Many thinks to these fine musicians and to Stephen Stiebel for making his house available. We raised over $600 thanks to their generosity and that of all who attended.


Rip the Calico will play a concert from 7 – 8, followed by an hour of waltzing.

Sunday, March 4, 7:00 – 9:00 PM at Stephen Stiebel’s house, 3222 Henderson Field Rd., Mebane, NC 27302. Stephen’s beautiful home was designed especially for concerts and dances.

Rip the Calico has been playing to high acclaim for contra dances in Chapel Hill, Richmond, VA and Washington, D.C.  In addition, they are featured performers in the Pine Cone’s Music of the Carolina’s series. They specialize in high energy Irish traditional dance music, along with Cape Breton, French Canadian, Galician, Scottish, and original tunes.

$20 suggested donation.

This is a benefit for Triangle Traditional Music and Dance Retirement Society
