Malanda Country Dance presents

English Country Dance
and Music Weekend

including a Bush Dance

Fri 3rd – Sun 5th May, 2019
Atherton & Malanda

In a rare coup, the Malanda English Country Dance group has succeeded in attracting to the Tablelands, via the National Folk Festival and Hobart, for the first time in Australia, the international folk band Roguery from the USA.

The Roguery trio is composed of three highly versatile veteran musicians who have come together to enchant dancers and listeners alike. Their arrangements range from strictly traditional to soaring flights of imagination and improvisation. They have recorded 6 CDs, and have become favourites at events throughout the USA and England. The band’s varied influences include English, contra, early music, classical, Breton, Scottish, Irish, Cape Breton, Galician, French, Balkan, jazz-fusion, Greek, and a variety of song traditions.  See: rogueryband.com.

Roguery: Jim Oakden, Shira Kammen, Dave Bartley and Brooke Friendly (seated).

See (and hear) Roguery in concert, learn from them in singing workshops, or dance to their inspiring music and the calling of Brooke Friendly, an energetic and highly experienced dance teacher popular throughout North America and England.
