Washington, DC area caller Bob Isaacs comes north for a great night of dancing and tunes by Jessie Gagne Hall, fiddle, accompanied by Gordon Peery, piano.

Hailing from New Jersey, caller Bob Isaacs is well known for his ability to invent creative dances while remaining true to the traditional roots of contra dancing. Fiddler Jessie Gagne-Hall hails from Manchester, NH and has been strongly influenced by her years in Maine’s lively fiddle scene. Her playing is relaxed yet lively, and her repertoire of tunes is immense for such a young player. Gordon Peery of Nelson can’t shake his fame as the piano player who can single-handedly take a dance from mundane to marvelous, combining rock solid rhythm with myriad jazz influences.
