The Greenpoint Autumn Square Dance, featuring the East Kentucky’s Clack Mountain String Band, takes place October 4 at The Lutheran Church of the Messiah, 129 Russell Street at Nassau Street in Greenpoint.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for a flatfoot dance workshop and square dance starts at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $5, and all ages are welcome.

Clack Mountain String Band and Virginia dance caller Julie Shepherd are coming north for this night of lively old-time music, dancing, hot cider and doughnuts.

On the forefront of a diverse and blossoming music scene in Morehead, Kentucky, Clack Mountain String Band consists of four core members: Karly Higgins, Jesse Wells, JT Cure and Brett Ratliff.

The group is vastly influenced by the mountains and rolling hills of East Kentucky and old-time master musicians like Lee Sexton, George Gibson, and their friend, the late fiddler Art Stamper.

Joining them will be MC and square dance caller Julie Shepherd, an accomplished dancer and banjo player, and guest fiddler Adrian Powell, both currently residing in Lexington, KY.
