March 3: Diane Silver and Wind That Shakes The Barley

Diane Silver & Diane Silver and Wind That Shakes the Barley

Diane Silver is one of Asheville’s most sought-after dance callers. She has been a die-hard contra dancer, swing dancer, and kitchen flat-footer for over twenty years. With a penchant for hot modern contras and a few FUN squares, she loves sharing high-energy dancing that allows everyone to “play” with the band. Highly acclaimed for her clear, efficient teaching and calling, creative medleys, great positive energy, and spirit of community building, Diane provides a sizzling evening of dance in a friendly, welcoming tone.

Our great band for this event is Wind That Shakes The Barley:
• Bill Dudley - guitar
• Kathie Aagaard - fiddle
• Sarah Mitchell - flute, hammered dulcimer, penny whistle, percussion
