Summit School, in conjunction with Young Tradition Vermont, is pleased to welcome -CROWFOOT in a WORKSHOP, ON JANUARY 27TH
1/27/13 at the Capital City Grange in Montpelier
12 noon to 2pm, presented by Young Tradition Vermont and the Summit School
Crowfoot weaves musical influences from England, Ireland, Quebec, and the Appalachian Mountains into a captivating fusion that delights dancers and listeners alike. Into this meeting ground of traditions, they incorporate their own distinctive original compositions and songs.
Crowfoot originated in 2003, after a fortuitous meeting at a festival in Boston. They soon after became a touring band, playing throughout the US, Canada, and the UK. They have gained a reputation both on the concert stage and on the contra dance circuit for their trance-like grooves, subtle interplay, and unstoppable energy.
On the concert stage, rich vocal harmonies, haunting songs, and finely crafted instrumental arrangements compliment their infectious dance energy. Their diversity of instrumentation allows for a wide palette of sound, and audience members are consistently won over by the depth and variety of Crowfoot’s musical experience.
YTV and the Summit School are joining forces to help present a workshop with the popular band Crowfoot, prior to a family dance they will be doing with the Irregulars that same afternoon, and then an evening benefit dance (supporting the Capitol City Grange), all in the same location. Some of the proceeds will benefit the Summit School. The workshop is designed for everyone, adults or youth. YTV support allows young musicians to participate at no cost....... you must reserve through YTV for the free option.
