Iron Gibbs (aka The Sapsuckers & Friends- Square Dance
Iron Gibbs (pronounced “jibz”) is an old-time square-dance “super group” from rural Southwestern Wisconsin. The group focuses on the regional old-time traditions of the Upper Midwest, including tunes from Wisconsin’s Kickapoo and Mississippi River bottomlands. Iron Gibbs includes members of the Yellow-Bellied Sapsuckers (Nikki Grossman, fiddle and guitar; Joe Hart, guitar) and Kickapoo Joy Juice (Liz Voz, dance caller, fiddle, guitar, and pump organ; Jesse Downs, dance caller, fiddle, concertina, and banjo). Together, the foursome bring an infectious, upbeat, and refreshing energy to dances, where called dances for any experience level are interspersed with waltzes, schottisches, and other couple dances.
The floor will be completely open for dancing for the event.
