Failte Ball Scottish DanceTime: 6:00 pm
Sherry's oldest band, Thistledown, returns again to play for the Royal Country Dance Society's Failte (Welcome) Ball. We've been playing Scottish Balls since 1982, so we know how to provide lively jigs and reels and graceful strathpeys! Although this is a ball with simpler Scottish country dances, we encourage you to go to the branch's lessons if you plan to dance. For a reduced admission rate, you may partake of the refreshments and listen/watch the music and dance. The ball will be held at the Triune Masonic Lodge, 1898 Iglehart Ave., Saint Paul.Failte Ball Scottish Dance »
