OLD-TIME MUSIC AND DANCE IN BLOOMINGTON: PAST & PRESENT
7pm | Unitarian Universalist Church, 2120 N. Fee Ln
Directed by Grey Larson, in honor of Bloomington’s bicentennial
Including the Hogwire Stringband, The Nailbenders, and Jamie Gans & Friends; dancers Abby Ladin, Tamara Loewenthal, and Malke Rosenfeld. MCCSC students will also participate, directed by Maggie Olivo.
In honor of Bloomington’s bicentennial, the Bloomington Early Music Festival will bring together leading instrumentalists, singers and dancers in a concert to celebrate old-time, rural-style folk music and dance traditions in our community. The free event will take place at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Bloomington on Sunday, May 20 at 7pm.
The featured bands will be Brad Leftwich and the Hogwire Stringband (with Sam Bartlett, Abby Ladin and Linda Higginbotham), The Nailbenders (Grey Larsen, Mark Feddersen and Cindy Kallet) and Jamie Gans & Friends (with Brad Leftwich, Sam Bartlett and Grey Larsen). Special guest Dillon Bustin will perform traditional old-time folk songs of Bloomington and the region. Tamara Loewenthal will call and demonstrate a contra/square dance with eight selected dancers and will encourage audience members to attend BOTMDG dance events. Abby Ladin, Tamara Loewenthal and Malke Rosenfeld will add their percussive dancing talents to the program. The evening will include The Nailbenders’ tribute to Joe Dawson (1928-2012), a Bloomington fiddler who for decades passed along his traditional Monroe/Brown County old-time musical legacy to members of the community. Fifth and sixth-grade violinists from the Fairview Elementary School string ensemble, led by Maggie Olivo, will also perform Joe Dawson’s music. Several speakers, including Dillon Bustin, Teri Klassen and Alan Burdette, will shed light upon local old-time music traditions, resources, and tradition-bearers such as fiddlers Lotus Dickey and Strawberry McLeod.
