Thank you for planning to come out and dance at the TopHill Music Contradance series night. We think that is a brilliant idea!

In case you are wondering who else will be there, here is the scoop:

Tracy Scott will return to the Grange with her fabulous fiddle
Peter Siegel will join her on mandolin or guitar
and Jesse Ball will round out the trio playing guitar, or piano or accordion

and honestly almost anything could happen. Best to be present.

Peter Stix will cross the river to call for you bringing some NY dances this way.

See you at the dance hall!
