Take a Break from Hibernation at the Groundhog Day Dance!

Jan 22 2013

 

The Lake Claire Community Land Trust invites you to dance the midwinter blues away at our first-ever Groundhog Day Dance. It’s happening on Saturday, February 2, 8:00 pm to midnight, at the First Existential Congregation, 470 Candler Park Drive, 30307. A number of local musicians have agreed to perform to help support and develop the Land Trust’s programs, and the music planned for this evening demonstrates that idea in a dramatic way.

Once again, Dr. Bill Fleming has agreed to perform, recruiting friends with whom to harmonize and play. Whenever Bill plays, people feel like moving around rhythmically, and Groundhog Day at the “E Church” will be an opportunity to satisfy the need we all have to dance, along with helping our local green spot remain healthy.

Ralph Roddenbery and Tommy Jones, who have performed at the Land Trust in the past, will be returning to give a hand to the Land Trust as it moves to expand its programs supporting the arts, nature, and the community. Ralph and Tommy will be drawing on that deep Southern tradition of “poetry in motion” as the evening progresses

Opening the program will be the Radio Ramblers, including Bob and Gail Vinsentin, long time friends of the Land Trust, and Michael Ellis, Atlanta’s legendary Good Morning Blues man. Michael’s Friday morning “Good Morning Blues” program, 6:00 to 8:00 a.m. on WRFG (89.3 on the FM dial, and streaming live 24 hours a day at wrfg.org) has long enchanted listeners. Not only does Michael have an encyclopedic knowledge of the genre, but he is an adept practitioner of the musical arts: you do not want to miss his eclectic guitar stylings.

Beverages and snacks will be served; suggested donation is $10.00 (and up, as Charlie Pope likes to say). We hope to see you there in support of one of Atlanta and Lake Claire’s favorite garden spots, the Lake Claire Community Land Trust!
