Band wanted for an American Civil War dance at Omagh, 3 July 2016

Thanks to Sandra of the Minstrel Boys Living History Group, based at the Ulster American Folk Park, Omagh, Co. Tyrone, scene of the annual Bluegrass Music Festival and many other events throughout the year. Sandra writes:

We have our big event 1-5 July, where we have in total approximately thirty reenactors from here, Germany, and England. For our visitors we would like to hold a private party on site the Sunday night (3 July). It will be a period dance with music. We normally do American Civil War era, so we would want to hire a band who can play this period; and if anyone even knew a new dance to teach us, it would be a bonus - we only know the Virginia reel.

If there would be anybody interested, please contact me by e-mail. We would love a couple of hours from about 8.30 p.m.; rough cost around £350 o.n.o.

The BIB editor says: Step forward, some of our old-time bands - and perhaps Rosie Davis for the dance instruction and a solo clogging display?
