Callers and Bands


Callers for MMISL 2020

Gaye Fifer

Gaye hasn't stopped dancing since she found contras in 1979. Introduced to the community in St. Louis, she has found dancing wherever she goes. Gaye learned to call contras in Charlottesville, VA and has been traveling to call and dance for the past 25 years. But, then, most of you already know how much fun she is.

Andrea Nettleton

If you don't already know Andrea, you are going to love her.  She now hails from the Washington D.C area, but has called contra and English country dances from coast to coast. Along with her calling skills, she is a creative choreographer, and has written numerous popular dances. This shows itself in the variety and balance in her dance programing.


Bands for MMISL 2020

Roger Wilco

Roger Wilco is Roger Netherton on fiddle and Bill Boyer on keyboard.  Both are from St Louis and full of surprises. Roger and Bill played at earlier MMISL weekends and we received lots of requests to bring them back



Audacious is Larry Unger on guitar, Audrey Knuth on fiddle, and Glen Loper on banjo/mandolin.  There is so much we could say about these 3 great musicians - but most dancers already know the energy and excitement they bring to an event. Don’t miss this chance to enjoy their music and articipate in the workshops they offer.
