The Euphemists are not your ordinary contra dance band. Yes, they have fiddle and piano (Alan Snyder and Dave Goldman) and whistle and and guitar (Norman Farrell and Jerry Nelson). Yes, they play familiar Celtic, Québécois, and old-time tunes. But they also have horns! With Norman and Jerry on saxophone and clarinet and Kaye Blesener on trombone, high energy is the result! You'll hear lively ragtime era tunes, hints of that big band sound when you least expect it, horn riffs playing off the fiddle, and old-time tunes being introduced to brass -- it's a marriage made in heaven.
The caller will be using non-traditional role terminology. Larks & Robins will be used throughout the dance.
Potluck will be at 5:30 pm at a contra dancer's home - NOT at the dance venue.
