About US

Our Mission

Our goal is to preserve and promote the appreciation and performance of traditional and contemporary folk music and dance in American culture.

We meet that goal throughout the year in the Southern Maryland region by sponsoring monthly contra dances and concerts and occasional workshops. In addition, many of our members play out in jams, house concerts, and other civic events.

We believe that traditional music and dance are an important part of our heritage. We love learning it, playing it, dancing to it, and listening to it, and we want to preserve it by passing it along

Where we meet: We generally meet at the Christ Church parish hall, 37497 Zach Fowler Rd., Chaptico, MD. We do occasionally move the venue or the night due to circumstances, so it is wise to double check if you don't already regularly show up to events.
