April 2017 - Amy Hofer and Anticipation at the April Square Dance

April 5th, 7-9 Old Time Jam, Led by Tony Goldenberg


Tony will start the jam teaching “Little Gal’ll Fool Ya”, a Roan Mountain Hilltoppers tune in the key of D and switching to the key of A and may play something in G. For those of us familiar with Tony’s excellent southern fiddling style this will be a real treat; rhythm, tone, cool tunes. What more could you ask for?


Players of all levels are welcome. $1 -$2 donation to help pay for heat. Bringing snacks to share is encouraged. Doors open at 6:45. Questions? Call Marla at 360-385-6924.

Portland caller Amy Hofer, along with the the one night stand band, The Anticipations, are coming to Quimper Grange on April 22nd at 8 PM.  This is Amy's third visit to Quimper Grange. If you haven't danced squares with Amy, you haven't danced. The Anticipations include the musical and remarkable Bruce Reid (fiddle) and Bonnie Zahnow (guitar) from Seattle, and the vivacious and energetic Port Townsender, Jeanie Murphy (banjo).  Rumor has it that other musicians may join the band during the evening.
