10/30 Carlos Angeles Olmeda at DAC's Pop-UP LIVE Series

Updated: 5 days ago

It is time for Pop-UP LIVE series. Virtual live performances Friday nights on Facebook. Talented musicians bring their original songs to life on stage to an empty Denmark Arts Center but a very FULL Facebook venue.


  • October 30, 2020, with Carlos Angeles Olmeda -SECOND SET- at 9:30 p.m. est (west coast viewers 6:30 p.m. pst)

  • November 6, 2020, with Head Above the Clouds at 7:00 p.m. est

  • November 13, 2020, with Terry Swett at 7:00 p.m. est

This mix of musicians, songwriting, and styles ideally will strike a chord and perk people’s musical interest. Our limited Pop-UP LIVE series is a way to get live music to our community virtually. The Denmark Arts Center is closed but SO open to virtual performances.

Our second of four in this series is Carlos Angeles Olmeda-SECOND SET. Some people across the U.S. were not able to join us for our first Pop-UP, so 1-hour earlier and a whole fresh set will be performed for those new and who joined us last Friday. His songwriting creations illuminate, resonate, and downright gyrate! 


Our third of four in the series is Head Above the Clouds, a mixture of Americana Jam band with originals, Dead, Dylan, Prine, etc. Head Above the Clouds is comprised of musicians Aaron Nadeau, guitar and vocals; Mark McKelvy, Bass and vocals; Scott Thayer, drums; Steve Walsh, drums; Brackett Clark Keyboards, and vocals with special guests.

Our fourth and final performance in the series is Terry Swett featuring his new song, My Sweet Maine. Terry spent his early years developing a travelogue of stories inspired by small-town America. During his many travels throughout North America, he often sang for his supper as he matured into a prolific songwriter. At one point he even spent time along Nashville’s “music row” polishing song-writing skills and sharing stages with some of the best writers in the business. Most of Terry’s 40+ years of performing have been either as a solo act or as part of a duet; but in recent years with his creation of the Milltown Roadshow he has finally had an opportunity to become part of a complete band and says; “I just love it!!" For those who want to show their love, a virtual tip jar will be available.

Denmark Arts Center director, Susan Beane, noted, “the Pop-UP LIVE series is another way we can present music for our community safely during this pro-longed and challenging pandemic. It is important in difficult times to feed one’s soul with art.” Join us on Denmark Arts Center’s Facebook page for a live performance. Music makes a difference.
