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 from Spokane will be calling. Nora is one of the most experienced callers in the area. And she’s wonderful with newer dancers, so plan to drag some friends along to join in the fun! There’ll be some wonderful dancing!

 

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