Details & registration are on our GMB 2014 page. Info about our location, Zion EUCC, is here. Here’s Dana Parkinson calling to the Mean Lids:
Louisville sends us a carload of talent for our October 7th dance! Susan Moffett will call to music by Tom Cunningham & Ben Andrews: Tom plays fiddle, guitar, and mandolin with bands like the Coffee Zombies & Hot Club of Derbytown. Ben plays guitar with groups like Gyps-y DeVille.
On September 23 we feature the Emily Ann Thompson band, with “open calling” led by Adam Nichols. We welcome new and novice callers to give it a try, and experienced callers to do just one or two and spend the rest of the evening dancing! Please contact Adam Nichols to get on the schedule; or at least arrive early.
On September 16 we feature music by Convolution (“only” Ben Smith and Dianna Davis, who often have third musician join in — we miss you Vickie!). Bradley Smith and Michelle Fulton share the evening’s calling.
