Hayward Contra

Hayward 4th Sunday Contra with Jean Gorrindo and Raven Hill 

Sunday, July 24th.  4PM-7PM.

Event info on Facebook here:

We welcome a new band and an old friend in the first of two July dances! Raven Hill brings together Anne Goess and Charlie Hancock, two-thirds of the well-loved Raggedy Annes, with Guitar and Harmonica Player Burke Trieschmann.  Anne draws on her experience in Irish music and years of playing for dances to bring us rhythmic and energetic fiddling. Charlie switches from his usual keyboard to accordion and adds to the melodic excitement with his jazzy style, while Burke keep solid rhythm on guitar and occasionally breaks out his harmonica for some inspired riffs.

From Los Osos, near San Luis Obispo, caller Jean Gibson-Gorrindo now regularly tours regionally and nationally. She is a clear and precise teacher who loves to call fun, interesting dances with a bit of a challenge. She has a particular knack for collecting dances with exceptional choreography designed to enhance the connectedness between us all; in her mind, that feeling of connection is what it is all about!

As has been the case in recent months at Hayward, gender-free terminology will be used for this dance. “Larks” start the dance on the left within each couple (traditionally called the gents’ role), while “Ravens” start on the right (as “ladies” do).

The hall opens at 3 pm for setup – volunteers appreciated; just show up! A lesson/orientation for those new to contra dancing is held before the dance, beginning around 3:40 pm. Please bring snacks to share at the break; finger foods and healthier items are especially welcome. Help with cleaning up after the dance is appreciated as well.

(This long running Monday night session has been canceled due to the circumstances of the Bar having, well, closed). For over 10 years this session (started by Colm O’rian, Brian Theriault, and Burke T.) has been one of the best sessions I have ever been a part of.  Many brilliant tunes and songs from some of the best players in the Bay Area have contributed much to its success and staying power. I am hopeful that new session opportunities will be arising soon. Please check back for more information.

Description from original post.

“Every Monday night featuring Brian Therialt, and Burke Trieschmann. Open Session that is not always completely traditional!”
