We have an awesome band to warm our mid-winter hearts, Northern Shores. Northern Shores features Dave and Char Beach providing the rhythm sharing the guitar, along with playing mandolin and bodhran, respectively, Melody Draves on flute and whistles, along their friend Foy with his wonderful, driving fiddle playing. Morna Leonard is an awesome caller from Hamilton, Montana. It’s been a while since Morna’s called for us, so we’re very much looking forward to this dance. Great band and great caller! And as a note, Morna is seriously chemically sensitive, so please, no fragrances at this dance.\
