Fall Dinner: THE MUSIC AND SONGS OF ST MARY’S
Friday, October 14
Fall Dinner: THE MUSIC AND SONGS OF ST MARY’S  (Events)
6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Olde Breton Inn
Storyteller and balladeer David  Norris brings his original songs and stories about the music and dances of St Mary’s County when we were young.
 
Music and dance are as much a part of St Mary’s County as crabs and oysters. Mr. Norris will stir our memories of Paul Jones dancing, parlor dances, house parties. And, of course, those wonderful "socials" held at parish halls througout the County.
 
This Fall Dinner will bring back memories a bygone era when songs were melodic; when couples slow-danced cheek-to-cheek; when families and communities came together for evenings of good fun -- and maybe just a wee bit of mischief. 
 
WE MUST RECEIVE YOUR RESERVATION BY OCTOBER 10TH
