Nelson Monday Night
Contact: Lisa Sieverts 603-762-0235

Nelson Town Hall 6:00 – 7:00, before the Nelson Monday night dance. Usually a dozen or so folks, playing reels, jigs, and waltzes, at half to three-quarter speed. Round robin – each attendee gets to pick a tune. There is a designated piano player to provide a solid foundation, but all other instruments welcome. Many tunes are also played out of the Portland Collection and the New England Fiddler’s Repertoire.
