Nashville, Tennessee-based Roochie Toochie and the Ragtime Shepherd Kings will provide music this evening. They are Aaron Jonah Lewis, Joy Patterson, Tim Findlen, Lindsay McCaw, and Matt Bell. The sport the familiar fiddles, banjo, and ukulele, as well as less-familiar sound-makers like a row of squeezy toys and slide whistle. They’re on tour in New England and thought they would try playing for a contra dance. Why not? Local caller Dugan Murphy will keep them in line. Sound will be provided by Glen Loper.
