You will love the foot tapping tunes of the BMC's Traditional Music students as they head down Main Street during the parade, led by Keith Murphy and Becky Tracy, and then everyone is invited to come and dance!
Southeastern Vermont is one of the hubs of the contradance movement! The SOTH Contra Dance will feature an exciting massed band of all the Celtic Music Classes from the Brattleboro Music Center led by Keith Murphy. Between 20 and 25 musicians from youth and adult classes will combine to create a particularly festive end to another Strolling of the Heiffers. Several Putney residents are among the musicians playing. Rebecca Lay will be teaching and calling the dances. $4 for children, $7 for adults and $20 for families.
Saturday, June 2, 6:30 to 9:00 pm
The Stone Church, Grove & Main Streets, Brattleboro
This dance is open to all and no experience is required.
