December 5th Contradance

Our December dance will have music by NO'Shanigans and Hilton Baxter calling.

NO'Shanigans is a trio from Ithaca (a spinoff from O'Shanigans) and is led by Michael Ludgate. It has several 'occasional members' with Mike provides the rhythm, playing mandolin, 'feet', and guitar and in December he'll be joined by Lindsay Clark on fiddle, and Katrina Mackey as second fiddle. They perform fiddle and traditional dance music, based on Celtic, American and worldwide tunes.

You can read more about them or listen to some of their music at their website http://oshanigans.org

Hilton Baxter, founder of the Binghamton Country Dance group, has been calling contradances for nearly 20 years. He works throughout upstate New York and Pennsylvania, as well as venues up and down the East Coast. His smooth calling style is easy to follow and fun for dancers at all levels.

This is the last dance in 2014, so come, warm up, and enjoy the season with us!
