February 3rd Contradance

Our February contradance will have Robby Poulette calling and music by Eleemosynary.

Robby got interested in calling while at Hartwick College and was coached by Peter Blue.
Since he began, he has performed at many events including dances at Pine Lake and leading the Renaissance Fair dance held by the the Edmeston Home Schoolers.

Eleemosynary is a band led by Peter Blue on accordion and nyckleharpa. He is joined Carol Mandigo on guitar and Danny Birnbaum playing bass. They play traditional tunes and original compositions by Peter.
They have all played locally for many years and are members of several other bands as well as playing at local jam sessions. Eleemosynary grew out of those sessions and a desire to play together for dancing. 

Eleemosynary means "of, pertaining to, or dependent upon charity." Accordingly a portion of the band's income at each performance is donated to local charities.
So join us on the 3rd for a fun night of music and dancing!
And remember, we're starting at 7:30 now.
