May 4th Contradance

Friday May 4th will be the next contradance at the Presbyterian Church in Cooperstown and the entertainment will be provided by the Walker Family Band.

A real-life family, parents Kathy on fiddle and Jeff on guitar started playing contradances around NY and New England. Then as their family grew, so did the band! With the kids adding a wide variety of instruments, the Walker family plays a lively mix of Irish, Scottish, French-Canadian, Scandinavian and American fiddle music. And Dad Jeff also does the calling!

At our dance, Kathy and Jeff will be joined by five of their children ... Peter playing pennywhistle and accordion, Mary Claire on bass, Patrick playing flute and guitar, Forrest, percussion and Laurel on fiddle and mandolin.

This delightful combination of adults, children and teens, brings an energy and excitement which is unique and sure to provide another wonderful dance experience!
