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.

The Potluck Poachers are Eleta (Lea) Sucsy on penny whistle, Pete Sucsy on banjo and guitar, Karan Newman on mandolin and whatever, Chuck Spitzner on bass and Pat Stevens on guitar and banjo.

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.
