Traditional and contemporary folk dance music from France and Brittany. This session is for all musicians and all instruments. No prior experience in the genre is necessary. We will be playing dance tunes such as bourree, an dro, hanter dro, laride, valse, gavotte and more! The music is lively, exciting, and mysterious with great melodies and rhythms. And it’s easy to play! We will be playing from Balfolk Baltimore Tunebook #1 and Tunebook #2. Available in advance (PDF) or at the session (paper). If you have a favorite Balfolk tune, bring 10 copies. For more information or a copy of the tunebooks, contact Mark Vidor, 410-790-4072, mbvidor@aol.com Please note: This is a music session.
