Buttonwood’s Balkan Beltane featuring The Underscore Orkestra

Event Date: 
Sunday, March 31, 2013 - 3:30pm

Join with us as we lift our spirits in the unity of Joy. Happiness is encouraged and we’ll be feasting together in the arts with dancing, music, food and laughter! I can guarantee you a good time if you come with an open mind!

2:30 potluck Balkan style (we encourage you to bring any healthy dish to share)
3:30 concert and dance

Beltane is a traditional Gaelic festival and an ancient source of our Easter celebration of rebirth. Feasts, song and dance are among its virtues. Bonfires often roar at this celebration of the onset of summer. We may not have a bonfire but we will feast!

The Underscore Orkestra is a Portland, OR based band, playing a blend of Balkan, Klezmer, Gypsy Jazz and Swing, with a repertoire consisting of both original and traditional material.

The Underscore Orkestra has been performing for the past 7 + years, touring all around the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Central America, and has been seen from intimate coffee shop setting all the way to huge outdoor festivals. Guaranteed to get you up and moving whether you like to swing dance, Balkan folk dance, or just go out and shake it!!!

Bring a dish at 2:30 and come feast with us. If it is of Balkan, Slavic, or Irish descent (and you can explain it) you will win 2 guest passes and a chance to win a pound of Slambovian coffee & a gift pack of CDs.

Reservations $10 in advance, $15 at door without dish, $12 at door with dish. Limited seating.
