Music by Stringfiddle
In 1980, Judy Baker conceived the idea of a Colonial Ball as a “posh do” creating an occasion for dancers to dress up and the inaugural ball was held in March. The essence of “poshness” has remained with dancers dressing in period attire and the formality of booking dances on a dance card, as guests mingle, before the ball.
Judy will, once again, be calling the dances, as she did for the first ten Colonial Balls. This year she will team up with the band Stringfiddle featuring Bob McInnes.
