Hi folks,

I'm afraid we're in limbo with our events this month, and for some unknown period of time.  You know what that is about.... Its doubtful that the 1912 will open again before the April dance.     We miss you all!       Take care and watch the sky... our part of the country has such a  lovely and dramatic sky,... perhaps the dance of the wind and clouds will comfort us for a little while till we meet again.

April 11th and 25th -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 18th: 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.

 

In all likelihood, the 1912 will remain closed this month, so no dance. We'll definitely miss dancing to Nora's calling and the music of Paul and Alex. We'll keep you posted as time goes on. Hopefully, we'll be dancing again soon.
