Event Description

Come and join renowned storyteller, singer, and dance caller Tim Van Egmond as he shares stories for Bedford's Unplugged celebration. Not only will he regale the audience with stories, but he'll get folks on their feet and dancing as he teaches and calls traditional singing games, reels, and circle dances that are simple and fun. He'll accompany some of the dances with hammered dulcimer, guitar, and spoons, singing the rest of the accompaniment with the help of the dancers. This event will take place in Bedford's Old Town Hall, a perfect site for dancing, from 4-6pm on Sunday, November 15. An event not to be missed! For more information visit Free Admission
