Happy New Year, everyone! Our Winter Break is over and the Hearth Community is back with a bang with two amazing local musicians.
Kirsten Lamb (double bass, voice) and Jon Cannon (fiddle) will perform favorite jazz, soul, blues, and country waltzes at Waltzdays on Sunday, January 28.
For the first time, we’ll have a seating area as well as a dance floor so you can get up and dance or sit down and listen.
Want to learn how to waltz? We’ll have two Hearth Volunteers available to teach the basics from 7:45 and through the end of the night.
