SPUDS is hitting the road to play for the Arden contra dance on Sunday, October 6th, with Sue Gola calling! The dance takes place at the Arden Gild Hall at 2126 The Highway, Arden, Wilmington, DE 19810. It runs from 2:30-5:30 with a beginner lesson at 2:00.

To help make things easy on the sound people who are unaccustomed to working with a pickup band, please arrive at 1:30-1:45 if possible. The website for the dance is http://ardenclub.org/gilds/contradance/, but may not be updated with the current fall 2019 schedule yet. Please contact Laura Alexander at 07alexanderl@gmail.com with any questions. Thanks for coming down to play!!
