Rush River Ramblers return to River Falls barn dance

March 11, 2015

The popular local string band, the Rush River Ramblers, will return for
another River Falls barn dance from 7-10 p.m. on Saturday, March 21, in the RiverĀ Falls Academy gymnasium.

This regional old-time favorite features musicians from Spring Valley and
Martell. Sue West, a nationally recognized recording artist, plays guitar
for the Rush River Ramblers.

No prior dancing experience is required. A skilled caller teaches steps to
newcomers and more seasoned dancers, both young and old. All dances are
social and singles are welcome. Children are especially encouraged to
participate in the opening family dance segment from 7-8:30 p.m. The
second half of the evening may feature somewhat more advanced dances.

The remaining date in the 2014-2015 season will feature Poor Benny on
Saturday, April 18.

The barn dance series is volunteer-operated and jointly sponsored by River
Falls Community Arts Base and River Falls Parks and Recreation. Admission
is $5 for adults and $2.50 for 12 and under. Inexpensive refreshments are
available. Information can be found at
