We bring you
the delightful and distinctive sounds of these living traditions;
the strum of the banjo, the pluck of the mandolin and the
honey-with-lemon saw of the fiddle, as they interpret the joyful
rhythms of Celtic, Appalachian, folk, classical, jazz, Klezmer,
Cajun, Latin, African music... and more.
We can lead you in the steps; square, contra,
country or folk. Quadrille, swing, Cajun, African, Israeli, Latin
or any of more than 300 different dances.
We'll be your guide to these ageless forms and
times past - from England, Scotland, Ireland and France; Israel
and Africa, and from New England, Louisiana and the Native
MEMORIES, forever gleaming and glowing like the candle's flame,
