Sweet Potato Five/contra dance band

Here's a photo Bob snapped at the John C. Campbell folkschool in July at the Dance Musician's week. The instructors assigned us to small groups to play a couple dances each evening. They assigned us five ladies together (3 fiddles, a banjo, and a piano) so we became the Sweet Potato Five. We played "Put the Hog's Foot a Little Closer to the Fire & Seneca Square Dance" as a medley for dancing. We also played "Westphalia Waltz" It was great fun with some very talented and fun ladies and it was wonderful to watch the dancers having so much fun dancing to our music. :)
