Calling at a Birthday Party

April 10th, 2011
calling, contra
Saturday night I called for a birthday party. I was really excited to be calling because I'd known the family for at least a decade and like them a lot. Full tilt was playing, and they're a lot of fun t work with. The group was a little tricky, as parties can often be, because the group was such a mix. I called (I'm not sure I'm remembering the order):
  1. La Bastringue
  2. Haste to the Wedding
  3. A Ceilidh Dance
  4. Broken Sixpence
  5. Midwest Folklore
  6. Kerry Sets
  7. FARTing Around
  8. Over the Hill and Still Chased
There were some rapper performances and a cake cutting interspersed.

Overall, I think it went well and people had a good time. I do need to find a few more fun simple dances, though, as I was definitely feeling a lack a few times.
