Narracan hosts unique events
Narracan Hall will host two concerts unlike any other to coincide with a Quebec Fiddle Weekend Music Camp.
Experience toe-tapping Celtic music from French Canada and Australia with a Sunday afternoon concert before trying something different when contradance, a popular form of dancing originally from New England, hits the hall on Monday night.
The concert on Sunday at 2pm will feature Laura Risk (fiddle) and Rachel Aucoin (piano) from Quebec, the eclectic band “Stony Six” from South Gippsland and the music camp faculty and participants.
Contradance will kick off on Monday at 7.30pm, featuring a dynamic live band to ensure a fun night.
Laura Risk and Rachel Aucoin are premier musicians for contradance in North America and this is a chance to experience this dance on our side of the globe.
The pair will be joined by two of Australia’s top dance players in Pria Schwall-Kearney (fiddle) and Kit Joyce (accordion). Dance caller Jeanette Mill from Canberra will run the show.
Whether or not you’ve tried contradance before, you’ll be able to join in and discover why it has stayed popular across the generations. No partner or experience necessary.
All profits from the 2018 contradance will go to Community Music Victoria.
The Narracan Hall is located on Connections Rd.
