Contra Dance Clemmons – George Paul and Karina Wilson – Caller Nick Boulet

Tuesday, June 25 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

(scroll to the bottom of this page for a complete poster for this dance!)
Violinist, fiddler, songwriter, and composer, Santa Fe native Karina Wilson has been performing with artists and touring acts on the national and international scene since 2005 around the US and Ireland, France, Belgium, Switzerland, and Poland. She has composed and performed original music for the ARCOS Dance touring show “Warriors”, as well as the NMSA and SFUAD original production of “woman’s voices”, and the Santa Fe Playhouse “Santa Fe fiesta melodrama” and has been featured on numerous recordings throughout the United States and Ireland.

In addition to touring nationally with acclaimed tune writer Larry Unger, she is an active member of numerous local Santa Fe bands as well as leading her own projects: The Katydids, Karina and Pete, and the Karina Wilson Trio- a performance art group, and runs a private violin/viola studio.

Strongly influenced by traditional American music styles (like southern Appalachian old time, Northern New England, French Canadian Québécois, Texas swing, honky tonk, Cajun, American folk and rock n roll.) With elements of world music traditions (Irish, Scottish, English country dance/early music, west African Susu music and dance, and Zimbabwean mbira). She is finding a way of stitching the old traditions together and bringing them back out into the current soundscape.

Caller will be Nick Boulet who always has fun dances for us!
