The Lanesboro Barn Dance will present another chance to kick up your heels on Saturday, Aug. 10 at the Sons of Norway Hall in Lanesboro. Starting time is 8 p.m. and admission is $7 at the door.

Although it’s good to know right from left before you come, no other knowledge or experience is required.

All organized dances are taught and you don’t need to bring a partner. This is like the old-fashioned barn dances that were once the mainstay of entertainment in this part of the country. Just come prepared to have a good time.

Sue Hulsether  from southwestern Wisconsin will be teaching and calling square dances and big circles.

Guest musicians Marc and Brandi Janssen from Iowa City, Iowa will join regular Bob Bovee for a rollicking evening of traditional square dances, big circles, waltzes and polkas. The Janssens play fiddle, banjo and mandolin, and Bovee will add guitar and harmonica.

This event is presented in cooperation with the southeastern Minnesota Arts Council through funding from the Minnesota State Legislature.
