Slow Jam coming just this next Saturday! and... Our first dance back in the 1912 Community Center this month after a summer of fun!  Think about inviting friends this month, as our caller Nora is a wizard at making newcomers comfortable!

 

September 8th and 22nd -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.

 

 

September 15th: Saturday: COMMUNITY CONTRA DANCE with music by the River City Ramblers and calling by Nora Scott, at the 1912 Center (Corner of 3rd St and Van Buren in Moscow). 7:30 PM.

 

The River City Ramblers have a been a mainstay at contra dances on the Palouse for many a year. That's because they're simply wonderful. This Spokane old-time string band features fiddler Judy Lungren, Bill Siems on mandolin, Dawn Holladay on guitar and Michael Gifford holding down the low end on bass. Lively dance music for contras is guaranteed. And Nora Scott will be calling, so what more could you ask for. Add in an awesome band, and hopefully some new dancers now that school is back in, and we’ll have a wonderful time. So plan to drag some friends along to join in the fun! Back in the lovely 1912 Center!
