Eugene Folklore Society Contra Dance
January 12 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Saturday Contra dance! Campaign for Reel Time with William Watson calling
Campaign for Reel Time: Betsy Branch, fiddle, Bill Tomczak, clarinet and sax, Mark Douglass, piano. This trio of seasoned contra dance players delights in exploring the raucous edges of dance music. One thing is certain—they’re having as much fun playing as the dancers are having dancing!
William Watson, now a resident of Portland, OR, danced his first contra in 1989 and began calling in Texas in 1992. Having called numerous contra events in cities coast-to-coast, William’s extensive experience and soothing voice project a calm confidence. His vigilant and thoughtful dance programming ensures a variety of figures, transitions, and sequences to entertain and support new dancers while offering the occasional challenge for the more advanced. His calling proficiency and sensitivities ensure everyone has a good time.
