Roots Contra JAM!

NEW START TIME! Every 4th Sunday Laura Lengnick and Nic Coker lead Asheville’s only traditional New England social dance musicians jam!  SLOW JAM from 6 to 7, then DANCE TEMPO JAM from 7 to 9.  Join us to have some fun playing traditional fiddle tunes “close to the floor” at this gathering devoted to the art of playing for social dance.  We’ll explore the traditional dance music of New England through a diversity of dance forms, including set dances – triplets, contra, square, circle, English country, and play party – and partner dances such as waltz, hambo, schottis and polka. Listeners and dancers welcome!  Special invited guests will share dance playing tips and teach a favorite tune from time to time.
