Community Barn Dance

Join us in an age-old tradition of community dancing, held in the Random Harvest Community Space. It’s a wonderful way to connect with your community, friends and family. Enjoy a fun evening of forward and back, do-si-do, swing your partner and more! Dances are easy-to-learn circles, squares, contras and simple folk dances. Smiles and laughter guaranteed!

Caller Paul Rosenberg has been leading dances throughout the northeastern United States since 1986. In recent years, he has been one of the busiest callers in North America, working over 200 dance engagements a year. He is known for his gentle but energetic, encouraging style, concise teaching, and offbeat sense of humor.

Tamarack brings the joyous touch of traditional fiddle music to any event; from wedding receptions and reunions, to barn dances, BBQs and community events. Fiddle, flute and guitar weave their way through smooth waltzes,  foot-tapping reels and lively jigs. Traditional Celtic, early American, Old-Time, French-Canadian and International tunes — melodies handed down through the years — are mixed with original creations to round out the group’s repertoire.  Tamarack is based in the Albany/Saratoga area.
