The schedule of bands and personnel is tentative and subject to change. Live music for every dance:



We do American Social Folk dancing mixed thoroughly with its Celtic-British roots - contras and squares and circle dances in the tradition of a community dance in a barn, grange hall, social hall or someone's home where all gathered for good music, to dance and to enjoy each other's company.

All dances taught: no partners necessary (the dances are usually danced in couples, but we change partners frequently); children welcome with adult participation; come once, come often.

Cost: Donation to cover costs for Bands, hall and publicity
