February 6th Contradance

At our February dance, music will be by Eleemosynary and the caller will be Casey Mullaney.

What does Eleemosynary mean? It means "of, relating to, or dependent on charity; charitable". It is also the name of a band, made up of Peter Blue on nyckelharpa and button accordion, Carol Mandigo on guitar, and Danny Birnbaum on bass. Eleemosynary plays traditional and new contra dance music with an emphasis on tunes composed by Peter on nyckkelharpa and accordion.

Casey began calling while a student at Hartwick College and since graduating, has extended her experience at a variety of dances throughout upstate New York. Her warm and friendly style reflects her love of contradancing and, she enjoys working with beginners as well as challenging the more experienced dancer.
