Autumn winds a-blowin thru the fields unleash rhythm with melodies that follow in natural harmony. Echoing, amplifying and multiplying nature's cadence, 'Wind that Shakes the Barley', with the unique melody of hammered dulcimer will enchant dancers this October dance.
Tempering the blustering winds, calling our dances will be Jonathan King, Gainesville's own high energy dance caller.
Wind that Shakes the Barley is:
• Sarah Mitchell on hammered dulcimer, flute, tin whistle, and percussion;
• Bill Dudley on guitar;
• Kathie Aagaard on fiddle; and
• John McEwen on percussion, Irish banjo, and tenor guitar.
