August 2: Category 5 and Eric Harris

Category 5 and Eric Harris

A collision of classical strings and African rhythms is just half of the musical storm blowing your way when Category 5 returns to Gainesville. The storm force builds with their high energy jigs and reels - a force to be reckoned with in air conditioned comfort.

Stirring up a storm in the caller's corner is Eric Harris, taking a turn from his other gig at Sea Life Orlando - spreading cheer and enthusiasm across the state.

Category 5 is: Sarah Mitchell on flute, hammered dulcimer, percussion, Kathie Aagaard on fiddle, John McEwen - Irish banjo, tenor guitar, percussion, David Massey - keyboard.
