May 2014 - Squares with Peckin' Out Dough and Dave Thielk; Contras with the Rose Street Ramblers with Nan Evans

Caller Nan Evans
The Rose Street Ramblers

Lots of good dance things happening in May.  For starters, the Rose Street Ramblers are playing tunes for contra dancer caller Nan Evans on May 10th.  Sure to be a fun spring dance.  The Rose Street Ramblers, a local band,  have been playing dances together for 4 years, but collectively have about 75 years of dance playing behind them.  And they play like they have another 75 years to go.  For this dance they are thinking C tunes, a singing waltz and some hard rocking southern tunes, among others.

Caller Dave Thielk
One week later, on May 17th, during the heat of Rhody Fest, Pecking out Dough will team up with caller Dave Thielk for a rocking good old time square dance.  Peckin' Out Dough hails from Seattle, and represents square dance playing at its finest.  Fiddler Tony Mates has been involved with old time music and dance for decades, is a founding member of the Seattle Square Dance Society, and is a feared and revered dance caller in his own right!  For a short preview of Peckin' Out Dough's square dance music groove, check out this video.

Both the contra and square dances start at 7:30.  All dances taught and the events are family friendly.  Beginners and experienced dancers welcome.  Come alone, with a partner or with a gaggle of geese.  There is something for everyone.  If you can walk, you can dance.  And, if you want, you can just sit an listen to the music.  Come over to the grange and check out our wonderful dance community  Dancers are encouraged to bring easy snacks to share and their own personal water bottle.  Contra dances are $6.00 and squares are $5.00 with 16 and under free.  Email me for work trades at square dances.
