Contra Dance Clemmons – Laurie Fisher and Nic Coker with Caller Nick Boulet
Tuesday, February 5 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Multi-talented Laurie Fisher has been wending her musical mercenary way for the past 28 years. A self proclaimed ‘Jill of many instruments, master of none’, she calls dances, plays and instructs multiple instruments and musical styles.
She is founding fiddler of ‘The String Beings’ whose popularity and cds had them playing around the country at contra events in the nineties. She has also played fiddle, piano, bass and percussion in contrabands Windmill, Boom Chuck, Hot Flash, Holy Coyote, Reckless Abandon (the Asheville one), Haphazard Ensemble, Ants In The Pantry, Evil Twins, Chicken Tractor and Bare Knuckle Quartet.

Nic loves playing Contra Dances, barn dances, swing dances, dance dances, bluegrass, country-blues, jazz, ragtime, oldtime, newtime, reallyreallyoldtime, hasn’t-even-happened-yet-futuretime, any Fusions, and whatever else ranging from strictly traditional to highly strange to entirely inaudible. Nic currently plays in the contra dance bands “Boom Chuck”, “Spinning Wheel”, “Kudzoo”, “Spin Cycle”, “The Stuff!”, and the country-swing band “Screech Owl Serenade”, amongst other projects and street performances
Caller is Nick Boulet who will surely guide us through lots of fun dances.
