Based on results of a survey of our Contra community, EFS has changed its health safety policy. As of May 2023 we will no longer require proof of COVID vaccination to attend a contra dance and wearing of masks will be optional, at the discretion of  individual participants.

Band: Dave Bartley and Ben Jackson

Dave Bartley plays guitar, mandolin, cittern, and several other stringed instruments. He has played many styles of music over the years and continues to range over several genres. He has performed throughout the US and Canada, and in England, Australia, France and Greece. It is difficult to count the number of bands in which he plays.

Violinist Ben Jackson strives to project the joy of the musical experience in all of his work. Whether playing solo, chamber, or orchestral music, he has been praised for his musicality and, very occasionally, his technical ability.

Caller: Kelsey Hartman

A dance caller in the California Bay Area for ten years, Kelsey strives to connect the dancers with the band’s magic and music… with the goal of creating a conduit for joy.
