April 2019 - Tony Mates calls squares with Atlas Stringband

Caller Tony Mates is multi talented!
The infamous Tony Mates of Seattle will be calling squares at Quimper Grange on Saturday, April 13 at 8PM. Tony Mates has called dances for decades, and in places far and near. A Seattle favorite and founding member of the Seattle Subversive Square Dance Society, Tony has called many dances at our Quimper Grange hall over the past 10 years, as well as Fiddle Tunes, Dare to be Square Events, and many others.

Knocking out tunes will be Atlas Stringband, also from Seattle. Atlas has been playing together since the 2006 Festival of American Fiddle Tunes in Port Townsend, WA where they jammed together for hours and days on end, wallowing in the energy and spirit of the music. Their rollicking dance tunes and hard driving rhythms come from the 1920s, 30s and 40s, the golden era of Old-Time music. The current lineup includes David Parker (fiddle), Morgan John (banjo), Robert Hinrix (bass), and Tom Collicott (guitar). If we are in luck, we may get to hear some of their vocals in between dance tunes.

All dances are taught. All experience levels are welcome and encouraged. This is a family friendly event (no alcohol). Quimper Grange is located at 1219 Corona in Port Townsend. Admission is $5 if you arrive on bike or foot or bring a non disposable water bottle; $7 for car drivers; 16 and under is free. Bring yourself, a special friend, the family, or the whole tribe. Come at 7 and jam with the band. For more information, call Dave Thielk at 360-602-1270.
