March 16th: Saturday: COMMUNITY CONTRA DANCE with music by Potatohead and calling by Logan Creighton, at the 1912 Center (Corner of 3rd St and Van Buren in Moscow). 7:30 PM.

What a wonderful way to spend the eve of st patricks day, dancing to the amazing irish music of Potatohead. Its been too long since our favorite local irish music band has played for one of our dances. With John Watkinson playing whistles and Lisa O’Leary on hammered dulcimer and bodhran, Paul Smith’s wonderful fiddle playing, and Dave Roon on flute and bouzouki, we’re in for a good time. I don’t have any idea at this moment who will be calling, but its sure to be a lively dance regardless. The caller, Logan Creighton, is new to us here in moscow. So come and check him out. He may have a number of dances to offer that are new to us. We’ll see you there!
