Next Contra Dance - Saturday, October 21, 2017

Our dance in October brings us the fabulous Wolf Moon Band from the Upstate of SC, with Jonathan Jansen calling.

Wolf Moon String Band is an ensemble of multi-talented musicians with many years of experience playing an exciting variety of traditional dance tunes. The band was formed on the first moon of the New Year, the wolf moon, several years ago, by Marshall Goers and Lucy Allen of Mauldin, South Carolina. This version of the band has Marshall on fiddle, Lucy on guitar, Brooke Lauer on banjo, and Briggs Hamilton on upright string bass.

Jonathan Jansen is one of our newest local callers and he has proven to be a very fun caller and dance choreographer.

It will be a great dance in October with Jonathan Jansen calling and The Wolf Moon String Band playing!
