The Monadnock Folklore Society presents the Peterborough, NH First Saturday Contra Dance on November 3rd, featuring Tod Whittemore calling with Max Newman and Ed Wallace.

Caller Tod Whittemore has been calling dances for forty years, having been lucky enough to begin his career at the time when famous callers Ralph Page and Duke Miller were still active in the Monadnock Region. Tod has called dances all over the world, and is known for his humor, energy, and infectious love of dancing.

Musician Max Newman originally hails from Alaska. He recently finished a term as the Youth Projects Intern at the Country Dance & Song Society. He also serves on the committee for the yearly Youth Dance weekend where he is responsible for organizing the weekend’s volunteers. He is joined by Ed Wallace on fiddle.

The dancing begins at 8:00 PM, with an optional introductory workshop beforehand. Admission is $8 or $6 for students and seniors. The dance takes place in the historic Town House in Peterborough, NH at 1 Grove Street. For more information call 603.762.0235.
