Once a year, the local folk society holds a special weekend event. Any musician who wants to play in the "open band" is welcome to attend and play tunes together. It's a camp out weekend. Then on Saturday night, there is a contra dance featuring these musicians.
The Outstanding Open Band played for dancers last weekend at Sixes Grange. From the vantage point of being on stage, it's a thrill to watch people dancing -- young and old, experienced and first-timers -- all there to take hands and have fun.
