Web Site News & Updates

This section contains news about the web site and updates to any portion of it, partly for you to be able to keep track of  changes made and partly to serve as a record.

About this Web Site

The NH Country Dance web site has two major parts. One is concerned primarily with fiddling and fiddle tunes; the other primarily with New England contras and squares. Obviously there is overlap.

It is run by Peter Yarensky, fiddler, hammered dulcimer player, piano player, contra and square dance caller and dancer from Seacoast New Hampshire, now living in Newmarket.

In previous incarnations it included the Seacoast Country Dance Newsletter and web sites for the Star Hampshire and Ralph Page Weekends. For now it will be more limited in scope.
