Julie Metcalf, fiddler and violist, can often be spotted at contra and English dances in the Boston area, either on stage playing fiddle or on the dance floor. Coming from a family of musicians, she was encouraged to make music from an early age; Julie picked up the violin for the first time when she was 4 years old and has been playing ever since. Julie holds a degree in Violin Performance from Berklee College of Music,
Scott Higgs began dancing in college, and started teaching soon thereafter (when the knowledgeable dancers graduated !). For over 30 years he has traveled the world, calling contras and English country dances. From Seattle to Antwerp, dancers praise Scott’s engaging programs, dynamic presentation, and emphasis on fun.
At home, Scott is one of the co-founders and leaders of Renegade Morris, organizes an ECD series, and regularly appears at local contra and ECD events.
