Contradictions contra dance and dessert potluck

  • Community School of Music and Arts 330 East State St. Ithaca, NY (map)

CANCELLED because of predicted snowstorm. Stay safe! Come to our next dance on February 23!

Beloved Ithaca-based band The Contradictions offers an eclectic mix of blissfully danceable fiddle tunes from American and European traditions. Their repertoire ranges from lively Irish jigs, New England double fiddling, and French Canadian reels to enchanting Venezuelan waltzes, slick bluegrass fiddle breaks, and 1930s hot swing standards, all designed to get your feet moving. The band features Rick Manning and Eileen Kalfass on fiddle, Dave Davies on guitar and (sometimes even brass), and Travis Knapp on piano and guitar.
