Flatfoot Dancing - Live Appalachian Music  -  Cape Charles
(1/13/2017 - 12/31/2017)
Calendar Image

Flatfoot Dancing Every 2nd Friday at the Lemon Tree Gallery and Studio. Bring the whole family for a romping good time.

Not sure what Flatfoot Dancing is? Well, Bill McGlothlin is here to show you how. Using the toes, heel, and ball of the foot to strike and slide across the floor, flat-footing is a percussive dance style that articulates the rhythms of mountain fiddle and banjo music. Come make old-time music with your feet while you move to the rhythm of live Appalachian music played by skilled performers and Eastern Shore fixtures: Allen Philpot, Jeff Madson, Sheila Sheppard, Scott Wade, Dan Crockett and Jeff Gray.

 "The music just goes in your ear, down through your soul, and comes out through your feet.’’

Free Admission. Everyone Welcome.

Film - Documentary - Barrier Islands Center's: Remarks and Screening of “Watermen”  -  Cape Charles
(8/2/2017)

The Eastern Shore of Virginia National Wildlife Refuge is proud to host this free screening of "Watermen". This third chapter of the Eastern Shore series of documentary films produced by the Barrier Islands Center, in partnership with Academy-Award nominated filmmaker James Spione, explores the lives of the last independent fishermen to work the waters of the Atlantic and Chesapeake Bay. Told exclusively in the voices of the hardy individuals that have made a life’s work of fishing, crabbing and oystering off Virginia’s wild coast, Spione’s intimate first-person stories bring us inside the deeply personal challenges and triumphs that define life on the water. Despite hardships and an uncertain future, the film richly captures the fierce pride and enduring optimism of the Eastern Shore’s watermen. Join BIC Education Director and producer Sally Dickinson to learn about the fascinating history of Virginia’s Barrier Islands and the Eastern Shore.
