Caller: George Marshall

The highly regarded caller, dance teacher, and musician, George Marshall's specialty is teaching and calling the New England-style contra dances he has collected throughout the country. He is known for his knack of matching music to dance and for his smooth, concise teaching and presentation. Also a talented musician, he plays concertina and bodhran, and has recorded on eight albums. Much of the time he can be found calling/playing with the bands, Wild Asparagus and Swallowtail.
Band:
Clayfoot Strutters:
Peter Davis – clarinet, sax, piano, and guitar
Pete Sutherland – fiddle
Jeremiah McLane – accordion, piano
Lee Blackwell – guitar and drums
Mark Roberts – banjo and flute
Harry Aceto – bass
The Clayfoot Strutters brings together six talented and exciting musicians from Vermont for a high energy, contra dance fusion experience. They are a self-styled New England-based contra dance jam band specializing in fusing the modes and melodies of traditional American immigrant music, progressive harmonies from pop and modal jazz, and hot dance floor rhythms from Afropop, swing, Latin, cajun, and zydeco worlds. As composers, arrangers and songwriters they are also actively contributing new repertoire to this emerging style. The band has a recent CD, Going Elsewhere, available for sale.
