The Monadnock Folklore Society presents the Peterborough, NH First Saturday Contra Dance on July 2nd, featuring Lisa Sieverts calling with Randy Miller, Jeremiah McLane, and Roger Kahle.
Caller Lisa Sieverts appears regularly at the Nelson Monday Night contra dances and serves on the board of the Monadnock Folklore Society.
Randy Miller is a fiddler and artist based in Alstead, NH. His music book, “The New England Fiddler’s Repertoire,” written with Jack Perron, is considered the best contemporary collection of New England fiddle tunes.
The music of composer, accordionist, and pianist Jeremiah McLane is a unique blend of Franco-American, Celtic, jazz, and roots influenced music that is at once exuberant and introspective.
The dancing begins at 8:00 PM. The dance also hosts a free jam session for beginning and intermediate musicians at 6:30 PM and a workshop for new dancers at 7:30 PM.
Admission is $10 or $7 for students and seniors.
The dance takes place in the historic Town House in Peterborough, NH at 1 Grove Street. For more information call 603.762.0235 or visitwww.monadnockfolk.org. The Monadnock Folklore Society has presented contra dances and concerts of traditional music since 1982.
