Feb 18: The Dunehoppers & Alice Raibourn

Feb 18th 2017: The Dunehoppers & Alice Raibourn

Saint Augustine jumps with history - from it's Spanish founding to an early winter retreat to modern times as the home of the famed and esteemed Dunehoppers. With award wining fiddling and equally engaging rhythm, percussion and even more strings, their melodic contra will keep you on your feet.

On your feet, says Alice from Orlando, with an encore performance in the callers spot, and a retinue of different dances. Ms. Raibourn's calling lineage boasts history of it's own.

The Dunehoppers hail from Jacksonville. They are:
* Mac Benford - banjo
* Kathy Zemanek - banjo & bass
* Bob Parsons - mandolin, fiddle & bass
* Mike Elias - guitar
* Allen Hood - fiddle
