Cooperstown May Contradance
May 3 @ 7:30 pm
Our May contradance will have music by Men in Black and Ted Crane calling. Men in Black is made up of Robert Calandresa on accordion, John Potocnik on fiddle and Tom Ives playing bass. The band was organized by Calandresa a few years ago and their strong and energetic playing reflects their wide variety of musical backgrounds and experience, whether they’re playing Celtic or French Canadian styles or adding in Old-time country harmonies.
Ted Crane has been calling and organizing contradances for more than 40 years, combining a dry New England style with patter, song and occasionally percussion on his bodhran. Based in Ithaca, he leads dances at festivals and fairs, Civil War reenactments, and community dances throughout the northeast and Atlantic coast.
No dance parneror experienceis needed sincealldances are taught.
Suggested donation adults $8, students and teens $4, under 12 free.
