Mad Robin Ball
June 8 @ 2:00 pm - 11:00 pm$45
Caller: Andrew Shaw
Band: Persons of Quality: Rebecca King (piano), Jon Berger (violin), Jim Oakden (everything else)
This will be a special year as we bring back the amazing combination of Andrew Shaw of England and his California band Persons of Quality. Andrew is renowned for his reconstructions of dances of the late 17th and early 18th century, and for his extraordinary teaching. Persons of Quality, composed of Rebecca King, Jon Berger, and Jim Oakden, have worked closely with Andrew to produce recordings of the tunes to Andrew’s reconstructions, now featured on 3 CDs. These folks, separated by an ocean and continent, will be reunited at Mad Robin and magic will happen! Following the Saturday afternoon workshop and evening ball, we will continue Sunday with a potluck brunch and special Sebastopol dance to make it a full weekend of fun.
