John C. Campbell Folk School - Contra & Square Dance with Anne Marie Walter & The Dog Branch Cats

Contra Dancing

Contra & Square Dance withAnne Marie Walter & The Dog Branch Cats

Anne Marie calls regularly in the Asheville area. She has a particular appreciation for energetic dances that flow. Whether the dance requires a bit of thinking or allows you to turn off your brain and just move to the music. She sees much of her job as becoming invisible, selecting the right dances that allow the band to shine. Accomplished in both Contra and English Country dances, she also enjoys the kind of community dances that appeal to families.

The Dog Branch Cats were formed in 1992 with Bob Dalsemer and Jan Davidson, fiddles, Martha Owen, banjo and David Liden, guitar, Geraud Barralon on bass and Annie Fain Barralon on banjo uke. They play lots of danceable old time tunes along with some lively New England and Celtic reels.

Beginners, singles and couples welcome.

Beginners should come promptly at 8 pm, since we start with easier dances and more teaching.
