Lanesboro Barn Dance, Saturday June 21


Fri, Jun 13th, 2014
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

The Lanesboro Barn Dance will present another chance to kick up your heels on Saturday June 21 at the Sons of Norway Hall in Lanesboro, Minn. Starting time is 8 p.m. and admission is $7 at the door. Located on Parkway Ave. next to Sylvan Park, the Sons of Norway has one of the best dance floors in the area. This is the 20th season for the Barn Dance.

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. Shawn Glidden from St. Paul will be teaching and calling square dances and big circles.

Guest musician Lynn “Chirps” Smith will join regular Bob Bovee for a rollicking evening of traditional square dances, big circles, waltzes and polkas. Smith will play fiddle and Bovee will add guitar and harmonica.

This event is presented in cooperation with the southeastern Minnesota Arts Council through funding from the Minnesota State Legislature.

For more information, call 507-498-5452 or check the website: www.boveeheil.com
