The Smoky Hollow String String Band is droppin' in from Tallahassee. Inspired by the the mountains, hollers and flat-lands of bygone days, three veteran musicians bring you hard drivin', no holds barred traditional music for an evening of joyous and sprightly dancing.
Vicki Morrison, a contra dancer for eight years, and caller for five, aims for a joyful dance experience for both new and experienced dancers. She calls dances that flow well and are fun for everyone.
The Smoky Hollow String Band is Lindsey Smith on fiddle, Roger Eudy on guitar, and John Flynn on banjo. Their music inspired by "the mountains of North Carolina, the hollers of Missouri and the flat-lands of Florida" - places they once called home.
