hi folks,


here are the pfs calendar items for july 2020. at this point its looking like slow jam will be it again, and a small group has been gathering regularly. Tomorrow again will be slow jam. The Kray van Kirk concert has been rescheduled for next summer, and at present its not looking likely for a dance, at this time, as bands and callers are feeling disinclined to do a dance. This whole set of events makes me sad... we miss you all!


-David, Roberta and Tim



July 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.



July 11: Saturday: House Concert with Kray Van Kirk in the Attic at 314 East 2nd Street, Moscow. Rescheduled for July 10th 2021.


July 18th: Saturday: COMMUNITY CONTRA DANCE with music by a groovy band and calling by somebody cool, at the Old Blaine Schoolhouse (Corner of Eid and Blaine Roads). Potluck dinner 6:30, dancing at 7:30 PM.


PENDING... This would be our first dance of the summer out at the lovely Old Blaine Schoolhouse. One of our favorite places to dance. We'll be asking around again to see if our dancers are ready to start dancing again. We're not sure yet who will be playing and calling, but i'm sure that whoever it is, we'll have a great time. Stay tuned. We'll let you know where things stand when we figure it out. Perhaps, we'll see you there!


You can find a map to the schoolhouse at our website,, or in one of our newsletters in the bin on the Moscow Coop bulletin board.
