7:30 - 10:30 PM (newcomer’s introduction at 7:00 pm)

Contra Dance in Phoenix! at the beautiful Irish Cultural Center

Dance to Dan Levenson & The Cat Mountain Rounders - Dan and Emmy will be fiddling,  John plays guitar and Jerry Thumpin the Bass!

Peg Hesley calls this special end of the year dance. Peg says this high-energy group is “one of the most sought-after contra bands in the SW. Many know them as old-time musicians, but their contra programs are anything but. Their tune selections are amazing, phrasing impeccable and tempos perfect; one of my favorite bands to work with.” Funny that, since Peg is one of our favorite callers!

Come and see, hear and dance for yourself!
