Parsonsfield, ME (orig. Nahant...
Kathy and I have been working hard repairing and remodeling our new (to us) home in Maine, and now we feel like
it's ready enough to invite guests. Part of the reason we purchased this house was because it gives us some room to entertain (and plenty of parking).

Mr PianoWorld Estonia in Maine



We can't wait to Host Our First Piano Party in our new home!

This is also a welcome to our home.

We are located on Moulton Hill Road in Parsonsfield Maine, considered southern Maine ( southwest).
While our house is up in the hills, it's really only about an hour to the Maine coast (Wells, Ogunquit, Portland), or about the
same to North Conway New Hampshire (and the Kancamangus highway).

There are lots of incredible scenic views all around our area, starting at the top of our hill (we're about half way up), with many more within a few minutes drive.


The party is Sunday October 13th, starting around 1:30 p.m. and ending (?!).
This should be right around peak foliage time in our area. I can't
begin to describe how beautiful it is up here, the mountain vistas are breath taking! We are surrounded by lakes and ponds, apple orchards, and beautiful woods/forests.


The Visit Maine website has tons of listings of things to do and see in and around our area. Here is a direct link to their fall listings.
Maine in the Fall



Hotels near us, keep in mind it is Columbus Day Weekend and foliage time, so book early.

We would like to get some idea of how many people might join us for our party.

If you feel you would like to come, please let us know (and let us know if you will be bringing additional guests with you).

Also, if you are within driving distance and can help out with the food/libations, please let us know that too (Pot Luck).

We will also be coming up with a list of places to stay in the area, should any of you decide to travel, combining the piano party with a chance to see the foliage, mountains, lakes, rivers, antique shops, etc.

PLEASE LET US KNOW if you will be coming, if you are bringing any guests, and if you will be bringing some food/drink.


You can email me at frank@pianoworld.com , please put Party at Mr. PianoWorld's in the subject line, so your email doesn't get lost in the shuffle.


See you on October 13th!

Hello Frank,

Sounds great, can we play your piano?

We can help out with food but I'm not sure what libations are.

My wife and I are looking into some lodging.

Sorry you can't make our party, but please do come by some time.
We're always happy to have someone visit to play and/or listen to the piano.

And Kirby the wonder dog loves company :-)

Frank--won't be able to make it, but the scenery will be great. We have some raw land in New Hampshire, about an hour and a half from you. I thought a glimpse of the scenery in October might entice some visitors for you:

Thanks LFL, pretty picture.

We've taken a lot of rides in the areas around our home, we know there are tons of beautiful mountains and lakes, with lots of maple trees. Can't wait for fall.

Sorry you can't make our party, but let us know if/when you are in the area.

And if you ever decide to host your own piano party with that Shigeru Kawai, be sure to let us know :-)

Hi Les,

That's great!
Looking forward to meeting you. We'll do our best with the foliage.

Depends on what you like for accomodations. There is a wonderful B&B about an hour from us in North Berwick Maine, called Angel of the Berwicks. It is a beautiful Victorian house, and the hosts are just wonderful people.

Plus, they have a baby grand piano! The house is only about a 20 minute ride to Wells and Ogunquit, home of the Maine Diner (fantastic lobster pie) and Pizza Napoli (best pizza this side of Italy).
http://www.angeloftheberwicks.com/

If you decide to go, tell Ben & Sally we sent you.
Ben makes the best muffins ever, fresh and different every morning.

If B&B isn't your thing, let me know and we'll come up with some other places in the area.

We are actually somewhat central between the Portland Maine area and North Conway NH.
Speaking of which, the Kancamagus Highway in NH is an amazing ride for scenery, as is route 153 (which you can pick up about 20 minutes from our house).

Just posted as a reminder to old coffee room friends over at WTF (well tempered forum)

Finally can commit to it as other business engagement date changed.

Looking forward to seeing your new place, playing your new Estonia, and meeting old friends and new.

Hi, Frank! I'm planning on being there and I'd be happy to bring something to satisfy the munchies. Let me know if there's anything specific you'd like me to bring.

I haven't played one since the 70's. I can some basics (old blues/rock) but nothing fancy. Still, I love the sound of the old A-100 :-)

Kathy busy making her potato salad and other goodies, I'm doing little projects.
Can't wait for the party to begin.

See you tomorrow.

Kathy, Kirby (the wonder dog) and I would like to thank everyone who came to help
us celebrate our new home and our first official piano party!

Many thanks to Larry Buck too for making three trips up here from Lowell MA to voice and tune my piano, it sounded incredible and everyone enjoyed playing it.

It was so nice to have some of our old friends come to our party, lilylady and Bernard have been forums members for a long time, and we've all attended a fair number of piano parties together. Sue and Howard are new friends (meaning only a few years) but we feel like we've known them much longer.

Les K. and his girlfriend Dreama have the record for longest distance traveled to our party, they drove all the way from Michigan. They are both fun friendly people you can't help liking immediately.

We had a number of new people come to our party, including some local people we'd only met recently.
It made us feel good to know our neighbors welcome us to the area and wanted to be part of our celebration.

And I was thrilled that some of my relatives came, including a group who drove up from the Cape (as in Cape Cod).

According to our guest book we had about 35 people, good thing our driveway is long.

We're hoping others will post pictures and maybe some sound recordings. In the meantime I'll post the few I took. I didn't have much time to snap pictures, too busy mingling.

All in all it was a fun day/night!
We can't wait to hold another party, well maybe we could wait a little while, say until the summer (although Kathy mentioned something about a Christmas party?).

Part of the Group


Some of the food



My cousins from the Cape


One of our Neighbors (Don Kent), my Sister, George Kelly


Howard (who recorded the playing), lilylady


Sue Keller, Ragtime Pianist Extrodinaire (she and husband Howard came up from the Cape)


My Niece Sara April, My Sister Barbara, My Cousins Daughter Wendy


George Kelly (who sang for us while his wife Terri played) and other guests.


The Maple Tree in our Front Yard. We had promised people good foliage peeping. We were hoping the sun would be out during the party so people could see it, but it stayed overcast. These pictures were taken this morning (Monday).






Looking forward to other people posting pictures too.
I may have some video as well, haven't had a chance yet to see how it came out.

Thanks again to everyone who came to our party!

Frank,

Golly, it was such a wonderful party and it made me realize how I've missed them. It was like old times! I truly enjoyed myself through and through.

You've got such a great setup there for piano parties. Beautiful home you and Kathy have made and a gorgeous piano to play on. Swoon!

It was just swell to meet new people--and such interesting people.

Whoever made the tuna salad: fantastic!! I loved the dried fruit in it.

It was a perfect day for me: The trip over was visually stunning what with the leaves, and it's not all that far. Great people, great food, great piano, great location, great venue! And Kirby was a total delight!!

WHAT A FANTASTIC PIANO PARTY IN PARSONSFIELD!

Frank and Kathy outdid themselves both with the 'redo' and this event. So much fun to see their efforts in remodeling in person, and then to meet up with old friends and new.

Piano Party, All for the sake of our love of it. And sharing was done by so many from adult beginners to the pro's!

I took some photos and some videos but having trouble getting the videos on the PC. They are coming out like a negative.

So I'll do a video later and just post some pics here now.

Of course a garden always stops me in my tracks!
