The 2019 Kilts & Ghillies Tea Dance was held Saturday, April 27 at the South Britain Congregational Church’s Parish House. 3:00 to 7:00 PM.
Light supper (including a tremendous spread of potluck contributions from Branch members!), desserts, tea/coffee were served at intermission.
The band this year was led by New Zealand’s Sharlene Penman on piano!! We were fortunate that her annual visit to the U.S. coincided with Kilts & Ghillies! Joining her were fiddlers Jenny Evans and Amy Beshara, both are local artists.
Peter Price and Sandra Bethray worked on devising the 2019 program with frequent emails to Sharlene for suggestions. At least two popular New Zealand dances were included. The program is listed on the reverse of the Registration flyer.
