Folk, contra and traditional Dance Musicians and Leaders Leaders in Canada

Welcome visitor

This (optional) map includes “clickable” links to the those performers for whom the Dance Gypsy knows locations (or has anapproximation based on an educated guess). Clicking on a “dancer pin” takes you to the description of that performer. All performers matching your description (whether or not there is a known location) are included (in alphabetical order) below the map. You may click on a marker or scroll down to those listings without waiting for the map to complete. The back arrow will bring you back to the map.

Note that all locations are approximate — the intent is to aid you in finding nearby performers. At best, they locate the performer’s home town. They cannot be used to find an actual residential address.
