31st August 2024 with Box of Frogs, calling from Lauren Catlin and Sally Vernon

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?

Sally Vernon

Sally Vernon has been calling for a wide variety of folk styles since her time as a student at Cambridge (longer ago than she likes to admit!) She aims to bring her favourite parts of contra to the evening - the fun of connecting with many people on the dance floor, the joy of moving in time to music, and the surprise of discovering deep patterns from simple moves. Keen to share her love of contra with as many people as possible, she strives to make a welcoming friendly environment that is comfortable for new people - while also enjoying finding things that are new to challenge comfortable people!
