Music is led by Sue Anderson and International Folk Sounds.
Bring your instrument and a music stand (one can be provided if you forget yours). Music will be provided. (Bb music is available for nearly every tune.)
Music is international folk dance music including commonly danced tunes such as Zemer Atik, Bufčansko, Karagouna, Bavno Oro, and Kortanc.
If you can read music and have an instrument come on out. The evening is free for musicians and the dancers are always an appreciative audience.
