Cleveland Roller Mill Museum, Cleveland, NM USA


BENEFIT DANCE AT CLEVELAND ROLLER MILL MUSEUM scheduled: Saturday, August 4th at 7:30 PM. Don’t miss this Mill Dance at the historic Cleveland Roller Mill Museum. Proceeds benefit the Mill, which is the only flourmill of its size, and type that has been restored to operating condition in the southwestern United States.

The Rifters, one of New Mexico's premier country western dance bands is featured. The Rifters consist of Rod Taylor (guitar, mandolin, vocals), Don Richmond (guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo, pedal steel guitar, dobro, harmonica, vocals), and Jim Bradley (bass, vocals.) They play what might be described as “Southwestern Americana.” The years of playing country two-step, waltzes and an occasional polka to the dance crowds in their northern New Mexico homeland has given their music a toe-tapping rhythm that is engaging and undeniable.

This unique event includes a potluck on the lawn in front of the Mill prior to the start of the dance for those who would like to participate. There will be an outside dance floor set up. Free dance lessons are available prior to the dance. Following the dance there is informal picking and singing under the stars around a campfire. Details and driving to Follow:
