July 29: JoLaine Jones-Pokorney & The Gadabouts

JoLaine Jones-Pokorney & The Gadabouts

The Gadabouts are coming to town! Get your fix of old time music gone amok interspersed with zesty and beautiful cajun waltzes.

Our caller, JoLaine Jones-Pokorney will test your mettle as a contra dancer with surprising moves and patterns.

This is an advanced contra dance for experienced dancers willing to be challenged and to enhance their dance skills. In brief, 'experienced' means that you know contra moves without being taught. You know how to recover from a lapse, assist your partner and execute flourishes safely and on time. Advanced dances are 5th Sundays from 4-7 pm.

The Gadabouts are:
• David Massey - vocals, guitar, fiddle, piano
• Marietta Massey - percussion, vocals, banjo
• Bill Paine - mandolin, guitar, tenor guitar
• Kathie Aagaard - fiddle, vocals
