First Friday Dance, August 7
We get to hear the great collection of hardanger fiddles that is Tinnfelen for the First Friday Dance on August 7th. Not only do they sport the largest collection of hardanger fiddles this side of the Mississippi, but they also have winds, guitar, and a bass, and some other instruments to give them a rich texture of sound. Don’t miss it! Teaching will start at 7:30 p.m., with Larry Reinert and Jennifer Roach teaching “Knut Arne’s Reinlender,” and you can bet that Tinnfelen will play plenty of reinlender so you can practice your new dance! The dance goes from 8:30 p.m. until 11 p.m.
Third Friday Dance, August 21
It’s a rare treat to hear Peter Michaelsen and Joe Finn show off their excellent twin fiddling, but you will enjoy the treat at the Third Friday Dance on August 21. You will get to dance to their “straight from Dalarna” sound, and you will wish the evening were twice as long! As a bonus, excellent instructors Don Meyers and Kathi Ploeger will be teaching at 7:30 p.m., with the dance following from 8:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. See you there!
