May 6th Contradance

Our dance this month will feature Uncle Joe and the Rosebud Ramblers with Peter Blue calling.

The band is made up of members Joe Chicone on banjo, fiddler Renee Baum, Mike Charnoky playing guitar, and Robin Ploss on bass. They play a wonderful mix of lively New England fiddle tunes, energetic old-time tunes from before the Civil War and family oriented traditional folk tunes. And to top it off, Uncle Joe, Mike, and Robin do vocals also!

Peter is a musician, caller, and long-time dancer from Oneonta, who has appeared throughout the northeast with many of the top bands. His vast repertoire of dances from many musical styles and his easy-going calling style always make for an entertaining evening for all.

And remember, you don't need a dance partner or any experience, since each dance is taught.
Hope to see you there for all the fun.
