November 28 Contra Dance (Fourth Saturday)

  • Lynn Ackerson calling to the music of Honeysuckle Sisters (Debra Tayleur, Regan Hemphill, and Janette Duncan)
  • November 28, 2015 8:00 PM – 11:00 PM
  • Location: Coloma Community Center, 4623 T St, Sacramento, CA 95819
  • $10 for adults; $8 for college students with ID; $5 for dancers under 18; $25 maximum for families

The Honeysuckle Sisters feature the double fiddles of Janette Duncan and Regan Hemphill, with Debra Tayleur on piano. They play oldtime, Celtic, New England, Quebecois Tunes…a wide variety of stuff in a driving, lively fashion. Lynn Ackerson from Oakland, California brings a huge and ever-expanding contra and square dance repertoire. Her gracefully efficient walk throughs and delightful programs reflect her philosophy: to build the relationship between the band and the dancers and then get out of the way.


A newcomer’s orientation is offered at 7:30PM, perfect for people who have not contra danced before, or who could use some refresher. Experienced dancers are invited to partner with newcomers during the orientation and early dances to help integrate them into the community.

No partners are needed, so come by yourself or with friends or with family. Potluck snacks are available at the break, and we encourage you to bring something to share. These events are accessible to people with disabilities.
