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.
