May 1st Contradance

This Friday, our monthly contradance will have music by Uncle Joe & the Rosebud Ramblers and Michael Kernan will be calling.

The Rosebud Ramblers are made up of Joe Chicone on banjo, Renee Baum on fiddle, Tom Farrell on guitar and Nancy Spero on bass. The group plays a mix of lively up tempo New England fiddle tunes, energetic old time tunes and family oriented traditional folk songs, with Joe and Tom adding an occasional vocal.

Mike Kernan has been the house caller at Saratoga Springs' start-up Parting Glass series, called at the NEFFA Festival in 2014 and many other dances in NY, MA, VT and CT. He is a dancer himself (both a contradancer and an English country dancer), which is what he attributes his success a a caller.

Join us for another fun-filled night of dancing.
