Nightlife Highlights: Swing and Shine 

Swing and Shine

May 16. Get yer moonshine on! Dubbed "Swing and Shine," this dance at the Ashokan Center to benefit that institution's local schools fund and the Woodstock School of Art's Robert H. Angeloch Building Fund kicks off with a sumptuous, country-style, sit-down dinner prepared onsite by Ashokan staff and complemented by samples of small-batch artisanal New York State "apple shine." After the meal, torrid dancing will be facilitated via golden-age swing tunes served up by Jay Ungar and Molly Mason's rollicking band Swingology, with special guest vocalists Kate Pierson, Simi Stone, and Ruthy Ungar and guitar queen Cindy Cashdollar. (The Ashokan Scottish Fiddle and Cello Camp takes place May 1-3; Uke Fest occurs May 22-25.) 6pm. $125. Olivebridge. (845) 657-8333; Ashokancenter.org.
