John C. Campbell Folk School - Contra & Square Dance - Seth Tepper & Contraforce

Contra Dancing

Contra & Square Dance -Seth Tepper & Contraforce

Seth Tepfer is "Atlanta's Dance Magician," calling dances for adults and children like you've never seen before. He is known for his infectious energy, his short walk-throughs, and his 'hash-contras', Seth's warm enthusiasm is contagious, and gets everyone moving, smiling, and having a great time. Whether squares, contras, or other folk dances, you can be certain that all involved - novices and experienced dancers alike - will amble away happy and eager to dance more!



Charleston-based quartet ContraForce may be deeply rooted in traditional folk music and the contra dance scene, but when it comes to composing and recording their own tunes, they certainly don't shy away from musical experimentation.
Fiddler AndraeRaffield, Percussionish/handpan/saxophonist Joey Dorwart, guitarist Jimi "Two Nails" Peirano, and Vocalist Karin Mcquade have collaborated on old standards and new originals, working in and around the Celtic and Appalachian folk styles normally featured at contra dances. Karin McQuade has been an enchanting vocal element, joining a few years after the band formed.
