November 4th Contradance


Our November contradance will be on Friday November 4th.
The caller will be Bob Nicholson and the band will be Fancy That!

Bob is a long-time caller from Syracuse with a smooth, easy-going style. He is well-known for his teaching skill which quickly helps get beginners dancing with experienced dancers. And he has a knack for picking the right dances for the crowd, making for a fun-filled night.  

Fancy That! is led by Curt Osgood, well known for his skill playing hammered dulcimer, as well as his efforts (through workshops and classes) to stimulate interest in the hammered dulcimer and its traditions.
Playing with him are fiddler Henry Jankiewicz, and John Wobus on keyboard, both of whom play with many area groups in a wide variety of styles. 

As Fancy That!, they play a mix of traditional and modern folk music, including a variety of Celtic, French Canadian and Americana tunes. The harp-like sound of the hammered dulcimer gives their music a unique sound which is always great to dance to!

Henry joins Curt on some of his CD's and videos. You can watch them playing at the Old Time Fiddlers Gathering a few years ago
