Kilts and Ghillies Tea Dance

Save the Date! The 2020 Kilts & Ghillies Tea Dance is scheduled for Saturday, May 2 at the South Britain Congregational Church’s Parish House from 3:00 to 7:00 PM. Light supper (plus potluck contributions from Branch members!), desserts, tea/coffee will be served at intermission. Please note that to avoid conflicts with other major Northeast dance events, we have moved the date to the first Saturday in May!

Once again we have confirmed a fantastic band! Returning for 2020 is the dynamic duo; this year it’s Peter Macfarlane (fiddle) and Susie Petrov (piano), who played for the 2018 Kilts and Ghillies Tea Dance.

Over the summer Peter Price and Sandra Bethray have been diligently working on devising the 2020 program, consulting with Peter Mac for musical advice. Links to the program are below.

We look forward to seeing you next Spring! The program is a balance of easy and challenging dances, including some long time favorites as well as intriguing, less familiar dances.
