April 14th and 28th -Saturdays: SLOW JAMS (Second and fourth Saturdays) from 1-3 PM 314 East Second St. attic (up the long driveway and up the back stairs.) For any interested folk musicians All experience levels welcome, including raw beginners. We may go over a piece more than once.  Bring music or chords if you have them and share a little of what you are working on. There will not be an audience. We just go round in a circle picking a favorite tune, and others try to join in. Perfection not even considered! Come join us.

 

 

April 21st: Saturday: COMMUNITY CONTRA DANCE with music by Paul Smith and Alex Roberts and calling by Nora Scott, at the 1912 Center (Corner of 3rd St and Van Buren in Moscow). 7:30 PM.

 

This is a new band combo for us, but we're eagerly looking forward to hearing them. Paul Smith is familiar to all of you from his work over many years with the local Irish music band, Potatohead and his groovy gourd banjo album that he released about a year ago. With Alex Roberts providing back up on guitar we're in for a lively evening of music and dancing! And, of course, we're thrilled to have Nora Scott return to call for us. It’s spring, lets dance!

 

Beginner? No problem- Arrive at 7:30 and there are free lessons.

 

No Partner? No worry. There are lots of dancers - many would like to dance with you. All dances are taught. Singles, families & beginners are always welcome.

 

Free dance lessons at 7:30, 8-10:30 Dance Admission: $6 for members, $8 for non-members and new dancers get in for $5
