Desert Dancer Obit: Bob McQuillen, NH contra dance pianist-2014 (30) RE: Obit: Bob McQuillen, NH contra dance pianist 04 Feb 14

The Facebook page should be visible to others on FB... but if you're not, the Monadnock paper would linked by Allison would be the place to look. (A more lengthy remembrance article is due on Thursday, they say.)

Many of the remembrances on the FB page are from students and community members that knew him, as well as the contra dance community. He was a high school shop teacher in Peterborough, New Hampshire.

He was honored with a National Heritage Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts in 2002. Their page has an interview and a couple sound files, here.

There are plenty of videos on YouTube for anyone who is not familiar with Bob. Also, here is a wonderful profile (not YouTube) by Susanna Bolle Bob McQuillen.

I'm so happy that I was able to overlap with him at a few dance weekends and festivals, as well as feeling the many ripples he made in the pool.
