Help us drive the snakes out of Stanwoodopolis this Thursday night 6-9 PM with a wee Celtic celebration at the Stanwood Hotel. We’re greenin’ the town and celebrating an early spring. Lads and lassies one and all come down and dance to the wild jigs of the South End String Band. There be blarney stones plenty to kiss and leprechauns to toss. If you’re lucky enough to be Irish … you’re plenty lucky enough! Thursday night we’re ALL Irish.
Stanwood Hotel March 17th, 6-9 PM
History is written by the winners, some say, but those folks obviously never ran into the South End String Band. Saturday, Feb 6th, the Stanwoodopolis Historical Society will host ‘Camano in a Clamshell’, a brief but complete history of the island by us losers, the South End String Band, fiddling once again while Rome burns with special guest Julie Campbell on violin.
According to the band’s grief counselor, Skeeter Daddle, it will be a fair and balanced accounting of Camano’s rich past as a backwash paradise accompanied by song and music. As always, food will be provided, wine and beer will be available and ample, the music will be spirited and history degrees will be awarded to those who complete the course by the prestigious if non-accredited Elger Bay Institoot of Aesthetic Enlargement.
7 pm Sat. Feb. 6th, Floyd Norgaard Cultural Center. $15 donation at the door. Y’all come on down! Remember, you forget history, you got to repeat it. Don’t make us do that to you. Once is plenty.
