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.
