Cis Hinkle, the featured dance caller at the 2010 Pickin' in the Pines Bluegrass and Acoustic Music Festival held in Flagstaff, Arizona, calls a fun square dance with a capacity crowd. This set featured music by the Freight Hoppers from Bryson City, NC, http://www.myspace.com/thefreighthoppers

The Flagstaff Friends of Traditional Music host a great contra dance http://www.ffotm.net/contra/ on the first Saturday evening (usually) of the month from 7:30 until 10:30. Join us on the hardwood floors of the lovely Ashurst/Old Main Hall on the campus of Northern Arizona University. Contra dancing is a fine way to spend a Saturday evening!

The dances are fun and the break time offers the beautiful trees and green grass of the Old Main campus. There is instruction given before each dance, and basic contra dance moves are taught at 7:30. Come alone or bring a friend.

During the 1990s, The Freight Hoppers became the most popular modern day old time music string band in the world. They recorded two critically acclaimed albums that climbed into the top 20 of Billboard's Americana music charts. They toured extensively in the U.S., Canada and Europe, appeared on Garrison Keillor's " A Prairie Home Companion," and elevated the popularity of old time music all over the world. The original band ceased touring in 2002, but re-formed in 2007 with original members David Bass (fiddle) and Frank Lee (banjo/vocals) and new members Isaac Deal (guitar/vocals) and Bradley Adams (bass). The Freight Hoppers are one of our featured contra dance bands, in addition to playing on the main stage.
