Band ready to play
Chris,Inna, Bonnie, Carol, Rebecca, and Mary

Dark of the Moon, a women's band based in Madison, Wisconsin, plays traditional music from the the British Isles, America, Scandinavia, and other countries for dancing and listening. We specialize in music for contradancing, such as jigs and reels, and also play waltzes, polkas, schottisches, folk songs, Cajun, bluegrass, Klezmer, and other traditional music.

We're available for dances, festivals, parties, and similar occasions. For dancing, we come with a caller who teaches all the dances. They're easy to learn; you don't need a partner or experience.

Listen to a bit of our music--Waterbound (mp3 format, 828 kb, 42 seconds)

E-mail Mary or Inna to schedule a gig or inquire about joining us as a musician or caller.
