Here’s lowdown on special hoedown

The legendary Chris Sanderson counted square dancing among his myriad talents and pastimes. “If you can walk, you can square dance,” he used to insist.

On Saturday, Sept. 24, the Sanderson Museum is inviting the public to experience the fun firsthand. Get ready to promenade down to historic Thornbury Farm from 1 to 4 p.m. for an old-fashioned Square Dance.

The museum has partnered with Thornbury Farm in remembrance of Sanderson’s love for both teaching and calling square dances. The popular Dixie Demons, comprised of alumni from Kennett High, will play tribute to the Pocopson Valley Boys, Sanderson’s former band, during this hoedown. A live dance caller will take Sanderson’s place on stage.

The Sanderson Square Dance will be held on Saturday, Sept. 24.

Thornbury Farm, which abuts Route 926, New Street and Thornbury Road in Thornbury Township, is the site of the final troop engagement of the Battle of Brandywine, the largest land battle of the American Revolution. Historic tours of the battle site will be available during the event, and visitors will be able to browse the farm property, visit with the beekeeper, or shop at one of the local artisan tables.

Tickets, which are available online or at the door, are $10 for adults, $5 for children under 12, and $25 per family. To purchase, visit http://www.thornburyfarmcsa.com. For questions, contact the Sanderson Museum at 610-388-6545.
