BOO Grass Scare Dance IV October 31st, 2014 Yes, that was the best BOOgrass Scare Dance yet. Our first sold out dance square dance. I think we found our new home at the Norway House.
As always, YOMADA's House Stringband played some good old time tunes. We also had some very special guests, The Sweet Lowdown ripping it up for the second have of the square dance. Plus Dylan Stone's Country Outfit closing down the night with some our favourite country classics.
We had 3 square dance callers... Paul Silveria from Vancouver, Charmaine Slaven from Seattle, and YOMADA's very own Craig Marcuk. Music from YOMADA House Stringband, Squirrel Butter and The Hi-O Revelers including late-night couples dancing to some good ol' honky tonkmusic. We're looking forward to doing this all over again in Spring 2015!
BOO Grass Scare Dance III October 26th, 2013
YOMADA's best dance yet!
The evening started off with Dan Weisenburger and friends. Then we did some square dancing with the YOMADA House Stringband and caller Craig. The Mighty Moonshiners played some bluegrass for the grand finale and dance off contest. And we also had a special set from Fraea the Banshee.
It was great to see all the dancers in costume. It was also great to see all the bands in costume. YOMADA's House Stringband were the characters from the Wizard of Oz. The Moonshiners were moonshiners.

It was a mighty fine weekend of music and dancing. Foghorn started things off with a concert at the Fairfield United Church on the Friday night. Saturday was filled with workshops in harmony singing, old-time fiddle, bass, and clogging! And what a dance! We packed the Fairfield United Church Hall with all kinds of people and did some old-time square dancin'. Yeehaw!
