If we have to bring our 2018-19 season to a close, let’s at least do it on a full stomach! The festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, when you’re invited to share your favorite dish at Big Scioty’s annual potluck dinner. Afterward, the treats continue with the appearance of a renowned caller and the Columbus premiere of a fine Louisville quartet.

Kathy Anderson travels far and wide calling her intriguing programs of contras and squares, and this weekend she’s coming to Columbus! We’re thrilled to have her—and Kathy is thrilled to be sharing the stage with the Big Four, a 1-year-old band featuring fiddler Andrew Taylor of the Ripples. Andrew describes the Kentucky band’s style as a “neat mix of French Canadian, Irish, old-time and New England, but with a modern bluegrass flare.” More at their Facebook page here.

Admission is $8 ($7 for members), $4 ($3) for ages 12-26, free for children younger than 12.
