Oct. 5 Potluck Poachers with Eric Harris

Potluck Poachers

There's Magic in the Music with a whistling author, a multi-instrumentalist and the rest of the banjo-pickin, pot-licken, bass thumpin crew from the Sunny Melrose Contra. Bringing their old-time, country tunes with a touch of zest and spirit, the Potluck Poachers are cooking up a dance to remember.

Calling and devotedly carrying the contra flame, Eric Harris expects to be as happy calling for us as we are to see him in the caller's spot.

October 18: 'Wind that Shakes the Barley' with caller Hilton Baxter

Autumn winds a-blowin thru the fields unleash rhythm with melodies that follow in natural harmony. Echoing, amplifying and multiplying nature's cadence, Wind that Shakes the Barley, with the unique melody of hammered dulcimer will enchant dancers this October dance.

Our caller, Hilton Baxter, having called for touring bands such as Great Bear Trio brings his easy-going style to Gainesville. A long-time caller from upstate NY, he "will get everyone moving to the music quickly and with confidence".
