New videos: Old Timers Talk

An announcement from our incoming Board President, David Millstone.


Folks interested in the history of contra dancing in New England and upstate New York in the post-World War II era may enjoy watching a series of six videos from this year’s Dance Flurry.

Billed as “Old TImers Talk” and moderated by incoming CDSS president David Millstone, the panel includes Dudley Laufman and Bob McQuillen, each recipients of the CDSS Lifetime Contribution Award; Ralph Sweet, longtime Connecticut dance caller and leader of a singing squares workshop this summer at Timber Ridge; and Bill and Andy Spence, musician (hammered dulcimer, Fennig’s All Stars) and organizer (Andy’s Front Hall, and founder of the Old Songs Festival). Lots of good stories!
