The Nelson Contra Dance on Saturday, July 12th, features the calling of Adina Gordon and the music of Paradocs.
Adina Gordon lives in Asheville, North Carolina, where she is active in the local contra dance community and also travels extensively around the country to call for dances and festivals.
Paradocs consists of local musicians Carey Bluhm on fiddle and Larry Siegel on piano, and is so named because both musicians have PhD degrees! Carey is a psychologist from Fitzwilliam, NH. Larry is a well-known composer whose new work “Kaddish” recently premiered at Keene State College. In addition, as artistic director and founder of Tricinium, Ltd. and director of The Verbatim Project, he has helped towns and organizations create and perform original works of musical theater for more than twelve years.
The Nelson dance opens with a beginner’s workshop at 7:30, and dancing starts at 8:00. All dances are taught throughout the evening.
