20th May 2023 with Box of Frogs, calling from Rob Humphrey
Box of Frogs
Two of the most exciting players on the Contra dance scene. With creative, colourful accordion player Ali Messer (Blue Mountain, Alterations, Fat Harry, Fiddle Chicks) and high energy fiddling from Linda Game (ECDB, Token Women) expect an evening of fabulous dance music. Box the gnat and swat the flea, but can you spot the frog?
Rob Humphrey has been attending folk dance events his whole life. Based in Cambridge, he discovered contra less than 8 years ago, but was quickly hooked and started calling shortly afterwards. He enjoys contra dances with pleasing patterns and unusual geometry that flow and provide opportunities for embellishments.
