An Old-Time Hootenanny is coming to the Legion Hall in Nelson on Saturday, April 19.

The  Old-Time Hootenanny, beginning at 7 p.m., is a community dance and social with live music and called dances.

No experience necessary.

Live dance music by the old-time band The Forget Me Knots with calling by David Feldman and Friends. 

Easy family dances are followed by squares and contras then dance and mingle sets later in the evening by The Honky Tonk Heros and Kenny Konrad and Old Blind Crow.

This is a fundraiser for the NimbleFingers Bluegrass and Old-Time Music Workshop Bursary Fund. The workshop is in Sorrento in August, but the directors, Craig Korth and Julie Kerr, live in Nelson.

Tickets are on sale now at Otter Books in Nelson — adults $10, Youth $5, 12 and under Free

There’s an Old Timey Easter Brunch at the Vienna Cafe 10 a.m. and an Old Time and Bluegrass Jam at Bigby Place Easter Sunday 1-4 p.m.
