A Facebook page is currently in development, but right now there is an RSS feed if you want to bring the Contra Syncretist straight to your RSS readers:
It is also accessible through the link at right, under "RSS Feed."
Now, if you will excuse me, I just returned from a week and a half overseas and I am exhausted despite my relative lack of dancing (Steve did lots, with his morris side -- I just got swept into a couple of rollicking polkas in cobble-stoned Dutch city squares when the musicians decided to finish off the stands). Among the highlights of the trip was a Dutch accordionist who, having played for English morris dancing all day, turned around and played a song by American Hank Williams in an Italian restaurant in Utrecht...how's that for mixing a few traditions?
Special thanks go to Keith Holman, who posted my entries to the blog while I was away!
Regular content will resume Friday, with the Friday Flourish video as usual.
Coming up in the next couple of weeks, I will be posting my interviews with Maryland-based caller Ann Fallon, who called for DC's Contra Sonic series in June, and with Sheldon "DJ Shel D" Lieberman, who organized and spun for Technophoria in Asheville, NC. Stay tuned!
Carry on Dancing,
