In Harmony’s Way Song Session – Come lead a song, request a song, or just sing along to drinking songs, gospel songs, sea shanties, camp songs, silly songs, sad songs, or anything else with a good chorus or refrain.
* Halfpence and Haypenny – From Medieval Europe to the back cabins of Appalachia, Halfpence and Haypenny will transport you to another time and place.
* Irish Set Dancing Workshop – Learn the traditional social dance of Ireland, combining interesting patterns of movement among the four couples in each set with simple footwork that complements the different rhythms of reels, jigs, polkas or hornpipes to which each figure is danced.
* Dirty Cello – Starting with a bang and never stopping, Dirty Cello takes you on a wild tour of uptempo music featuring down home blues, Eastern- European dance music, a bit of bluegrass, and some classic rock.
