TAUNY/SLU Contra Club
Community Contra Dances and Tune School
Tune School: begins in February
Each week, day to be determined, 4:30 - 6:00pm at The TAUNY Center
Dances: Dates to be announced
TAUNY and the student contra dance club at St. Lawrence University team up to hold monthly Community Contra Dances and a weekly Tune School.
Acoustic and traditional musicians are encouraged to attend weekly, with the goal to play as part of the band for the contra dances. Tune School meetings are a cross between lessons and a jam, with a melody instrument player teaching tunes each week. Players should be comfortable learning by ear, and are encouraged to bring recording devices and/or notebooks to help with picking tunes up. Both melody and rhythm instruments are welcome.
Styles vary depending on the teachers, who include Cape Breton and Scottish-style fiddle player Jacob Brillhart, fiddler Dillon Black, and Appalachian-style clawhammer banjo player and TAUNY Director of Research and Programs Camilla Ammirati. Attention is given to tunes, etiquette, and methods for playing with other musicians in various styles, and how best to play for dances.
TAUNY Jam players are ancouraged to attend Tune School as well!
Contact TAUNY at 315-386-4289 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Dust off those instruments and join us!
