Hands Four Dancers is thrilled to host veteran Pioneer Valley caller George 
Marshall and the Ithaca debut of the multinational band Crowfoot, which has 
been heating up dance floors and concert stages across the land, including 
the recent Brattleboro Dawn Dance. Adam Broome (from rural England), on 
guitar, cittern, and vocals, draws inspiration from diverse wells: 
Renaissance to reggae. Jaige Trudel on fiddle, cello, and vocals shows her 
classical-Celtic-Appalachian roots in sweet, fiery playing. Canadian 
Nicholas Williams (flutes, accordion, piano, vocals) is a scholar of world 
music, from Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, and Quebec, to North India. 
Crowfoot, which melds traditional and original tunes, is known for euphoric 
groove music, infectious energy, and superb, tight "ensemble" instrumentals 
and vocals.

There's a 4-6 pm session for experienced dancers, a 6:30 pm potluck supper, 
and a session 8-11 pm for all dancers. Newcomers are welcome; a beginner's 
workshop at 7:30 pm will cover the simple steps and each dance is taught. 
No need to bring a partner, but please bring clean, soft-soled shoes. Whole 
event: $12 members/$15 nonmembers; afternoon only: $6/$8; evening only: 
$9/$12. Info: 607-539-3174 or http://hands4dancers.org.
