Talib Huff has been calling dances for over 20 years. He currently calls primarily in the Sacramento region and has led dances for local groups, schools wedding, festivals and dance communities. 

The band is Debra Tayleur on piano, David Wright on fiddle, Sue Jones on concertina and recorder, and Nick Rich on mandolin. Debra Tayleur has played for our dances in Whimsical and The Honeysuckle Sisters. David Wright and Sue Jones are familiar from Magic Reelism, and David also from Star Thistle. Nick Rich is a composer, songwriter, and founder of the progressive folk band Winterbirds. 

A newcomer’s orientation is offered at 6:30 pm, 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.
