Sep 14 - Cascade Crossing w/ William Watson
Cascade Crossing is one of the most sought-after contra dance bands in the Pacific Northwest. With Lori Prime on fiddle, mandolin and banjo; Sarah Goss on oboe, whistles, and bass; Carl Thor on piano, hammered dulcimer, and mandolin; and Rich Goss on guitar and percussion, Cascade Crossing is known for high energy music, an exciting variety of instrumentation, and intensely creative arrangements.
William Watson, a resident of Portland, OR, danced his first contra in 1989 and began calling in Texas in 1992. William’s extensive experience and soothing voice project a calm confidence. His vigilant and thoughtful dance programming ensures a variety of figures, transitions, and sequences to entertain and support new dancers while offering the occasional challenge for the more advanced.
