Contra dancing is fun and easy to learn, and we'll promote monthly dances for people ages 13+. No experience necessary, as there will be a tutorial at the start of the dance, and all dances are practiced before starting.
We will also have monthly concerts featuring some of the best acoustic music in Savannah. Both local and touring artists will be featured, and there are opportunities to get more involved for those who are interested.
A new acoustic duo will open the show: MaryAnn Pridgen and Kailey Roberts featuring acoustic covers and Kailey's original songs with Kailey on flute and MaryAnn on guitar. The second set will be performed by Bound and Determined - 40th anniversary reunion show with John Powers, Week Webb, Al Harris, and Bill Jones. B&D will bring you their take on eclectic acoustic music with bluegrass roots. Coffee and home-baked goods for sale at rear of hall.
$9 or $6 for SFMS members, Joyce Murlless and Bob Beattie will teach and prompt the dancing. Glow in the Dark String Band will play tunes in ‘old time music style’. Come join in the fun of contra and squares and a couple of waltzes.
