A holiday season extravaganza of a couple of Grammy-nominated musicians, a champion old-time fiddler sprinkled with a few multi-instrumentalists graces our Dec. 6 dance. The Quincy Qutups lays claim to over a hundred musician-years of entertaining pleasure.
Andy Kane is known for his easy instructional walk-throughs and sharing the groove with southern tunes. He has been a featured dance caller at Gamblefest, Pinewoods Music and Dance Camp, and the Florida Folk Festival.
The Quincy Qutups are Lloyd Baldwin on fiddle and banjo, Marion Lasley on guitar, Andy Thomas on fiddle, Kristi Hamilton on bass and Richard Hardy on mandolin, fiddle, guitar or bass.
