AACTMAD spokesperson Joan Hellman’s favorite dance styles are Scottish and contra, but “I am usually running the concert area, so I don’t get to see too much of the other areas,” Hellman confessed via e-mail. (The concert area is on Main Street between Washington and Liberty, and this year’s featured artists include The Millers, with Sheila Graziano; Laz of Gemini and Friends; Katseye; Annie and Rod Capps; and Hall and Morgan.)

The program schedule lists performers including the Dodworth Saxhorn Band, an Ann Arbor ensemble which uses antique brass valved horns and drums built between 1840 and 1880; the Michigan Argentine Tango Club; the jazz and swing of the II-V-I Orchestra; plus contra, Cajun, Charleston, and more.
