Pete's Posse is Pete Sutherland on fiddle, piano, banjo and vocals, Oliver Scanlon on fiddle, mandolin, dobro, foot percussion and vocals and Tristan Henderson on guitars, mandolin, jaw harp, bodhran, foot percussion and vocals.
Yes, folks, two fiddles. And sometimes vocals. And lots of beautiful foot work. They are hot shit.
Mary Wesley is our caller for the evening. She's a beacon of the national dance community, leading and organizing contra, morris, square, and community dances. Among so many other things, she's a founder of the Mad Robin Callers Collective in Vermont and works wit the Country Dance and Song Society on youth projects.
Join us for drinks and tapas after the dance at Local 188, just west of Longfellow Square on Congress Street. All ages welcome. This generous sponsor has designed a snack menu just for us. :)
DIRECTIONS AND PARKING:
Directions may be found here: www.statestreetchurch.org/directions.html
Parking is on-street in the State Street/West End neighborhood. In Portland, parking on Thursdays after 6pm is free. We recommend saving a bit of time to find spots, as we've found contra dancers are taking them all on Thursday nights. ;)
