Phylla Mae Fall Fest

October 17 & 18, 2014

Save the date!

The 2014 PMFF will feature:

  • Calling by Bob Dalsemer
  • Music by The Russet Trio
  • More music by Seaglass
  • and much, much more!

Phylla Mae (pronounced “fill-a-may”) is our annual music and dance festival and features great musicians from near and far, wonderful workshops and tons of dancing! It’s a chance for us to throw a party for our community and invite dancers from all over to join us! Like all of our dances it is run by volunteers.

The 2014 Phylla Mae Fall Fest returns to our regular hall in Fayetteville during our familiar date: the 3rd weekend in October. Planning is underway for a fantastic array of workshops. There is a rumor that cheesecake squares may be involved…

About “Phylla Mae”

Phylla Mae was the “nom de dance” of Phyllis Antos — the name she always put on buttons or nametags at the many dance events she attended. Phyllis was one of the organizers who got our fall dance weekend off the ground in its first two years. After she was killed in a head-on collision on her way home from a clogging team rehearsal, our Board voted unanimously to name the weekend that she loved so much and worked so hard on for her. Phyllis’s favorite contra dance was Delphiniums and Daisies by Tanya Rotenberg, and we often find a way to include it in the weekend.
