SHOWING ALL EVENTS with title: 3rd Saturday Contra Dance
Sat Jan 20, 20183rd Saturday Contra Dance  

Barbara Stewart comes to the rescue, replacing caller Jonathan Southard, frustrated by the closing of Highway 101 southbound from Santa Barbara. Barbara's classic collection of dances will match the sweet, strong sound of "Rhythm Method." Like Barbara & Jonathan, the band is keenly attentive to the dancers and crafts medleys to take couples (and the whole hall!) on a musical journey, each tune offering rich moods & inspirations, each tune building to the delights & surprises of the next. Briana Bandy's fiddling blends the pure tone of classical training with infectious melodies of ever-evolving folk tradition. Steve Shapiro (banjo, mandolin, & fiddle) and Emil Olguin (guitar) give the downbeat and the heart-beat of the music, a pulse that energizes from start to finish.

Sat Jun 16, 20183rd Saturday Contra Dance  

Keiko Cadby, fiddler best known till now by English Country Dancers, combines with two of "The Syncopaths," Jeff Spero on keyboards and Christa Burch on bodhran and vocals, to create music for contra that is ethereal, elegant, tantalizingly mysterious. A wonderfully evocative blend that is rich in possibilities. Caller Jacqui Grennan, known both locally & nationally, deserves our thanks for drawing attention to a trio we hope will inspire contra dancers for a long time to come.
