MMTD Contra Dance with the Mound City Slickers, with calling by Claire Baffaut
Friday, June 3, at 123 E Broadway, Ashland, MO 65010
Doors at 7, dance at 7:30 pm
Join us for another great night of contra dancing! The Mound City Slickers play old-time string band music with passion, drive, and a great sense of humor. Hailing from the St. Louis region, The Slickers have played festivals, house concerts and more than a few contra and square dances throughout Missouri and Illinois. Steeped in tradition, their concerts are a unique mix of hard-driving dance tunes, country harmonies, Midwest fiddle tunes, rags, and other surprises that have made them favorites of the old-time string band scene. Their high-energy playing and ear for a good tune make for good listening, good dancing, and good times.
If you haven’t given our Ashland venue a try, this is the time to do it! The dance floor is great and this band is a lot of fund to dance to.
