SHOWING ALL EVENTS
Sat Dec 16, 20173rd Saturday Contra Dance  

Ann Kosinski on fiddle gives power or nuanced delicacy to Free Fall's unique, delightful medleys. Barbara Whitney & Patty McCollom offer two more fiddles, whether to supercharge the melody or to harmonize. Patty's tin whistles & bodhran lilt the Irish tunes while her banjo fits old-time perfectly. Jim Kosinski anchors the rhythm for the dancers with his bass & guitar and rocks the dance with his improvisations on mandolin, guitar, & banjo. John Rogers, caller of dances in the world's Western & Eastern Hemispheres, brings a sure approach to his varied collection of fun dance patterns. Dancers Under 30 Years Old (w/ID) Are Admitted FREE ***** !!! Holiday potluck for refreshment break. Dancers are encouraged to bring such snacks as veggies & chips & dip, fruit, cookies & cake, etc. No main dishes, thanks!
