March 22CONTRAFUMEric BlackSorceror's Apprentice (Lee Anne Welch, Joe Weed, Andy Imbrie, and the next generation of fiddlers!)
This very unusual band includes fiddlers ranging in age from 9 and up, all enjoying the interactive experience of playing for a dance. Dance musicians get energy from the dancers just like dancers get energy from the music. It's the kind of feedback we all like! We're very fortunate in the Bay Area to have some of the best dance musicians in the entire country, right in our neighborhood. Those wonderful musicians all started out somewhere, and this is one of the ways they get hooked on the great fun of playing for dancers. Come witness and encourage The Next Generation of contradance musicians!
