A collision of classical strings and African rhythms is just half of the musical storm blowing your way when Category 5 returns to Gainesville. The storm force builds with their high energy jigs and reels - predictions are for few dry dancers on the floor.
Anchoring the tempest is our caller, Vicki Morrison, who advocates contra dancing as the answer to world peace.
Category 5 is: Sarah Mitchell on flute, hammered dulcimer, percussion, Kathie Aagaard (of the Florida Orchestra) on fiddle, John McEwen - Irish banjo, tenor guitar, percussion, David Massey - keyboard.
Come dance Sunday 4-7 pm, at the Thelma Boltin Center 516 NE 2nd Ave, Gainesville, FL 32601. $8/$5Students. Beginners' lesson at 3:30.
If you snack, bring one to share and a water bottle to save the planet. A babysitter is available. Parking is in the lot across the street, behind the building and marked spaces on adjacent streets.
