I'm glad that you found your way here. I have been performing traditional and vintage music for over 45 years. I am perhaps best known as a caller of square and contra dance, but I also have an international reputation as a composer of rounds. My musical compositions are for people I know and their situations and celebrations.
I see American traditional dance at its best as an expression of the individual in the context of a caring and creative community, and as a celebration of our ability to enter into such communities as we make our way through a fast-changing world. In my dance teaching I draw on my experience with the dances and children's games of the U.S.A., Quebec, and the British Isles to help contemporary communities express their "solidarity in diversity."
Ny latest edition of Rounds, Canons and Partner Songs. This includes all of the old favorites: Onawa's Waltz, Dance For the Nations, The Road is
Callin, and some new pieces as well. The smaller format has allowed me to drop the price by 20%.
