Contra Dance with The Raggedy Annes, Erik Hoffman calling.

Anne Goess and Andy Eggleston team up on exceptionally un-raggedy fiddles with Charlie Hancock's uplifting piano in The Raggedy Annes.  Andy pulls from her experience as a bluegrass fiddler, while Anne brings her experience in Irish music, and the two join in the middle with beautiful harmonies and a lovely selection of dance tunes.  As always, Charlie plays to the dancers and keeps the energy high.

Erik Hoffman's the caller, and it's hard to not want to get up and dance to his easy going, gregarious and inclusive style.
