December 9th and 23rd -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.
December 16th: Saturday: CONTRA DANCE with music by Loose Palouse and calling by Joseph Erhard-Hudson, at the 1912 Center (Corner of 3rd St and Van Buren in Moscow). 7:30 PM.
We have the perfect way to warm up a frosty wintry evening, Contra dancing to the lively music of Loose Palouse and the calling of Joseph Erhard-Hudson. Our band features the expert hammered dulcimer playing of Lawrence Huntley, Rita McAdoo's delightful fiddling, the guitar and bouzouki playing of David Christian and Daniel Green holding down the low end on bass. Joseph Erhard-Hudson will bring his box of magic dances. He's one of our favorite and most experienced callers. Remember how much fun we had dancing to these folks at the pie dance this past summer? What fun! We'll see you there!
In keeping with the times, masks and vaccines are optional. At this time few are wearing masks on our dance floor, and we love to see you if you are healthy, mask or no mask. If you are sick, or have been recently, or have potentially vulnerable folks at home, we would urge you to avoid coming to the dance. As we trust you know, it is quite possible Covid can be at any close public event such as this one.
Beginner? No problem- Arrive at 7:30 and there are free lessons.
