New Mexico Folk Music & Dance Society • FolkMADS  

 
The New Mexico Folk Music and Dance Society - FolkMADS - is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to promoting and teaching traditional music and dance. FolkMADS sponsors Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Taos contra dances, Megabands, concerts, camps, and other special events.

 

 

The Santa Fe Megaband is a community Contra Dance Band open to the public which currently uses Fiddles, Mandolins, Guitars, Penny Whistles, and a Piano when we have a player.

Rehearsals are at the Odd Fellows Hall (1125 Cerrillos Rd, Santa Fe) from 7 to 9 pm on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month.

We play the 4th Saturday Contra Dances in Santa Fe on even numbered months, except in the fall.

Sheet music is used for convenience and we play from a Set List which changes slowly over time.

Contact Gary Papenhagen for more info, 505-242-1104.
