April 7th Contrdance


We're hoping that spring will be here for our contradance on Friday April 7th..  Music will be by Tom Wadsworth and Ed Lowman and the caller will be Garry Aney.

Guitarist Tom Wadsworth has been playing dances since his twenties, appearing throughout the Hudson River Valley, Capitol, Catskill and Adirondack regions. He is the lead member of several bands including his own Skeleton Band and also plays mandolin, tin whistle, and uilleann pipes.
Wadsworth will be joined by Ed Lowman on fiddle. As a long-time musician, Lowman is also an accomplished bass, guitar, and mandolin player who sings lead and backing vocals as well.

Garry Aney, a frequent caller at our dances, combines his love of historical interpretation with modern influences, creating an interesting balance of contemporary and traditional contradances. He calls dances from as far back as the Revolutionary War era, and as up-to-date as modern twenty-first century dances.

Garry's repertoire, in combination with the band's Americana tunes, should provide a unique evening of dance for everyone.

The dance begins at 7:30, but if you're a beginner, you can come at 7:15 when we'll have a short introduction to some basic contradance steps.

Hope to see you on the 7th!
