Scotia band plays twice in October

Experience the harmonic resonance of conductor Jill Petricca and the Scotia Band, "Humboldt's community band," twice in Fortuna during October!

On Saturday, Oct. 5 Scotia Band will make their traditional appearance at Clendenen's Cider Works (junction of U.S. Route 101 and 12th Street) during Fortuna's Apple Harvest Festival at noon, playing an eclectic mix of American and international tunes, including one written by trombone artist Gregg Moore.

In the form of their specialty German band, Pumpernickel & Sauerkraut, many members of the Scotia Band will punctuate Fortuna Senior Services' Oktoberfest at Rohner Park on Saturday, Oct. 19, from 1 to 4 p.m., performing polkas, waltzes, gallops and schottisches for the heel kickers.
