Contra Dance Guilford Grange Greensboro – Steamshovel (Roger Gold and David White)/Caller George Segebade
Saturday, June 15 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
(See a poster of this event at the bottom of the page!)
We welcome the band, Steamshovel, which includes David White and Roger Gold. They play their instruments with the potential of the early steam shovels of the mid-1800s.
Both musicians have been playing for contra dances and with several other groups for years. They also compose music and sometimes add vocals to their repertoire. Their dance tunes include selections from the old-time repertoire tinged with Celtic influences and beautiful waltzes.
Gold’s proficiency on the guitar is extensive, ranging from Celtic and jazz styles to intricate melodic playing. He accentuates the sounds with the foot drum. He plays with the highly band The Elftones
White plays fiddle and banjo in the Appalachian old-time style. He lends his groovy, driving and “flowy” fiddling to the Redbud Ramblers.
We are always happy to have George Segebade calling the dances!
