Tunes, tunes, and more tunes, led by Art Peterson. The same tunes will all be played for the evening contra dance with Peter Persoff on piano and Laurie Miller on bass. There won’t be time to try every one of them, but good practice winging it will be had by all. Keep that rhythm. Bring an instrument.
Art has played in many ensembles over the years, one of which actually “made it to the top”; the rest are more down to earth. You can often find him at the Starry Plough in Berkeley and other venues.
Our Festival Contra Dance Band will include folks from the afternoon workshop and a cavalcade of excellent callers!
