More chords will be added to your tool box and you will learn how to transpose songs from one key to another. Of course, there will be many laughs along the way and you will need to practice. The pace will be geared to the proficiency level of those enrolling. At a minimum, all students are expected to know basic chord formations in the Keys of C and G and be capable of smooth chord transitions. If you love playing the ukulele and you want to enhance your knowledge of this wonderful instrument, this course is a must. Please have a serviceable soprano, concert, or tenor size ukulele, an electronic tuner, and a passion for playing.

Blazo-Leavitt Homestead

Free

with Peter Cyr, Sacopee Valley Adult & Community Education

Calendar Jun 23, 2019 at 1 pm, runs for 1 week

The Blazo-Leavitt Homestead was built by William Blazo in North Parsonsfield. The ell--with one large chimney--was built in 1812. The main section of the house--with four more chimneys--was added in 1817. It is a two-story Portsmouth Federal-style home with elaborate doorways, ornate interior woodwork, a Palladian window over the front door, and a large central hall. It was in the same family until 1974. From 1977 until 2008, the homestead went through four different owners. From 2008 until late 2013, the structure was vacant. The present owner has been in the process of restoring the homestead since November 2013. It is now finished! The Rufus-Porter type murals and graining by artist Sandy Howe are outstanding. The Blazo-Leavitt Homestead, 515 North Street, North Parsonsfield, is located on Route 160 South in North Parsonsfield, diagonally across the street from the Parsonsfield Seminary.  Please note: There is no charge for this tour, but donations benefitting the Parsonsfield-Porter Historical Society can be contributed at the time of the tour.Please preregister as we need a minimum of 4 people to run the course and have a maximum capacity of 25-30. Ages 18+
