Gawler Family Band at Mayo Street Arts @ Mayo Street Arts
Jan 29 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Gawler Family Band at Mayo Street Arts @ Mayo Street Arts | Portland | Maine | United States

The Gawlers are a fun-loving, fiddling family band– from the heart of Maine– with shining smiles and joyful sounds.

John and Ellen Gawler are master fiddle and banjo players and their three daughters, Molly, Edith and Elsie grew up with the music and formed a band of their own – The Gawler Sisters. The band includes “brother” Bennett Konesni and Ethan Tischler (Elsie’s partner.) The full band has a gorgeous and high-spirited sound of string instruments (fiddle, banjo, guitar, cello, bass) as well as harmony singing.

ARTIST BIO

The Gawler Family brings you a delightful assortment of songs and tunes rooted in the traditional music of Maine and the Northeast. John and Ellen, together with their daughters Molly, Edith, Elsie, and “brother” Bennett Konesni, and Ethan Tischler (Elsie’s partner) join their intertwining family harmonies with fiddles, banjo, cello, guitar, and sometimes a few jokes.

Inspired by years of playing for dances in the old Grange halls, the Gawlers may be best known for their rollicking renditions of dance tunes in ‘the Downeast style’ with its origins in the Scots-Irish and French Canadian traditions. Their repertoire also includes a wide variety of old and new sounds, with highly spirited delivery of selections that may include a gutsy shanty or work song, a heart-wrenching ballad, a poignant a cappella number featuring the sisters, or an amusing ode to everyday life. With a particular focus on sentiments that reflect life in rural Maine, their unique arrangements are especially engaging and often go along with anecdotes of historical or humorous content.

For many years, the Gawler Family shared their music at countless festivals, farms, concerts, and schools, joyfully enlivening a sense of grassroots connection and community. With their sparkling musicianship and infectious spirit, the Gawlers have found a warm place in the hearts of audiences of all ages.

Feb 4 @ 9:00 pm – Feb 5 @ 2:00 am
NECTAR ft. Omari Nkosi @ Flask Lounge | Portland | Maine | United States
Welcome back to NECTAR, the First Fridays party at Flask Lounge. We took a month off to reconnect and rest after an incredible summer and fall of non stop shenanigans. We come back now ready to go absolutely balls to the wall and dance hard with all the people we love.
Every month, NECTAR will bring in local DJs to showcase the darkest, sweetest, deepest sounds of TECHNO and true raw underground 4×4 power. Turning FLASK into the inside of a flower, Nectar will juxtapose light and dark, life and rebirth, power with vulnerability. A safe space to close your eyes and sweat out of your shirt.
This NECTAR will feature Omari Nkosi, who is well known from New England to the west coast for his excellent, grooving techno. With countless releases regional and international labels, he has set himself apart and above with community engagement and a commitment to super groovy techno.
ALEX PREVEY, HIVE and NECTAR’s resident artist and graphic designer, will be showcasing his truly incredible designs. A huge part of NECTAR is a commitment to continuing the legacy of First Friday Art Walks, which support local artists in Portland. We are beyond stoked that Alex will be unveiling his pieces and we are sure you will be blown away by their intricacy and psychedelia.
Wear flowers in your hair, bring power for your feet, and prepare to dance.
