Warren Argo here, to introduce two people who bring much to be excited about to the looming Fiddle Tunes week-long workshop.
Doc Denning is a living legend known to many who have delved into the sweetly American styles of "Western" music and cowboy swing. He sang with The Reinsmen and The Sons Of The Pioneers. He has played guitar for over 70 years. He has more stories than one can imagine. He will be spending the workshop week with Paul Anastasio, ultra-bright northwestern light on hot hot swing and jazz fiddle. Doc is extremely articulate and a fascinating conversationslist.
David Kaynor, dance and music ambassador from Massachusettes, will join us all to lead workshops in dance and dance fiddling. In addition to looking forward to his facility with American contradance styles, it is also exciting to consider the certain synergy between David’s considerable experience in making accessible the essential elements of Swedish dance and the presence of the mighty family-based band led by master Swedish fiddler Paul Dahlin, National Heritage Award winner.
There is still a we bit of room for workshop participants, so move quickly and register soon. And stay tuned for further developments and insider tips.
