Lanesboro Barn Dance to be held March 29


Fri, Mar 21st, 2014
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

The Lanesboro Barn Dance begins its twentieth season on Saturday March 29 at the Sons of Norway Hall in Lanesboro, Minn. It starts at 8 p.m. and runs until 11 p.m. with an admission charge of $7.

As always, the Lanesboro Barn Dance will feature traditional square dances, big circles and couples dances like waltzes, polkas and schottisches. Square and circle dances will be taught and called by Paul Tyler, “Dr. Do-Si-Do” an experienced and well respected caller Chicago. Paul is also a fine musician, a teacher at Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music, the largest and most prestigious organization of its kind in the country. Tyler also has a PhD in folklore and was the music supervisor for the PBS program “The Hayloft Gang”, a documentary on the National Barn Dance radio show from Chicago radio station WLS.

Old time string band music will be furnished by fiddler Tim Foss from Viroqua, Wis. and local favorite Bob Bovee on guitar and harmonica. A frequent guest musician at the Barn Dance, Foss has played with such regional and local bands as The New Bad Habits, The Combine and the Foghorn Stringband, touring Europe with the latter.

Although it’s good to know right from left before you come, no other knowledge or experience is required. All organized dances are taught and you don’t need to bring a partner. This is like the old-fashioned barn dances that were once the mainstay of entertainment in this part of the country. Just come prepared to have a good time.

The 2014 Lanesboro Barn Dances are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
