Mary is one of the founding members of the Mad Robin Caller’s Collective in Burlington, VT, a group is dedicated to supporting young callers as they learn the contradance tradition. She is also an active board member of Young Tradition Vermont, a non-profit fostering youth involvement in traditional dance and music.
Dr. Carey Bluhm of Fitzwilliam mixes southern and northern fiddling styles with equal facility. Classically-trained saxophonist Max Nunnemaker will alternate between the horn and fretless bass, while Nelson’s own Gordon Peery provides piano accompaniment.
Dancing begins at 8:00 PM. Beginners and singles are welcome — there is a short orientation before the dance for early arrivals — and all dances are taught throughout the evening. Admission is $8, $6 for senior citizens and students. For more information call 603.762.0235 or visit http://www.monadnockfolk.org. The Monadnock Folklore Society has presented contradances and concerts of traditional music since 1982.
