Square dance caller Paul Silveria

There are plenty of ways to spend an evening in Vancouver: great restaurants, great music, great theatre, all of the usual suspects. But, one option that you may have overlooked is a good, old-time square dance. 

Paul Silveria is a seasoned square dance caller who presides over dances throughout the Pacific Northwest. His alter ego, Professor Banjo, performs a spirited live show for children.

Paul stopped by the studio to share his enthusiasm for all things old-time with guest host Margaret Gallagher.
