Thin Air with Joy Greenwolfe
Joy Greenwolfe out of Durham, NC will be bringing her sense of artistry and clear teaching to Grove Haus while Thin Air provides the musical joy.
About Thin Air: “Dianna Davis brings her improvisational ensemble for the first time to Indy Contra. Thin Air creates music out of “thin air”. All four musicians, Dianna Davis, Pam Blevins Hinkle, Elizabeth Efroymson-Brooks, and Sally Childs-Helton are staples on the Indy music scene and will bring a great new sound to Indy Contra.”
Joy will be leading a beginner caller’s workshop before the dance starting at 6:30 PM at Grove Haus.
