Kumquats-At-Large & Sam Rotenberg

Closing out the contra year, our ever-popular "old acquaintances", Kumquats at Large will play a dance not likely to be forgotten! Let's join together in dancing out 2014.

Our caller, Sam Rotenberg, is taking a break from calling In Philly and various other frozen locales to warm up a dance for us. Having also called at NEFFA and Pinewoods and being an English Country dancer, an interesting dance is sure to be afoot.
