Contra Dance Salem College -Gretchen Caverly and George Paul with Caller Valerie Helbert

Sunday, April 7, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

On Sunday, April 7th, we have an energetic band composed of two expert musicians – George Paul on keys and Gretchen Caverly on fiddle – whom you’ve enjoyed in other well known bands. George Paul’s fingers fly over the keys making jazzy and improvised chords and rhythms. You get double the fun with new synergy thrown in!

Our Caller will be Valerie Helbert, who’s smooth style makes it fun for newcomers and experienced dancers alike.
