☼ ☼ ☼ Contra Dance | Nelson | Lisa Sieverts ~ Caller | Music by Rodney Miller, Richard Backes, Liz Backes, Gordon Peery

Nelson Town Hall
Admission $8 / $6 seniors and students

Beginner’s Workshop 7:30

Lisa Sieverts is well known throughout New England for her excellent teaching. Dancers don’t even realize their being told what to do – her understated style allows dancers to have a lot of fun, learning the dances easily,  without realizing they are even being instructed. She has graciously stepped in for Mary DesRosiers who is unable to call due to (temporary) illness.

Stratospheric music provided by the incredible Rodney Miller (fiddle), and the inimitable Gordon Peery (piano). Flautist/whistler Sarah Bauhan was originally on the bill as well, but has had to cancel at the last minute due to a delayed return from Scotland. Fortunately we’ve been able to add multi-stringed instrumentalist Richard Backes, and Liz Backes on flute and whistle. The result will be a lovely orchestration and highly energized flow of music that will travel smoothly under the dancer’s feet.
