Contra Dance with Yoyo Zhou and The Killarney Boys

This should be a great dance. The Killarney Boys will give you an evening of dazzling Celtic fiddle and banjo, played by Chris Knepper and Dave Cory respectively. Both known for great melody and improvisation, you can expect the two to egg each other on all night. Meanwhile, John Ward's groovy guitar playing will hold everything together with beats that you just can't help but want to boogie to.

Yoyo, who learned to call at the Google Contra Dance, represents the younger generation of dancers, and we're thrilled that he's taken up calling.

You'll want to listen, but you can't help dance.

WHERE: St. Paul's Presbyterian Church,[masked]rd Ave (corner of 43rd & Judah) in San Francisco.
TIME: 8p-11p (FREE beginner/newcomer lesson at 7:30p)
BAND: The Killarney Boys (Chris Knepper, Dave Cory, John Ward)
CALLER: Yoyo Zhou
PRICES: $8 BACDS members ($10 for non-members), $5 students or low-income or pay what you can
