Burlington First Night, Montpelier Grange, Canada, NYC, and more!

We’re thrilled to announce that Frost and Fire will be playing the contra dance at Burlington’s First Night this year. Join us from 7-9 at Memorial Auditorium to balance the old year and swing into the new! We’ll let you know once we hear who the caller will be.
