Hallowell—Kennebec Contra Dance

February 24 , 7:00 pm 10:30 pm

Kennebec Contra Dance in the Hallowell City Hall Ballroom.

Come dance with us to one of our favorite bands from away. Bring your family and friends. Newcomers are always welcome.

Caller: Maggie Robinson.

Band: Cojiro (Jess Newman and Mark Price).

We’re sorry to say that Cojiro will not be able to play for the Kennebec Contra this evening. One of the duo came down with a virus (not COVID, but serious enough to induce a fever). It would be hard on them to travel and play under these circumstances, and they’d really rather not share the virus. We’re working on rebooking Cojiro sometime soon, and possibly arranging a house concert. Ellen Gawler and Fred White have offered to step in and play the dance for us. We’ll have a good time, and send healing thoughts to Cojiro.
  • 7:00 pm to 7:30 pm:  Newcomers’ orientation
  • 7:30 pm to 10:30 pm:  Contra Dance
  • Suggested donation: $15 to $25. Pay more if you can; our musicians are worth it
  • If you can’t pay $15, pay what you can. Even if you have no money, you should dance.
  • Children free. Teenagers $8. Children are our future.
