Contra Dance Salem College – Tim Smith & Eileen Regan of Big Celtic Fun Band with Caller Charlotte Crittenden

Sunday, March 3, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

On Sunday, March 3. at Salem College, members of the well known band, Big Celtic Fun come to energize the dancing for us! Hear some great Irish and contra dance music with Tim Smith (flute, tin whistle, concertina, piano and a vocal or two), Eileen Regan (fiddle, guitar, Celtic harp and vocals). Good music like this makes the dancing so much fun!

Charlotte is famous in Brasstown for being able to do everything from call a great contra dance to build a rock wall to shear a sheep! She is fast becoming a popular regional caller, calling at Old Farmer’s Ball, River Falls, Grey Eagle, Chattanooga, and Sautee. Charlotte is also assistant coordinator for Winter Dance Week and assistant instructor for many Folk School classes.

Here is a video of the fun we have at Salem College:
