I had a fantastic time teaching at Maine Fiddle Camp and Ashokan Music Camps Northern Week this summer, wrapped things up with the ever poplular Brattleboro Dawn Dance, and have been back in Maine teaching music and playing for early fall dances and weddings.
Mid September brought my band Riptide to Northern California for the Echo Summit Dance Camp along with The Great Bear Trio and callers Gaye Fifer and Sarah VanNorstrand. Frigate has been making music at Treworgy Orchards in Levant, and at the end of October, Riptide will travel to Seattle, WA for the Dancing Fool Dance weekend.
Some of my favorite times playing are at regular dance in New England in the fall. The air is cooler, and people are home with their communities ready to dance. Hopefully I’ll see you at a dance in Concord, Rehoboth, Portland, Greenfield, or Montpelier soon.
