The Dusty Strings Dance Band

 

P1080421

 

If you’ve ever wanted to play for dancers (and spend your Thursdays with some really fun people) come join the Dusty Strings Dance Band! Most of our class time is be spent learning how to choose tunes for a medley, match them to dances, communicate with the caller and keep solid rhythm with your band mates at dance tempo, so this class is best suited for intermediate to advanced players able to learn the tunes on their own (recordings and sheet music provided). All the hard work pays off when you’re playing for your friends and family at the class dance in May. As fiddles generally take the lead in old time dance bands the class will be somewhat fiddle-focused, but all acoustic melody and backup instruments are welcome. Questions?

PLEASE NOTE: This is an open band and you are more than welcome to join at any time. The Winter/Spring session of the dance band class runs January-May and if you join us in March or April there will be a few things you’ve missed, but we’ll be happy to help catch you up as much as possible.
