| $14

Whether you’re young, young at heart, a novice or experienced, let the music invite you to the dance floor, and find out what dancers across America have been enjoying for centuries!
Caller Dave Harvey, known for his expert instruction and great sense of humor, will lead the dancers accompanied by an excellent band — Manor family Edith Gawler and Bennett Konesni joined by legendary Yankee fiddler Jeff Davis.
Jeff is one of the nation’s foremost performers, interpreters and collectors of traditional American folk music and is known for having done more to research and resurrect Long Island’s native fiddle tunes than anyone on the planet. He has played with many of the greats of traditional music over the years and travels internationally. Jeff’s witty presence and distinctive voice make him one of the most sought after performers on the traditional music scene.
