Come Dance and Sing!

The Down East Country Dance Festival starts tonight with a huge contradance at the Mt Ararat Middle Schools, Orion Performing Arts Center. Tonight will feature two bands & two callers... Frigate with John McIntire calling and Nightingale with Rachel Nevitt calling, and it all starts at 7:00pm. Tomorrow there are contradances, music and singing workshops, children's activities, food and lots more. See the web site for more details and a grid schedule of planned events.
fiddlehedz & friendz will be playing!
The jam group will be providing live music for a polka workshop in the morning. Richard & I plan to join the Wescustogo Ramblers mid-afternoon to play for the Family Dance, and yet another opportunity to play happens early evening when we join as members of the Festival Orchestra!
If you're interested in any sort of folk dancing (swing, contra, squares, polka, hambo, etc) or want to do some singing, or maybe are looking for a family activity to do with the kids, consider the Festival on Saturday... THE place to be!
