Saturday, May 9
Nelson Town Hall
7:30 Beginner’s Workshop
8:00 – 11:30 – dance
Admission $8 / $6 for students and senior citizens
Local energy packet Jeff Petrovitch teams up with the amazing Dead Sea Squirrels:
Cathy Mason – fiddle,
Craig Edwards – fiddle and banjo,
Henry Yoshimura – guitar
The Dead Sea Squirrels is a string band with a twist. Our tunes come mainly from the Southern US, but because we play for contra dances, our repertoire is made up of danceable tunes arranged in medleys designed to closely match and enhance the movements of the particular contra dance being taught/called. We tend to push the boundaries of the southern style with spontaneous fiddle and fiddle/guitar harmonies.
This will be an amazing dance!
Here is a picture of Jeff playing the fiddle. We didn’t have a picture of the band so we have put this in for effect, but rest assured that Jeff will NOT be playing for this dance. So, we hope you’ll come, ’cause he’s a great caller.
