George Marshall



Massachusetts US


George Marshall, from Massachusetts, was introduced to square and contra dancing in the early seventies. While attending college in Amherst, he founded a contra-dance band, Swallowtail, with some fellow students and began calling and playing for dances. Now a full-time musician/caller/dance teacher, George tours nationally throughout the year with Wild Asparagus. He also plays concertina and bodhran. While most of the time he can be found calling/playing with Wild Asparagus or Swallowtail, George also calls occasionally with the Perpetual e-Motion and the Clayfoot Strutters. George's specialty is teaching and calling the New England style contra dances he has collected throughout the country. He is renowned for his knack of matching music to dance and for his smooth, concise teaching and presentation.
