Contra Dancing
The "KayLee Collective" is the name of our ceilidh and contra dance group. The "collective" includes our callers, musicians and our dancers.  We dance Ceilidh ("KayLee") dances which include Contra dances, circles dances, squares formations and some traditional Line of Dance (LOD) partner dances. In essence we are holding a "Barn Dance."
We play traditional celtic music most of the time. Our repertoire of tunes is listed here.
We welcome other musicians to join us. Regular attendance is NOT required, just an enjoyment of joining and playing traditional folk music for dancers. We have music available but also welcome (and cherish) those who play by ear. We would particularly enjoy having the following instrumentalists join us:
    fiddle; accordian; flute; clarinet; bass, rythmn guitar; banjo; guitar.
other instruments also welcome. 

Graham Gates is our main musician and he plays from a keyboard and is our Sound Man.
Gordon Pascoe plays piano and, on fortunately rare occasions, the accordian.
Our callers include Gordon, Sandra, Angela and Donna. If you would like to call please drop us a note.
