SHOWING ALL EVENTS
Sat Apr 21, 20183rd Saturday Contra Dance  

Chris Murphy, fiddler on a musical quest, says,"The most important thing for me is that music feel visceral, that it feel physical. I don't care about the technique of it. I care that when it starts to happen, I'm feeling something, and my audience is feeling something." Chris invites the dancers to share his world & journey of living music created in the moment, "constantly trying to move around to let the light of life shine through." Barbara Stewart's wonderful treasury of contra patterns and the art of Chris Murphy, playing solo for us with a variety of melodic & rhythm instruments, will energize our dance in unique and memorable ways. Chris is best known at Santa Barbara dances as the fiddler for "Devil's Box String Band."

Sat Jun 16, 20183rd Saturday Contra Dance  

Keiko Cadby, fiddler best known till now by English Country Dancers, combines with two of "The Syncopaths," Jeff Spero on keyboards and Christa Burch on bodhran and vocals, to create music for contra that is ethereal, elegant, tantalizingly mysterious. A wonderfully evocative blend that is rich in possibilities. Caller Jacqui Grennan, known both locally & nationally, deserves our thanks for drawing attention to a trio we hope will inspire contra dancers for a long time to come.
