Music by More Pretty Girls Than One and calling by Robin Fischer Ashkenaz, 1317 San Pablo, Berkeley Doors at 2:30, dancing from 3:00-4:30! More Pretty Girls Than One is a Bay Area-based, all-female string band featuring Lauren Leverone on fiddle, Anna Whalen on banjo, and Leslie Keir on guitar. In regular rotation at the North Oakland Square Dance, these women deliver old-time music that is sweet, lively, and daring.

You might remember her from the Ashkenaz Soggy Sundays family dance last year! ----- This Family Square Dance is part of “Soggy Sundays,” Ashkenaz’s series of kids’ shows that chase the winter fog and rain away (or lift spirits higher even if it’s not raining).
