Oct 7: Dana Parkinson and Category Five

Dana-Parkinson and Category Five

Dana Parkinson will be calling to the music of Category Five. So get ready for some rip-snorting good music and dance!

Dana Parkinson started contra dancing in 2009 with the Tampa Friends of Old-Time Dance. Through support from her local community and inspiration from dancing at dozens of dance weekends, Dana soon found herself at a Contra Calling Workshop with Cis Hinkle. In no time at all she was calling local dances.

Nov 29th Advanced Contra: Category Five + Joey Norton

Category Five is: • Sarah Mitchell on flute, hammered dulcimer, and percussion; • Kathie Aagaard on fiddle; • John McEwen on Irish banjo, tenor guitar, percussion; and • David Massey on keyboard.

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 - just in time to dance off a day of feasting.

Anchoring the tempest is our caller, Joey Norton.

Category Five is:
• Sarah Mitchell on flute, hammered dulcimer, and percussion;

Category 5 and Eric Harris

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 - a force to be reckoned with in air conditioned comfort.

Stirring up a storm in the caller's corner is Eric Harris, taking a turn from his other gig at Sea Life Orlando - spreading cheer and enthusiasm across the state.
