Where has the time gone? With a handful of festivals this year, including Hermit Music Festival, this blog has gotten a little cold with all of the happenings. It's time to kick it up a notch. How about this Friday night at the Linen Building with a good ole traditional Square Dance!
Modeled after the popular Hokum Hoedown and featuring many familiar faces, the Second Chance Square Dance is a modern take on the old-time hootenanny featuring the infectious swing of an authentic acoustic string band.
At each dance, a live band performs a diverse assortment of traditional folk-dance and string-band tunes while a cast of colorful callers directs the dances.
In addition to square dancing, the event features some good old-fashioned, swingin’, two-steppin’ western dancing. Young and old, couples and families, tattooed hipsters and ten-gallon cowboys ... the Second Chance Square Dance is a come-as-you-are, hand-clappin’ hootenanny for all.
