Contra Dance Clemmons – New Caledonia and Greg Frock

Tuesday, August 20 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

 New Caledonia is an infrequent but vintage contra dance band dating from the 80’s! Many of the long time dancers will remember Janet and her band, Caledonia from the old days. They were one of the first nationally touring contra bands back in the day! Now they both play with various combinations – Janet around Charlottesville and DC, Laura around Asheville, NC, and with various partners in different parts of the country with the Avant Gardeners or Frequent Flyers. Their style is deeply rooted in the New England contra music, but with excursions into funkier areas of salsa, old time, and modern compositions. They will be joined by Roger Gold.
Website – theavantgardeners.com or Lauralight.com.
Our Caller will be Greg Frock from Maryland.
