Barn dance fundraiser held at Langley church

A barn dance on March 7 in Langley will feature fiddle music, Scottish country dance tunes, a silent auction and treats as the West Coast Fiddlers raise funds for the youth musical group.

The West Coast Fiddlers are a long-running group for 12- to 18-year-olds.

They are a talented group of players that opened up for Natalie McMaster, explained event organizer Csilla Wilson, the treasurer with the Harmony Music Society.

People can check out the West Coast Fiddlers Barn Dance 2014 performance through the group’s Facebook site.

They’ve also rounded up some old-country help for the fundraiser on Saturday.

The Tartan Players are a Scottish dance band with more than 80 gigs under their kilts, having performed around the Lower Mainland and as far away as Hawaii.

As well, Louise Steinway will be calling dances, and the event includes treats, a silent auction and games for the kids during intermissions.

The barn dance has been held since 2009 in different communities including Fort Langley, Abbotsford, Aldergrove, and Langley. It is sponsored by the Sabir Sisters Music Studio for the Harmony Music Society.

“We will have a caller and we will be demonstrating the dancing to everyone,” Wilson said. “It is fun for all ages.”

This year it’s at the Southridge Community Church, 22756 48th Ave.

“We hope to have around 250 to 300 people there,” Wilson said.

The doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the dance starts at 7 p.m. Advance tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for children and $35 for a family (two adults and two children).

At the door, tickets cost $20, $15 and $45, respectively.
