The Stringrays are a very popular band that have played at many dance events in the last few years.  They were among the most requested in the evaluations from 2017.  The band is led by Rodney Miller, who is widely considered to be the foremost exponent of the New England style of fiddling.  He and/or his band have toured the U.S. extensively as well as the British Isles, Australia and Denmark. Joining Rodney will be Max Newman on guitar, Stuart Kenney on bass and banjo, Sam Bartlett on mandolin and banjo, and Mark Hellenberg on percussion!

Lisa Greenleaf

Lisa Greenleaf is back by popular request!  She called for us with Rodney’s band in 2006, 2007 and 2017, and we are delighted that she can join us in 2019 with her lively, friendly and precise calling style and with her enormous wealth of exciting dances.

On Sunday evening, April 7, 2019, we will have a special “Brit with Brits” dance with the return of our popular 2015 and 2017 band Vertical Expression to add variety to our dance week.  They are Charley Roberts on fiddle, Ian Roberts on melodeon and feet, Ian Benton on guitar, and Margaret Benton on double-bass.

Quentin Fletcher

We are thrilled that once again Quentin Fletcher will be our sound master.  He has provided us with superior sound at all six of our previous dance weeks!
