Come warm yourself with good dancing and community cheer this Saturday, February 8, from 8-11 pm. Expect a lovely evening of contras, squares, and circle dances to live music by the Gretchen & The F-Holes with calling by Andrea Nettleton.
Andrea Nettleton is a new caller who is making a name for herself at dances throughout the region including Atlanta, Chattanooga and River Falls.
Gretchen and the F Holes are a local group who play regionally as well as for many of our Tuesday night dances. They make good use of our baby grand piano! (F holes refer to the two holes shaped like fancy F’s on the top of a violin.)
*Gretchen Wurth – piano
*Mike Robinson and Margie McDonald – fiddles
Beginners, singles and couples welcome.
Ages 12-18: $4.00
