February 3rd Contradance

Our next monthly contradance will be held on Friday February 3rd at the Presbyterian Church in Cooperstown. Hilton Baxter will be calling to music by Peter Blue & Friends.

Hilton began calling contradances in the late 1990's and was the founder of the Contradance in Binghamton.
He has called with many of the great contra musicians, primarily in Eastern Pennsylvania and Upstate New York.

Peter has been playing for contradances for many years. His skills include playing a variety of percussion instruments, diatonic accordions and the nyckelharpa and his repertoire spans traditional and contemporary,
with a special love for Quebecois and Swedish music.

Peter plays with many 'Friends', musicians from the local area. For this dance, we are expecting Carol Mandigo on guitar and a surprise fiddler. Whoever he brings, he always provides an exciting evening of music
and fun.
