December 21st: Saturday: COMMUNITY CONTRA DANCE with music by Potatohead and calling by Joseph Erhard-Hudson,  at the 1912 Center (Corner of 3rd St and Van Buren in Moscow). 7:30 PM.

 

Any time is a great time to be dancing to our favorite local irish music group, Potatohead, but to be dancing to Potatohead on winter solstice is even more special. Its been way too long since this band has played for one of our dances. This will be the perfect way to warm up our winter, and its longest night. With John Watkinson and Lisa O’Leary on whistles and hammered dulcimer, respectively, Paul Smith’s wonderful fiddle playing, and Dave Roon on flute and bouzouki, we’re in for a good time. And could we dare ask for more... Joseph Erhard-Hudson says that he'll call for us! Sure to be a great night of dancing! We’ll see you there!
