It's 2022. The world is still on fire, but we will have a waltz

The one hour or so Flash Waltz will be Sunday August 14th at the Portland Peninsula Park Rose Garden. We will be in the Northwest corner of the Rose Garden. Use the Rose Garden access staircase near 6082 N. Albina Ave. Slightly more distant, a Rose Garden access ramp is located near the corner of N. Borthwick Ave. and N. Ainsworth St. Here is the Google Map with the closest access points and best places to park.

Musicians, please show up by 4:15 so we can get arranged and settled. Playing (and dancing) will start promptly at 5:00.

Bring a chair, a stand, music, clips or strong magnets to hold the music (always some breeze), and water to drink. We will be mostly in the shade.

In order to use the park without a permit, all music must be acoustic, no alcohol is allowed, and the event is free.


Here is the playlist. The order will be Carolan's Welcome, Sheebeg Sheemore, etc., ending with Ashokan Farewell.


Here are some youtube versions to practice along with. You should be able to use the youtube setting icon to adjust the playback speed. Please note that the normal speed of the youtube version may be faster or slower than the speed we are aiming for.
