Civil War Weekend, Amherst Museum, #2
Jim Kimball's "calling" of the Camp Dance dances and his wonderful four piece band provided the musical spark for an evening of lively dancing and socialization !! Fiddles, a cello, guitar and period pump organ made up the band's instrumentation ! Dance selections included quadrilles, waltzes, a schottishe, contra-dances of various types, reels and more !
All present, those who participated in dancing and those who simply enjoyed the music, dancing, chatting and the overall spirit of the event from the sidelines, seemed to genuinely enjoy themselves !
