Contra Dance at Wesleyan Tonight
If you like traditional folk music, and dance, and you haven't made it to one of these events yet, shame on you.
The young men and women of Folk Revival Initiative have proven that folk musics have an evergreen quality which continues to attract generation after generation of enthusiastic listeners and performers.
These dances encourage newcomers, since for so many of the students this is a first attempt at organized dancing.
Tonight's dance features music by Ethan Hazard-Watkins, Anna Patton and Owen Marshall with calling by Rebecca Lay.
Kudos to Emily Troll for being a major force behind keeping trad music alive at Wesleyan.
