Music will be performed by well-known local musicians. Mary DesRosiers is a New Hampshire native who has been calling traditional American dances for over thirty years. She has taught the contra and square dances and singing games of New England to audiences of all ages in town halls, schools and at music festivals around the country.
Fiddler Bo Bradham was one of the founding members of the well-known Greenfield Dance Band based in Massachusetts. He has studied with Mark O’Connor, Natalie MacMaster, and Martin Hayes. With roots in New England and the South, Bo succeeds at crossing of boundaries between different genres of music.
