Square dance at the American church in Oslo

Last night we played at the American Lutheran Congregation in Oslo. I think it was announced as a social evening with food and dance, and our friend Paul Kirby set it up. It turned out to be a total blast. There were plenty of people and they were more than eager to dance, even if most had never ever been in a square before. Mary Seim taught waltzing, some clogging and Cajun two-step, but it was my debut calling southern squares anywhere else than the safe haven of the Swannanoa Gathering. It was just great fun and exceeded our expectations by miles. Mattias and Elizabeth played fiddles and Paul and I alternated playing guitar and banjo. And Paul sang some wonderful songs and Mary closed the evening with another great dance. Thanks everybody! We hope to do this again soon.
