Caller Dave Thielk plays
for his hens
Quimper Grange Square Dance and Social. Rats gone to rest is a high-energy square dance band including long time friends Joel Brown and Devin Forest-Hines.  Joel and Devin are musical collaborators who arrived into traditional Old time music through punk music. Rats Gone to Rest channels the lawless energy and spirit of late night fiddle festivals, and rogue square dances.  Calling that night will be Dave Thielk with a great selection of old dances, visiting squares, circles and mixers.  Dave's approach to traditional squares is erase the boundary between dancer, band and caller.  Come prepared for an evening of frivolity, rhythm and rockin'.
