Entry for December 17, 2005

Traveled to Blacksburg, Virginia for the contra dance.  Ate dinner beforehand at Guadelupes on South Main with Sean Brennerman, Nathan Post, Kathy Anderson (the caller) and her partner.  The Contrarians {Will Carter: stand-up bass;  Gary Reynolds: guitar, trumpet, piano;  John Longwell: mandolin, tenor banjo, fiddle; · Paul Epstein: fiddle) from Charleston, WV played.  I first heard them as the Trusty House Band, back when Hunt Charach  ( who died of cancer at 44 in 2000)  played guitar with them.  I stayed with Dave and Tanya Miller and got to join them and the band at a local road house after the dance.

Stayed with Nathan, as did Dave Mills.
