Event description
Join us for Knoxville Contra Dance's 46th annual dance weekend: Cabin Fever 2020 with The Ripples and Polaris! With calling by Terry Doyle.

About this Event

  • The Ripples are a quartet of contra dance musicians from the East Coast and Midwest. With instrumentation including flute, electric guitar, and singing, they put out a contemporary-meets-traditional sound with hints of jazz, bluegrass, and straight up pop hits. They'll get you groovin’ in no time!
  • Polaris is a contra dance band born and raised in the rich music scene of Western Massachusetts and Vermont, these folks have been soaking in musical stew since before they could walk. They came together as Polaris in 2015, and continue to delight dancers throughout New England. Consisting of Marta Bartholomew and Rose Jackson on twin fiddles, Sam Zakon-Anderson on piano, and Jesse Ball on accordion, guitar, mandolin, and feet, they infuse their music with youthful energy and exuberance that fills up the hall.

We are pleased to welcome featured caller Terry Doyle, she is well known and highly regarded in the contra community.

Sound by Jamie Platt, who provides high quality sound reinforcement services for concerts, dances, dance camps, festivals, and special events in the Washington, DC-area and all around the Eastern US.

The theme for Cabin Fever 2020: “Starry, Starry, Night”. Come as your favorite planet or galaxy or as a calm pool of water with gently lapping waves. In any event, come prepared to dance and to have a wonderful weekend dance experience.

We offer housing with local dancers. We only promise floor space, so come prepared. Some host dancers may live up to 45 minutes from the event. Deadline to request dancer hosting is 1/10/2020.
