Community Barn Dance ~ Sunday, March 2, 2 pm 
Emmanuel Church

The Newport String Project and Common Fence Music are bringing an old-time barn dance to Newport and everyone is welcome. Learn what country folks did for fun back in the good old days, when families, friends and neighbors set their work aside and gathered to kick up their heels.  These simple old-time dances are fun for all ages.  No partner or experience necessary.


Champion fiddler and co-director of the Newport String Project, EmmaLee Holmes-Hicks and guitarist Tom Perrotti will provide the toe-tappin’ music.  And master caller Jim Hicks is coming all the way from Illinois to teach the dances and make sure everyone has a good time.
