25th March 2023 with Contrasaurus, calling from Charlotte Rich-Griffin
Contrasaurus (Benjamin Rowe — fiddle, Alan Brunier — accordion, Adam Rich-Griffin — guitar, David Ledsam — double bass) play an exciting range of energetic and dino-soaring tunes for American contra dancing. They enjoy playing fresh and exciting tunes for contra dances, workshops, folk clubs and festivals throughout England. Not technically dinosaurs.
Charlotte Rich-Griffin is a friendly contra dance caller from Oxford. She loves sharing the joy of contra dances with everyone from absolute beginners right through to die-hard fans. You may have seen her calling at Chippenham, Sidmouth or Whitby Folk Festivals.
