Morris Dancing @ Eugene Garden Club
Feb 13 @ 6:15 pm – 8:15 pm

Two Rivers Morris

No one knows exactly when Morris dancing began, but what we do know for sure it began long ago in rural England and today it it happens in Lane County and all over the globe.

Two Rivers dances border-style English Morris, wearing a traditional kit of bells, tatters, hats and sticks.

We usually practice Mondays from 6:15-8:15 at the Garden Club at 1645 High St., Eugene, and we welcome new dancers who would like to try out Morris dancing. Practice is done in street clothes while we wear our kit when performing.

Parking is available in the lot directly across the street. (do not park in the lot of the next-door business). We enter at the door just to the left of the large front door. After practice you may find some of us at a local pub enjoying a pint of good ale.

We invite you to come try Morris dancing and perhaps join us!

Band: Joyride

Joyride is a Portland Oregon contra dance band known for fun, skilled play, tunes fit to dance figures, and ringing, rocking, gorgeous melodies that make you want to move. George Penk’s rich and lively fiddle, Erik Weberg’s nimble flute, harmonica and bombarde, Sue Songer’s pulsing piano, and Jeff Kerssen-Griep’s percussive guitar energy breathe big life into modern and traditional tunes for dances, weekends, and festivals.

Caller: Jean Gorrindo

Jean hails from the Central Coast of California, living in a little coastal town near San Luis Obispo called Los Osos.  She began calling quite some time ago at the encouragement of Jim and Amber Mueller of the Growling Old Geezers, Arroyo Grande, and MIchael Gutin of Santa Barbara.  A few years ago she extended her calling sphere and started branching out to other dances in California.  The more she called, the more she really liked it and got better at it, and now she is calling for dances all over the US!!  Her strong teaching and musical skills, combined with her musical and rhythmic vocal quality, help her deliver dances that are flowing, challenging, and fun!  She has a particular knack for collecting dances with exceptional choreography designed to enhance the connectedness between us all.  In her mind, that feeling of connection is what it is all about!
