Well I am posting out of order again. Oh well, just live with it if you can.
Scotia had an of Summer Dance party, with live music (Genny Vaughn -piano and Julia Hartman - violin) in honor of three teachers, the late Joan Treble, Shiela Wilson and Freddy Sverdlove. The dances sere all written by them, for them, a favorite of one of them or first learned from one of them. In other words a thematic program. So there were minor problems. A few too many 40 or 48 bar dances and sometimes one right next to another- Oh well.
The music was pretty darn good. Even with a occasionally functional sound system they had a decent balance. I do have a complaint, a relatively mild complaint. The tempos varied a bit. In Cadgers the tempo varied within some of the tunes, in a couple of strathspeys the tempo varied as the tunes changed. But not by much. It was always danceable. and only a few people even noticed. Thumbs up for this combo. I'd gladly hire them.
