June 6th Contradance

Our June dance will be this Friday, June 6th. Music will be by the band Entwyned and Bob Nicholson will be calling.

Entwyned is a band from Indiana, made up of Twy Bethard, on fiddle and foot percussion, with John Paolillo on mandola, bouzouki, and other mandolin-family instruments. They play “world music with old-time syncopation and a Celtic lilt”, focusing on innovative arrangements of traditional and modern tunes.
While they play regularly in Indianapolis and Bloomington, they also travel to many dances around the east coast. Check out this link https://sites.google.com/site/entwyned/
for more about them and a video with some samples of their music.

Bob, a Syracuse native, has been calling contra and square dances since 1990. But he is best known for his skill as a dance teacher. His relaxed style and patience have made him especially successful with beginner dancers and his enthusiasm and energy make the dances fun for both newcomers and experienced dancers. And you'll frequently find him dancing next to you, to help out beginners or just for the fun of it!

This is the last dance before the summer break, and it's a great one to begin or expand your contradancing experience, so try to get there.
