The idea

  • DEFFA (Down East Friends of Folk Arts) Newsletter - the best way to find out what's what in the Maine contradance scene. Calendar, events, ads, comments, jams, more.
  • Maine Fiddle Camp - a first-rate music camp in a lovely setting & (gasp) with delicious food. Three sessions for lots of fun, great faculty, and it's mighty affordable.
  • Belfast Flying Shoes - this first-Friday Maine contradance is not to be missed. Great bands, great callers, and often four lines of energy under the sparkle-ball.
  • Monadnock Folklore Society - the place to go for southern NH dance information.
  • Al The Webmaster - Webmaster for the Montville Project and other fine sites in Belfast, Maine and around the world.
  • Fiddle Hell - four days of incredible music in early November. Hundreds of workshops, concerts, jams.
