MMTD Contra Dance with the Mound City Slickers – Paula McFarling callingFriday, May 19thDoors at 7, dance from 7:30 to 10:00 pm

Location: The Ashland American Legion Post 152, at 123 E. Broadway, right on the main drag in downtown Ashland, MO. 

Please join us for our regular third Friday MMTD Contra Dance at the American Legion in Ashland, MO.

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. The band is Sean Belt (ukuleles), Lindell Blackford (fiddle & mandolin), Rich Hibbs (banjo), Rich Egan (piano), and Keith Dudding (guitar).

Local caller Paula McFarling will be serving up some great dances to this dynamic band!

After the dance, feel free to join us for a social gathering at the hall. Bring a snack to share and your favorite beverage.

Come at 7pm for a contra dance lesson or refresher and be ready to join in when dancing officially starts at 7:30.

Full admission price: $10
Listener and student price: $5
16 and under: Free

Our Ashland venue has a great dance floor, and the live music and calling shouldn’t be missed. So we hope to see you there!

You can park on the street in front of the American Legion hall. If you can’t find a spot, there’s plenty of parking in back and you may use the back door. (See photo below)
