Music and Dance in the Nelson Town Hall -- The Myth, the Magic, the Truth

With Lisa Sieverts and Gordon Peery

Saturday, December 19, at 11:00 a.m.

A program of the Olivia Rodham Memorial Library

Why is it that the humble little town hall in Nelson, NH, is known around the world as the mecca of contra dancing and as an extraordinary venue for folk music concerts?
Lisa Sieverts, a dance caller, and Gordon Peery, a contra dance piano player, will provide both stories and historical background that help explain the Hall’s legendary reputation.

Lisa has lived in Nelson for 18 years and also spent her childhood summers here in the 1970s when she first learned about contra dancing. Gordon has lived in Nelson since the early 1980s and has been playing piano for dances since then. He was involved with the formation of the Monadnock Folklore Society (MFS), the sponsor of most of the musical events in the Hall. Lisa is a current MFS board member.

The formal presentation will be about 30 minutes, followed by a short discussion / Q&A. The program will conclude by noon. 

Advance registration is required:

https://forms.gle/sQanwWpgVW5K1cLg9

A link to the meeting will be sent out approximately 24 hours before the program. 

Early signup is encouraged: there are already 50 registrants, and the limit is 100.
