(Wolfeboro, NH) The Community Contra Dance Series hosted by Global Awareness Local Action (G.A.L.A.) kicks off 2019 on Saturday, January 26th, at the Wolfeboro Town Hall’s “Great Hall”. Dances
The headline band for January’s dance is Brier Hill Band. Brier Hill has been playing local farmer’s markets and dances in the Wolfeboro/Ossipee area for the last six years. Named for one of the roads in Canaan Valley where they started playing, the band serves up standard New England dance tunes drawn from the French Canadian and British fiddle traditions that make up most of the contra dance repertoire. Brier Hill is comprised of Lane and Scott Evans, Patrick O’Hagin, Michael Haeger and Tim Morrison. Eric Rolnick will be calling the dance with the Brier Hill.
Dance admission fees are as follows: $8.00 for adults, $5.00 for 6yr-18yr olds, and 5yr and under free. Anyone experiencing financial hardship is invited to pay what they can and no one will be turned away for financial reasons. In an effort to protect the wood floor in the Great Hall participants are encouraged to bring an extra pair of shoes for dancing that do not have a black sole. G.A.L.A. is also looking to fill a few volunteer shifts for the dances this year if you are interested.
