Known for his infectious energy, his short walk-thru's, and his 'hash-contras', Seth's warm enthusiasm is contagious, and gets everyone moving, smiling, and having a great time. Whether squares, contras, or other folk dances, you can be certain that all involved - novices and experienced dancers alike - will amble away happy and eager to dance more!
Vermont based trio Pete’s Posse is composed of acclaimed musician Pete Sutherland (fiddle, piano, banjo, melodica and vocals), his talented protégé Oliver Scanlon (fiddle, viola, mandolin, foot percussion and vocals) and the uber-dynamic Tristan Henderson (guitars, mandolin, jaw harp, foot percussion and vocals). Twin fiddles in tight, wild harmony over high-powered guitar and pounding footwork with mandolin, clawhammer banjo, jawharp and rocking keyboards adding their voices to the mix. Songs and tunes, old and new, lyrical and driving: that’s the multi-generational heart and mind of PETE’S POSSE, at work and at play. Pete’s Posse is three generations of musicians who have come together to create their own electrifying sound they call “multi-generational roots music.”
Also appearing is Bandáge à Trois: Eclectic, Danceable Tunes from Celtic Brittany, Wales, Ireland, Scotland, & England; and from France, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, North America, & more. With David Combs, accordion; Tom Goodwin, bass; & Kristi Austin, flute.
