At Greensboro Grange – Starfront Property with Nick Boulet calling

Saturday, November 18 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Saturday, November 18 at the Greensboro Grange we are happy to be able to present an experienced band that has been energizing dancers wherever they go!

Starfront Property is a four-piece string band that plays a variety of styles of dance music from Old Time to a newer repertoire of contradance tunes, including several original tunes. While steeped in the Old Time tradition, they have the flexibility of playing across a wide range of styles. From a whisper to a growl, Starfront Property will keep dancers movin’ and groovin’ all night long.

Matt Livingston (mandolin) and Joel Keebler (bass) played together in Dot Dot Dash for over 10 years before Joel relocated to Portland, OR in 2013. He recently returned to the Appalachians and is currently living in Blacksburg. Jason (guitar, banjo) and Gina Dilg (fiddle) are a husband and wife duo that recently moved east from Colorado to Christiansburg, VA.

Nick Boulet, an excellent caller, who happens to also be president of our Fiddle & Bow Country Dancers group, will be with us to teach and call the dances, making sure everyone gets off to a great start. He makes the dances easy to understand and has a lot of fun doing this.

Parking should be OK now!
