This year's Berkeley Old Time Music Convention (Sept. 18-22 at various venues, for full schedule see website www.berkeleyoldtimemusic.org) stages its Square Dance Night at Ashkenaz with some of the biggest names in old time music. The nearly-non-stop-square dance-a-thon features three foot-stomping old time bands: Jumpsteady Boys (a super-group with Bruce Molsky, Rafe Stefanini, Mike Compton and Joe Newberry), Foghorn Stringband with Dirk Powell, and, direct from the Blue Ridge Mountains, Eddie Bond and Josh Ellis. Calling is by Beverly Smith (from Georgia) and our own Evie Ladin. In the back studio, there will be a song swap and tune session with West Virginia musicians Frank George and Kim Johnson, and California's Penny Critchlow and Mark Olsen. Come early for a clogging lesson with Evie Ladin. The callers will teach all dances from scratch and call the moves all the way through. No need to bring a partner, although you can if you want, and same-sex couples fit in fine. All ages are welcome at all BOTMC dances.
