Barn Dance with Live Music at Monticello’s Allerton Park

Wikipedia, that fount of all knowledge, says that a barn dance usually involves traditional or folk music and dancing, only occasionally in a barn. But Friday night you can take your dancing shoes to an actual barn at Allerton Park in Monticello for a genuine barn dance, with music provided, in order, by the youthful Bow-Dacious String Band, guitarist Sam Payne and Friends and a band called The Curses.
