NOTES: The "Moving Violations" band is Van Kaynor, fiddle ; Ron Grosslein, fiddle, mandolin; and Eric Eid-Reiner, keyboard! Their music presents another side of contra music, with a fusion approach that adds their arrangements of dance tunes from Scandinavia and Eastern Europe to contra's Anglo-Celtic framework, all played with affectionate abandon!  Contra dancing is informal, with easily-learned dance steps taught by the caller. You do not need to bring a partner with you, as it is customary to switch partners after each dance.  Casual clothing is fine for this fun energetic exercise!  It is recommended to wear shoes that move easily on the floor. There's No smoking or drinking but plenty of dancing!  Come on out and join the fun!
