April 15:
Band: Coreopsis
Caller: Jill Allen
Location: Bishop Seabury
Time: Lesson 7:00, Dance 7:30-10:00

The band Coreopsis, hailing from Lawrence, Kansas, took root in 2018. The three musicians: Whitney Baker (accordion), Lauralyn Bodle (fiddle), and Noah Musser (guitar, percussion), bring together intriguing and often complex melodies with irresistibly danceable rhythms. The band’s repertoire incorporates influences from a wide swath of traditional music, including American old-time, Celtic jigs, French-Canadian reels, as well as a healthy dose of original compositions. Adaptable to any caller’s plan, Coreopsis enjoys being able to provide the dance community with a solid groove, a lively performance and a positive presence that will stick with the listener long after the night is over.

Melissa and Bob Atchison have been playing for barn dances since the early 1980s.  Their music has been influenced by old-time Missouri fiddlers, and music of the Ozarks.  They love playing for dances because of the joy the dancers experience.  As a duo of just guitar and fiddle they bring a surprising amount of energy and fun to Lawrence Barn dances.
