March 2nd Contradance


After our last 2 dances were effected by this crazy winter, 
we're looking forward to better weather for our dance on Friday March 2nd!
The band will be Eleemosynary and the caller will be Ed Bugel.

Eleemosynary is a band, made up of Peter Blue on nyckelharpa and button accordion, Carol Mandigo on guitar, and Danny Birnbaum on bass. Each of them play in several other bands as well as being regulars at local music sessions. Eleemosynary plays traditional and new contra dance music with an emphasis on tunes composed by Peter. 

Ed is a local caller from Oneonta and a longtime contradancer. He calls a mixture of traditional and contemporary contradances, some of his own devising, and has a clear and friendly teaching style which is fun for dancers of all skill levels, whether beginner or experienced.

We start dancing at 7:30 but if you are a beginner, come at 7:15 and Robby will give an introduction to some basic steps.

Hope to see you this month!
