Big Scioty invites you to swing into spring with the help of Big Fun! No, we’re not switching dance styles, but the Ann Arbor-based contra band can be counted on to add a swing tune or two to its assortment of lively jigs and reels. Saturday’s caller will be Columbus’s Richard Ades, who promises a diverse collection of dances, including one that is particularly appropriate for April. (Hint: What is this month’s birthstone?)

Admission is $8 ($7 for members), $4 ($3) for ages 12-26. Children under 12 dance for free.   

SUGGESTIONS, PLEASE: We’re getting ready to book talent for Big Scioty’s 2019-20 season. Do you have a favorite regional band or caller you’d like us to invite? Send your tips to
