DENMARK – Talented musicians bring their original songs to life on stage to an empty Denmark Arts Center but a very full Facebook venue with the Pop-Up Live series – a way to get live music to our community virtually. Virtual live performances will be shown Friday nights on Facebook. This mix of musicians, songwriting, and styles ideally will strike a chord and perk people’s musical interest.

October 30th with Carlos Angeles Olmeda at 9:30 p.m.

November 6th with Head Above the Clouds at 7 p.m.

November 13th with Terry Swett at 7 p.m.

Our second of four in this series is Carlos Angeles Olmeda. Some people across the U.S. were not able to join us for our first week, so a whole fresh set will be performed. His songwriting creations illuminate, resonate, and downright gyrate.

Our third of four in the series is Head Above the Clouds a mixture of Americana Jam band with originals, Dead, Dylan, Prine, etc. Head Above the Clouds is comprised of musicians Aaron Nadeau, guitar & vocals; Mark McKelvy, Bass & vocals; Scott Thayer, drums; Steve Walsh, drums; Brackett Clark Keyboards & vocals with special guests.

Our fourth and final performance in the series is Terry Swett featuring his new song, “My Sweet Maine.” Swett spent his early years developing a travelogue of stories inspired by small-town America. During his many travels throughout North America he often sang for his supper as he matured into a prolific songwriter. At one point he even spent time along Nashville’s “music row” polishing song-writing skills and sharing stages with some of the best writers in the business. Most of Terry’s 40+ years of performing have been either as a solo act or as part of a duet; but in recent years with his creation of the Milltown Roadshow he has finally had an opportunity to become part of a complete band and says; “I just love it!! For those who want to show their love a virtual tip jar will be available.

Denmark Arts Center director, Susan Beane noted, “the Pop-Up Live series is another way we can present music for our community safely during this pro-longed and challenging pandemic. It is important in difficult times to feed one’s soul with art.” Join us on Denmark Arts Center’s Facebook page for a live performance. Music makes a difference.
