DANCE FLURRY: Video Postcard

VIDEO POSTCARD from SARATOGA SPRINGS!!! We are at the epic Dance Flurry this weekend and, as always, amazed at the sight of hundreds of dancers! We had a blast playing on the main stage and debuted two original dance reels (Frosted Hinges/Reel de la Calavara- Koehler) and an old favorite (Wizard's Walk- Ungar). Thanks to Peter Davis and to our caller Steve Zakon-Anderson for this variation on "Shadrack's Delight" by Tony Parkes. We enjoyed playing, teaching workshops (Daniel lead a pretty great improv class full of fiddles, banjos, guitars & MORE!) and Gretchen loved jamming with friends! What a way to stay warm on a cold February weekend!

Wow! You make a LOT of music for just two people!

Lyrical. Impeccable. Up lifting.

Impeccable technique. Driving rhythm. A joy.

Fun, technically superb, with the warmth, passion and excitement that connects feet to the dance floor!
