Quimper Grange First Saturday Square Dance features Gabe Strand calling squares and The Geezertones providing the music. Saturday May 5, 7:30-11:00, at Quimper Grange, 1219 Corona St.

 Gabe is a founding member of the Seattle Subversive Square Dance Society, playing a major role in the resurgence of traditional square dancing in Seattle area.  Gabe will be calling squares to please dancers of all ages and experience levels.  

The Geezertones, with Bertram Levy on fiddle, will prove, once and for all, that musical drive does not diminish with age.  Bertram has been in the traditional music scene for decades, and was one of the original founders of the Festival of American Fiddle Tunes. In addition to fiddle, Bertram will be playing banjo and concertina.  Bertram will be joined by Kristin Smith on fiddle, Russ Clark on bass, and Dave Thielk on guitar.  Dancers can expect southern traditional tunes played with contemporary zeal.
