mathews Way, in Turner Center.

The dance band and folk trio from Maine is equally at home playing for concerts, contradances, or Cajun dances.

Band members include: Pam Weeks on fiddle, mountain dulcimer, guitar, singing; Jim Joseph on button accordion, 5-string banjo, mandolin, fiddle, jaw harp, percussion, feet, singing; Bill Olson on guitar, bass, singing, calling. They play a variety of music including traditional French Canadian and New England dance tunes; Cajun waltzes, two steps, Cajun blues and Zydeco tunes; old time southern tunes and songs often sung a capella in 3 part harmony; original tunes written by band “tunesmith,” Pam Weeks, which range from sizzling reels and jigs to mesmerizing aires and sweet waltzes.

In a contradance setting, they will get everyone moving to the beat with Quebecois reels and old timey southern hoedowns, but the evening will often be punctuated by Weeks singing a Cajun waltz, or by a contradance done to a set of old time Cajun reels started off with just fiddle and ti’ fer (triangle).

Upcoming Music for Mavis concerts will feature: Hot Damn – Norm and Deb, Sept. 20; and Mary Murphy, Sept. 27.
