Earlier past schedule
- February 18, 2005, Bandemonium! played at Phinney Ridge in
Seattle, Adam Carlson calling. Great turnout, enthusiastic crowd, and
LeeAnne's fiddle just rocked. The last set added feet (yay Blythe!); when
the fiddle came in over top of the groove it was goosebump city.
- February 12, 2005, calling for Stump Tail Dog up in San Rafael. They're
the best -- dancers and musicians just flowing along by themselves.
- January 28 in Los Altos, playing for a bunch of schoolchildren. Wheee!
- December 24, 2004, playing at Phinney Ridge in Seattle for the first
annual Christmas Eve chestnut series. Two weeks in a row sharing the
stage with David Kaynor. How many tunes in Eb do *you* know?
- December 17, 2004, calling at Phinney Ridge in Seattle for David Kaynor
and band. Talk about a once-in-a-lifetime chance! So David had copies of
his book (on calling) for sale, and so I bought one, and asked him to autograph
it. Which he did -- with a dance.
- December 11, 2004, with Polar Opposites (Charli Meacham), in
San Rafael. Chuck and Charli came down and we spent a holiday weekend
with a dance in the middle.
- December 3-4, 2004, with "Triangularity", Susan Burke from Seattle
and Joe Micheals, at Felton and Monterey. Susie Kendig called the Friday
dance with her usual cheerful aplomb. That was a treat.
- October 17, 2004, visiting Vermont for leaf season. (Ok, no music
involved, but hey.) -- Except that I did get to sit in at a wonderful
session in an old farmhouse in East Alstead NH! There's always music!
- October 15, 2004, Rodney Miller played in San Rafael.
- October 10, 2004, for Tom and Amy in Seattle. They held their wedding
dance in the same hall where Alan and Sande got married last year; and
we played the same waltz for them that Anita and Dave and Claude played
- October 1-2-3, 2004, the String Beings came to town! Wow! Erik
Weberg, my favorite West Coast caller (well, one of the favorites!), did
- September 17-18-19, 2004, dancing at Echo Summit. Reckless Ramblers!
- September 11, 2004, with Erin Shrader in San Rafael.
- September 5-6, 2004, with Lee Anne Welch at Jones Gulch. The
tune to die for started with Blythe on feet, then a piano groove, then
Lee Anne powering in with 'Montebello' -- oooh. Gotta do that again.
- August 20, 2004, we're dedicating the new floor at the Phinney
Ridge Community Center in Seattle, WA. Alan Roberts and I played as the
"Contra Coastal Band", Joe Micheals called. The next night it was off
to Tacoma and the open mike for callers (Joe led, I called a couple).
- August 14, 2004,
calling for Stump Tail Dog at San Rafael.
What a night! Right before halftime,
I got to duck out onto the floor while the band took it away....
- August 6, 2004, rocking with Bandemonium!
in Felton. Tom Van Deusen and Susan Petrick shared the calling.
The dancers said they didn't want the night to end.
- July 25, 2004, fiddler Christiane Biermann and several of us
put together an impromptu contra dance at her wedding party
in Oakland. But some great accordion players stole the
- July 24, 2004, Dave and David and Sue in Sacramento. Put four
enthusiastic musicians together and good things happen! Greg McKenzie
- June 19, 2004, with Bandemonium!, in Monterey, CA.
Those of you who went to Grass Valley instead missed a good one...
- June 11-13, 2004, I travelled to the Ottawa Valley Music Camp,
to hear Kimberley Holmes play the piano.
- June 4, 2004, I called for LeeAnne and Paul and
Sorcerer's Apprentice at Felton, CA.
- May 31, 2004, with Alan Roberts and Sande Gillette as "Contra
Coastal Band" at NW Folklife
2004. Adam Carlson called in the Roadhouse at 10pm, to close
it all down. Wow. That railroad tune...
- May 8, 2004, with Alan Roberts, in Yakima WA. Gary Miller called
for us. "How about next May?" said the organizer, as she has for
several years now.
- May 7, 2004, with Bandemonium! in Felton, CA, Susie Kendig
called. Opened with a waltz session, open band California-style, then
a dance to remember.
- April 10, with Ray Bierl and Susie Kendig calling in San Rafael, CA.
- March 27, 2004, with Alan Roberts and Sande Gillette and friends
in Seattle WA. Joe Micheals called the sweetest night of dancing
in a very long time.
- March 5, with Bandemonium! in Felton, CA. We said goodbye
to Eric Curl, who moved to Colorado.
- February 15, in Santa Cruz, CA, with Bandemonium!. What a set!
- February 7, in Monterey, CA, with Alan Roberts. Once again, two of
us made as much noise as the previous week's forty.
- January 31, in Monterey, CA, with a large open band in a fund-raiser
for the local Y. They're still talking about that night.
- December 19, in Seattle WA, with Bear Dance. Our good-bye dance.
- December 12-13-14: dancing to Hotpoint and Seth Tupfer
at the Dancing Fool weekend in Seattle WA. Hold your breath that the
organizers can pull this dance camp
off again next year. Hotheads unite!
- November 22, in Seattle WA, with Bear Dance.
- November 8 in Fairfax, CA, Bandemonium! played for Mavis
McGaugh and some brave dancers who fought past a nasty rainstorm for
some lovely dancing.
- On November 1, Alan Roberts and I "opened" for the Reckless Ramblers
at the Fall Has Sprung
festival in Grass Valley, CA. Three different callers, a four-hour set,
and lots of intensity. Dance music the way it oughta be. We played lots
of Larry Unger tunes. (So did they.) We wanted to finish up
with Larry Unger's beautiful waltz for Leona Tuttle (featured at Alan's
wedding last month) -- but neither of us had brought the "dots"! No matter,
we bought two copies of Larry's book, in the nick of time.
- October 17-19. Three dances in the Denver area with the Jamie
Laval band. Celtic-style jazz meets contra dance.
- October 9-15. A brief (too-brief) vacation in Cape Breton Island,
Nova Scotia. The spiritual center of fiddle music for dancing.
- October 3-4-5. Hotpoint came to town. I'm out there dancing.
- September 20 with Jamie Laval's band in Bellingham, WA.
- September 5-6-7 with Alan Roberts and Adam Carlson at
the great Montana dance weekend. The quote above is from a dancer at
- August 31 with Celia Ramsay and Jamie Laval in Santa Rosa, CA.
- August 17 I played a lovely quiet dance with Kathrine Gardner
down in Santa Cruz, CA.
- August 7-8 I played two dances in Seattle with Alan Roberts, one
with Adam Carlson calling and one at the new venue in Phinney Ridge,
with Sandy Strand. Couldn't see each other or hear any signals or anything,
but by now it's just plain telepathic. The dancers keep us in line.
- July 26-27 Alan Roberts and I kept them awake at the
Dawn Dance, Rexville Grange, La Conner, WA.
Marlin Prowell invited us, and stayed up to call. We are the first
band in the history of the event to play the graveyard shift, and to
come back the next year and play it again. Hey, the sun came up
after all -- we did something right.
- July 26 I played with Kilmany at the Highland Games in Enumclaw, WA.
- I called a dance at San Rafael on July 12 with Stump Tail Dog.
What a band! First tune of the night they launched on the fly, and
we never looked back.
- July 5 with Kathrine Gardner in Santa Rosa, CA. Andy Wilson called
this special dance. Whoops and whoops. She's one of the rare fiddlers
who can make you dance with the sound of the fiddle all by itself.
(Over the years, I've been fortunate to play with more than my share
of those.) Sweet sound and great tunes.
- July 4 with Ray Bierl in Sonoma, CA. Happy Birthday, Jeanne! What
a way to spend the fourth! If you haven't heard Ray Bierl's fiddle,
run-do-not-walk to the nearest dance. (Swing Farm is one of his bands,
Hillbillies from Mars another.) I learned a lot that day. People stomped
and whooped to Leather Britches -- we stuck with the same tune
through the whole dance.
That dance disproved one of my long-held theories, that old-time music
doesn't work for contras. (It helps to play like he does.)
- June 14 as "Bandemonium" with Lee Anne Welch in Sacramento, CA.
A traffic jam getting there just added to the sense of adventure.
- A wedding on June 8 in Olympia, WA. Playing waltzes with Tim Gojio of
Yakima was the highlight for me.
- May 23-26. What a Northwest Folklife
Festival! Mostly I just danced, and caught up with all those old
friends I'd missed since leaving for California last year. I played
two dance sets on Sunday night, one with Charli Meacham as "Polar Opposites",
and the last contra of the night, with Jamie Laval and Hannsjoerg Scheid
(as "Shady Grove"), to a packed and crowded hall.
Alas, frequent snafus at the sound board
(ineptitude? inexperience?) made this Folklife party
much less upbeat than usual.
Maybe the organizers will change their minds and give us back the experts
we'd been used to in earlier years.
- May 9-10 with Alan Roberts in Seattle at Wedgwood and in Yakima WA.
Bruce Larson called several of Friday's dances, with skill and aplomb.
Sandy Strand called the Saturday Yakima dance, one of our very best.
We got the chance to help welcome Tim Gojio to the Yakima dance community.
I think he enjoyed it.
- April 25 in Seattle with Bear Dance. Yet another trombone night.
That Friday dance in Wedgwood is really special.
- April 18-19 with Alan Roberts in Bozeman and Missoula, MT. Our
great and dear friend Mark Clawson of Bozeman
called both dances for us. They were
so energetic, we played quite a bit too fast. Mark's heroics kept the
dancers dancing together, though, and people had a fabulous time.
- April 11-13 is Cascade Contras in Eugene OR. Yang drove twelve hours
each way, through a second-gear snowstorm on the way back; all for a
precious few hours to dance with Nightingale and Bag O'Tricks. Did I
- April 4-5 with Alan Roberts in Felton CA and Monterey CA. Susie
Kendig called for us. Felton was new for us -- where did they all come
from? And where did they get that spirit? Monterey followed,
with its delightful post-dance party and tune session.
- March 22 features Bear Dance in Seattle. Rachel Bearon called.
Many serious dancers were out at Wannadance; but we had ourselves a
ball, and a large crowd, and a lot of fun all around.
- March 7-8 with Alan Roberts
in Sonoma and San Rafael, CA.
Adam Carlson from Seattle came down to call. What a weekend! Sonoma
is a small venue but oh, my! do they dance.
- March 1 in Orcas Island, WA, with Joe Micheals on guitar, and
Sandy Strand of Missouri doing the calling.
the organizer, does a great job to keep
that wonderful local dance humming.
- February 21-23 was the
Rocky Mountain Fiddle Camp's Winter Weekend. Liz Carroll,
David Greenberg, Richard Greene, Loretta Thompson. They
do a week in August too...
- February 7-8 with Jamie Laval in Sonoma and San Rafael, CA,
Susan Petrick (Friday) and Joyce Miller (Saturday), called
for us. What an intense weekend!
- January 24-26. Maybe the rest of you were watching football
on TV; but the
Wintergreen Dance Weekend in Bozeman MT featured the Hillbillies
from Mars and Adam Carlson. (Hey, you can't seem to get either one of them
often enough around here; and this weekend they're together!)
- December 21 with Alan Roberts in San Francisco.
- December 14 with Alan Roberts in Sacramento, California.
Joyce Miller calling again. Sande Gillette of Seattle made the trip too,
and their twin fiddles lit up like you wouldn't believe!
- December 6 with Alan Roberts in Sonoma, California. Lynn Ackerson
called. What an intense night....
- November 16 with Alan Roberts in Monterey, California, and Joyce Miller
calling. Holy cow, what great dancing that night! First time I'd ever
been to Monterey, and I can't wait to come back. We went hiking on Point
Lobos the next morning, crisp and clear. Almost as much fun as dancing.
- November 9 with Jamie Laval at San Rafael, California. Lynn Ackerson
called. They liked us so much we're coming back in February.
- October 26 with Bear Dance in Tacoma, Washington.
- October 5 with Joe Michaels and the Bearons on Orcas Island, Washington.
- August 24 with Bear Dance (that trombone!) at Wedgwood in Seattle.
- August 3 with Alan Roberts at the Bellingham Dawn Dance. Marlin
Prowell called, and people stayed awake.
- July 20 with Alan Roberts at Tacoma, a night of open calling.
- July 13 with Alan Roberts in San Rafael, CA. Joyce Miller called
for us, and we promptly made arrangements to do this some more. (See
- June 15 with Alan Roberts at Magnolia. We had our good-bye party
that night, as I won't be playing the third Saturday dance too much
any more. Sigh. We handed out demo disks from our Folklife set.
You can send mail if yours didn't come
out right or if you'd like another copy;
though I warn I'm still trying to get set up down here.
- June 14 with Alan Roberts at Wedgwood. Adam Carlson called. Another
Some more background
I play mostly with Alan Roberts,
a fantastic fiddler from Memphis and Seattle. (Here's a
sample tune list.) We played at Folklife
this year (7pm Sunday). It sounded like the dancers had as much fun
as we did. Watch this space for an mp3 of our final closing set.
You'll also hear me up there from time to time with
fiddlers and groups. See
Matt Fisher's page for good directions to these local dances.
I'm sorry, but I can't offer you a ride any more!
Cathie's workshop is how I got started.
Most recently we did an alumni megaband at
Northwest Folklife 2002. Catch the tune list!
The 2001 workshop also had a tunelist
that we learned by ear.
I've made up CDs containing the learning tunes. If you were in the
workshop and want one, just let me know.
workshop band has carried on, first under the name
Monday Night All-Stars and later as
Safety in Numbers. Check out
Cathie's home page
for more information.
put together some materials on abc notation.
All of it is available elsewhere, but maybe the compilation will help.
Less recent past schedule...
- May 24-25-26-27. Northwest Folklife!! I hope you caught
the Cathie Whitesides Alumni Reunion band at
7pm Friday (I even called a dance), the incredibly vibrant fiddling
from Alan Roberts at 7pm Sunday, and Anthony's trombone and Rachel's calling
with Bear Dance at 5pm Monday.
- April 27 with Joe Micheals at Kennewick, WA.
Joseph Erhard-Hudson of Moscow ID called for us.
- April 26 with Charli Meacham from Juneau AK. Tom Wimmer called.
Charli juxtaposes swing fiddle in the Rodney Miller style with a driving
rhythm, and she's written many delightful tunes to boot. It's a joy to
play dances with her.
- April 13 with Alan Roberts in Yakima, WA. Adam Carlson called.
- April 6 with Joe Micheals and Anthony and Rachel Bearon
on Orcas Island, WA. What a blast!
- March 23 with Alan Roberts in Eugene, OR. Sue Baker called.
- March 22 with Deb Kirkland and Alan Roberts at Wedgwood.
- March 15 with Alan Roberts and Sande Gillette in Wedgwood. Wow. Twin fiddles triumphant.
- March 3 with Bear Dance in
- February 16 at
Magnolia, with Alan Roberts.
- February 8 at the new Wedgwood dance location, with Charli Meacham of
Juneau. Adam called, Charli played her heart out, and we had a blast.
- February 1 in Bellingham, with Alan Roberts. Warren Argo called.
Thank you, O organizers, for not panicking when I nearly missed
the start of the first dance.
(But I've never done that so far, and my record's unbroken.)
- January 25-26-27, 2002,
Wintergreen dance weekend, Bozeman, MT,
with Alan Roberts and KGB! Wheee! What an
incredible weekend! Six inches of snow.
Smooth as silk organizing. Great music (hey, I got to dance to KGB!).
And a group of people who came to dance and dance and whoop.
I'm making up disks of our sets, complete with whoops; let me know if
you'd like one. And thank you, Erik Weberg, for your calm and your
encouragement and your good cheer, not to mention some great dances.
- January 11 with Kilmany, Scottish music for the Caledonians.
This was fun. Later that night I showed up at the Emerald City
contra, well underway. No one was free to dance, and there was a piano at
the back of the hall, and ... well, the dancers were treated to stereo.
- January 5, a glorious night of calling in Ellensburg, WA.
- January 3, Lake City Community Center, with CRAG (that's
Alan Roberts and Betsy Cooper and Sande Gillette). Woody Lane called
squares and contras. Eric Schlorff joined on bass, harmonica and feet.
- December 15, Magnolia Community Center, with Alan Roberts.
Adam Carlson called. That dance gets better and better. We're proud
to call it our home dance.
- December 9, El Cerrito, CA, with Alan Roberts, Jim Saxe calling;
- December 8, San Rafael, CA, with Alan Roberts, Alan Wilson calling;
- December 7, Sonoma, CA, with Alan Roberts, Erik Hoffman calling.
Bless you, Reta Lockert, for setting up
this trip for us. We were thrilled to see dancers show up at each of the three
dances, night after night. Of course, it was a challenge to come up with
new material each time!
- November 16, Bozeman MT, and November 17, Missoula MT, both with
Alan Roberts playing fiddle and Gary Miller, calling. Holy cow! Wow!!
The pure enthusiasm the dancers showed -- a packed house in Missoula
-- was an amazing experience, and a real inspiration to us. We
sure wish the Seattle crowds could find that kind of verve! Many many
thanks to the organizers of both dances for helping us arrange that
trip. And Gary's calling was magnificent.
- November 9, Seattle, with Anthony Bearon's group Bear Dance.
Rachel Bearon called. Trombones!
- November 3, Ellensburg WA, with Alan Roberts. Marte Fallshore
called a lovely night, building from the happy confusion of many newcomers
to a very intense conclusion.
- October 27,
Contramania! in Vancouver BC, with the Grim Reaper (it's these costumes). The Cat in the Hat called.
- October 6 at the University Friends Center, with Unstrung Heroes and Adam Carlson.
- October 5, with Alan Roberts at the Pinehurst Center in Lake City.
- September 29, Boise, Idaho, with Alan Roberts and Lisa
Sieverts. We had a wonderful time at this day-long
workshop/potluck/evening dance, held in a classic old-fashioned Grange
hall with an old-fashioned dance hall piano. Lisa's a great caller!
We got to hear and dance to the Boise area's own ContraBand, full of hot
and complex tunes, and even formed our own
impromptu "Arena Valley Band" for one of the workshops.
- September 22, Bayview Hall, Whidbey Island, with Alan Roberts.
Adam Carlson called. Our usual -- good crowd, energetic dance, good sound.
- September 15, Magnolia Community Center, with Alan Roberts
and Deb Kirkland and Nick Leininger. Joe Micheals called most of the
dances. I got to play a few, call a few, dance a few. What a night!
- September 8, Yakima, WA, with Alan Roberts. Shelly Jenkins
called for this dance (we learned a lot about calling!), and we were
promptly invited back (April).
- September 7, Pinehurst-Lake City,
as a "friend" of Deb Kirkland. Bass and drums and lots of good
energy. And Deb's incredible fiddle.
- August 24, Lake City
Pinehurst Center, with the Unstrung Heroes (that's me on
fiddle) and Russell Owen calling. We're so spoiled in Seattle,
when newcomer bands get treated to the kind of reception we got.
- August 18 in Tacoma with
Alan Roberts. This wonderful open mike for callers was hosted
by Eric Curl of Sacramento, Cal. We had six different callers on the
evening, not counting Eric. Thanks to Matt Temmel for organizing a
- July 27 at Pinehurst with Alan Roberts and Sande
Gillette and Betsy Cooper. We're a band now, calling
ourselves CRAG or something like that. Twin fiddles like you wouldn't
believe, and Betsy's flute is, well, indescribably gorgeous. Judi
Rivkin called. (Yes, it was contras.)
- July 21 at
with Alan Roberts, Adam Carlson called. Lovely as always.
- July 20 with Safety In Numbers
Pinehurst Center, with Larry Bommarito. Big band, happy time.
- July 14 with Scotch Broth in Friday Harbor. Shaun Hubbard
played a rousing fiddle, and Joe Micheals and I shared the calling
duties when we weren't playing (and sometimes when we were). The
Friday Harbor dance is always a joy, and there are always stories to
tell at the brewpub afterwards. Next time, put it on your calendar:
Drive to Anacortes on Saturday afternoon, walk onto the ferry with
your sleeping bag, get off in Friday Harbor, walk to the Grange hall,
and dance! Plan to crash overnight -- they'll always put up any
Seattle-area dancers -- and come back the next day.
- June 29 with Cathie Whitesides at the Pinehurst
Center (ex-VFW). Kimberly McKittrick called.
- June 2 with Russell Owen and Scotsbroome
at the University Friends Center.
- June 1 with Alan Roberts at the Pinehurst VFW. Tom Wimmer called.
We had fun.
Folklife Festival! Grab your dancing shoes! Island Time is
played at 11am Sunday morning in the Roadhouse.
And the Unstrung Heroes, with Gina Massoni calling, played
on Monday morning at 11am. That funny-looking guy in the middle who was
*not* playing piano, well, that was me.
- May 19 with Alan Roberts at Magnolia,
with Adam Carlson calling. Always a lovely dance.
- May 5 with Alan Roberts in Port Angeles. Suzanne Girardot
called. An enthusiastic crowd, and a rare chance for Alan to trot out
his deep repertoire of old-time tunes. He's good at everything!
- April 28 with Island Time in Friday Harbor. Overnight on a
boat in Friday Harbor, then breakfast and a ferry home. I love this place.
- April 6 with Alan Roberts at the
(formerly the VFW) in Lake City. Adam Carlson called a wonderful night
of dancing. Wheee!
- Birthday! April 1 at Joe Micheals' house. A night to remember.
Thank you to everyone who came out and made the party so special.
- March 17 with Marissa Villemain-Essad and Kilmany at a RSCDS
Scottish Country Dance on Mercer Island. New stuff! The Scottish
country dance music is not sooo different from contra, except for those
devilish strathspeys! They were having so much fun, we were having
so much fun, we played four encores for them.
- March 9 with Jon Singleton and Josie Solseng and Eric Schlorff
at the Ballard Eagles. This was the good-bye dance for the Eagles.
They had some powerful French Canadian tunes going there....
- March 3 with Alan Roberts in Whidbey Island. John Gallager called,
and we had a great time.
- February 17 with Alan Roberts at Magnolia. This is our regular
every-other-month dance. Adam Carlson called a sweet night of
dancing to a small but loyal crowd.
- February 10 with Alan Roberts at the Island Center hall on
Bainbridge Island. Hal Mueller called, the first time since last fall
I believe. Beautiful hall, nice people!
- Birthday! February 8 with Alan Roberts in Lake City.
What a way to celebrate a birthday!
Robert Cromartie from North Carolina, in for the
Slugs at Sunrise festival, called a marvelous evening of dances, and
some fine musicians were out there listening to us.
- January 27 with Alan Roberts and John Gallagher, calling,
in Eugene, Oregon. Potluck, music, dancing, a delightful town and
a delightful time!
- January 5 with the Monday Night All-Stars at the Ballard Eagles. Who-hoo! What a band, what a night!
- December 30 with Alan Roberts at Whidbey Island.
Jennifer Youngman called for Paul Mathews' birthday party. Thank you!
- December 29 at the Ballard Eagles, with Alan Roberts and Deb Kirkland.
We're thinking of calling ourselves the December Surprise.
Tom Wimmer called. Surprises aplenty.
December 16 with Alan Roberts at the Magnolia
Community Center. Marte Fallshore, our friend from
Ellensburg, got lost in the weather -- as did many of you -- and Adam
Carlson filled in with the calling. Small dance, but small dances can be
December 1 was "December Surprise", which sometimes means a fill-in.
Alan Roberts and Deb Kirkland played twin fiddles, and I got to share
the stage. Wow. Lisa Sieverts of Boise, Idaho was the delightful caller.
November 17 with Island Time at the
Ballard Eagles. Whoo-ee! We had two fiddles, a djembe, a flute,
a bouzouki, a guitar, a piano, and a great caller. Whoo-ee!
November 3 with Alan Roberts in Ellensburg, WA. Adam Carlson called.
Some sixty or seventy dancers in a nice gymnasium floor (they let us dance
on the basketball court). We tried some new things. Second half really
picked up steam, and the dancers seemed to leave happy. Waffles and
tunes the next morning at the organizers' house were a special treat.
October 28 with Island Time at the Grange in Friday Harbor, WA.
Whoo-ee! Costume parties and contra dancing go together well.
If you missed it, Island Time's playing (sans costumes) at the
Eagles on November 17. If you were there, I'll bet you'll be at this
next one too. Whoo-ee! Check out the
Penga website for the inspirational source of that incredible
October 20/21 with Alan Roberts in Helena, MT, and Bozeman, MT. Mike
Schuh, calling. Oooh what a driving, energetic dance that was on
Saturday! And yes, we had several repeats, people who heard us in
Helena and made the long drive on Saturday to dance again.
October 7 with Alan Roberts on Whidbey Island, WA. Adam Carlson, calling.
A lovely night of dancing!
September 21 at the
Ballard Eagles. Kimberly McKittrick called. The "mystery fiddlers"
turned out to be Deb Kirkland and Alan Roberts, and the waltz duets
were indescribably lovely.
September 9 with Mike Richardson at the
Ballard Community Center.
September 7 with Alan Roberts at the
September 1 with Lindon Toney at the Olympia South Bay Grange.
August 28 with Cathie Whitesides at the
