April 3rd Contradance

At this month's contradance, Traverse be providing the music and Gary Aney will be calling.

Traverse is a locally-based band featuring Liz Brown on flute, Carol Mandigo on guitar, and Bernd Neumann on fiddle. Together they play traditional music from the various Celtic cultures and contemporary American contradance tunes.

Caller Gary is a popular favorite in central New York and a longtime dancer as well. He combines his love of historical interpretation with modern influences to call a pleasing balance of contemporary and traditional contradances. He calls dances from the Revolutionary War era, the nineteenth, twentieth and even twenty-first centuries which makes for an interesting blend of sounds and styles.

This combination will create an evening which will be enjoyable for dancers of all ages and ability levels. So try to join us.
