Wake Up Robin
Coming from the East Coast, West Coast and down south, this young group has hatched onto the Contra scene on fire. With a variety of musical styles, this group will reach into your soul, and move your feet, as you wath your body move on it’s own. So come and let this group introduce you to joyful harmonies, raw energy, and that magical feeling that got you (or will get you) involved in this crazy life.
Coming from Ashville, NC, Beth is a teacher of Traditional American Dance specializing in calling Square and Contra Dances. She makes every dance fun and exciting with her smooth sireness voice and contagious enthusiasm.
Rare Priviledge is made up of Mara Terres on fiddle and Amy McFarland on piano. Their music has often been described as “way more sound that we ever thought two instruments could make.” Devotion to their individual instruments, a sense of innovation and a deep love and respect for the living tradition of folk music and dance combine to give their music life.
What can I say, this man has it all. He’s a caller with a sense of humor and a love of cats. He’s not just a caller, he’s a dancer, and when he hits the dance floor, ladies look out! Beau is known for his great teaching style, call of dances and love of medleys.
