Music and Calling by Homespun Occasions
Come kick up your heels to live fiddle music. Enjoy a tradition of community dancing and music handed down from generation to generation. We play music and lead people of all ages (2 to 102), especially those who have not danced before, in easy-to-learn American barn-dance favorites: circles, squares, singing games and contras. While participation in the dancing is encouraged — and it’s hard to sit still — it’s fun to just listen to the music and watch too!
Peter, Paul & Aldo play an eclectic blend of high-energy traditional American (New England, Appalachian and African influenced), Celtic, and French-Canadian fiddle and banjo tunes that keep the toes tapping. The players and instruments are: Aldo Lavaggi (fiddle, feet & mandolin), Peter Davis (guitar, gourd banjo, clarinet, pennywhistle, and more), and Paul Rosenberg (recorder, caller and instructor).
The program is free and sponsored by the Library. You don’t need a partner to join in the fun. Photos courtesy of homespun.biz
