Saturday Evening Waltz Party with Glen Loper and Bethany Waickman
August 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Glen Loper on mandolin and tenor banjo, Bethany Waickman on guitar and piano
Raised in southern Maine, Glen has played mandolin for over twenty years. He turned his focus to fiddle music after discovering the contradance scene in college. Since then, he has dedicated as much time as possible to traditional music and dance. Glen has toured with a number of bands to play dances, weddings, and festivals across the country.
He also enjoys teaching music from him home in Portland, ME, where he gives private lesson for mandolin and tenor banjo.
Bethany Waickman is a guitarist based in Portland, Maine. She accompanies some of the country’s finest players, be it at dance halls, pub sessions, or on the concert stage. Bethany grew up playing both classical and folk music with her family in northern New York and was drawn to the New England dance scene after discovering the world of festivals and music camps in her teenage years. Bethany is a mainstay in the New England contradance circuit, playing in countless combinations of the scene’s myriad musicians.
