Performer Archive

Our bands and callers are drawn exclusively from the community of local area of Maryland, DC, Northern Virginia and nearby West Virginia, with rare exception. We can do this because the region is home to many of the best musicians and callers in the country. We do not entertain traveling bands from outside the area. This gives area musicians a home base where they can maintain a presence and build a following among their home crowd of dancers.
