Join us in a return to what is certainly our sweetest dance of the year. Join HFDI and the Contradictions for an evening of contras and couple dances, and bring a dessert to share! Beloved Ithaca-based band The Contradictions offers an eclectic mix of blissfully danceable fiddle tunes from American and European traditions. Their repertoire ranges from lively Irish jigs, New England double fiddling, and French Canadian reels to enchanting Venezuelan waltzes, slick bluegrass fiddle breaks, and 1930s hot swing standards, all designed to get your feet moving. The band features Rick Manning on fiddle and mandolin, Dave Davies on guitar and brass, Tom Hodgson on guitar, and special guest George Wilson on fiddle. The calling will be done by a group of wonderful Ithaca callers: Nancy Spero, Pamela Goddard, Katy Heine, Vikki Armstrong and Casey Carr.
