Snow Snow Snow…

My appearance at the Rochester Contra Dance on the 25th was canceled, on account of the foot and a half of snow that the region received starting that afternoon. The dance went forward anyway, with musicians who didn’t have to drive so far to get there.

Hopefully the snow will not be so bad this upcoming Sunday (March 7), when I will be returning to Rochester to play with Jane Knoeck and Rachel Bell for the English Country dance again. Nadine Dyskant-Miller, the fabulous flautist in Tunescape and Confluence, will be playing a concerto with the Rochester Philharmonic Youth Orchestra earlier in the afternoon at Eastman Theater, which is two blocks from the English Country Dance. Come hear her fabulous music as well!

Closer to home, the O’Shanigans are playing at the Friday contra dance in Ithaca on March 5th. The dance starts at 8pm, and there’s a waltz jam before the dance, starting at 7pm. The ever popular “To Be Announced” is calling; I guess we’ll find out who it is when we show up…
