Homepages of bands, musicians and callers

Like all of the rest of this stuff, this page is always under construction. Last updated on March 2, 2000

Many of these people hang out or at least quietly lurk on the Usenet newsgroup rec.folk-dancing, which is also the Folk Dance Mailing List.

What's new?

Martha Edwards, one of my favorite people anywhere, maintains Stringdancer's homepage. They're from St. Louis.
The Last Gaspe are one of my favorite dance bands; I can't say enough about the pleasures of calling with them at the final Northfield Dawn Dance. (RIP) They showed up at 8:15, danced till three, then played till 7, keeping a hundred dancers on the floor till dawn. A worthy finale. They're from Madison, Wisconsin.
The Hotpoint Stringband are some of the sweetest people I know (and a smokin' band too). They're from Athens, Ohio.
Ten Penny Bit, from Louisville, are another great dance band and form the core of Louisville's legendary Monday night open band, the band (and the community) that made me a dancer and that's still the best place I know.
