November 6th Contradance


Once again, our monthly dance will be featuring some great contradance music!
The band will be Rosetree and Hilton Baxter will be calling.

Rosetree consists of Amy Shapiro on fiddle and nyckleharpa and Allen Lutins playing guitar. Both musicians are well-known in the Binghamton region folk scene, having played for many years with the group "Wild Rose and the Thorns". As a duo, their performances feature Celtic, Americana, Eastern European, Scandinavian and other world folk styles.

To hear some of their music, check out their website: http://www.lutins.org/rosetree/

Hilton has been calling contradances for nearly 20 years and was the founder of the Binghamton Community Dance. As a caller, he has worked with many top bands throughout upstate New York, Pennsylvania and the East Coast. He has a calm and easy-going style, gives clear instructions for each dance, and loves adding a surprise dance or two.

This promises to be an evening full of fun for all!

And if you're looking for something to do with your kids, bring them along.
They're always welcome to dance, no matter their age, and if they're under 12, they get in free!
