August 18, 2008 at 12:56 PMOn Friday (hurra, a holiday in the part of Bavaria where I work) I went to see my old caller buddy Thomas to rehearse for the 57th Bavarian Festival. Thomas plays the guitar in a church band and - apart from being an accomplished caller - he is a multi-instrumentalist. He plays guitar, ukulele, mandolin, accordeon, piano, drums, ... and has come up with the idea that we will offer an introduction to contra dancing with live music.
For me, this will be an exciting new experience, since I have never played in a contra or square dance band before. Playing for dancers is a lot of fun, but I have only done it for standard dancers, never for my own favorite dance form.
