Saturday Evening Waltz Party with Rodney Miller and Rebecca King – a benefit concert for NBCDS

November 21, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Rodney Miller (fiddle) and Rebecca King (piano) join forces for this special Saturday Evening Waltz Party — a benefit for North Bay Country Dance Society (NBCDS)!
Rodney Miller was designated a “Master Fiddler” in 1983 by the National Endowment for the Arts. He is widely considered to be the foremost exponent of New England style fiddling, a uniquely American blend of French Canadian and Celtic influences. Over the past 35 years, he has toured the U.S., British Isles, Australia and Denmark, performed and taught at hundreds of music and dance festivals, and recorded over fourteen fiddle albums. Rodney will be publishing his Collection of Original Fiddle Tunes this winter with written footnotes including anecdotes of inspiration and excerpts from prose and poetry and philosophies that have meaning to the writing of each tune. http://www.rodneymiller.net/

Rebecca King is a classically trained pianist with strong roots in Jazz and Folk Music. A sought – after musician for American Contra Dances and English Country Dances, her interpretations breathe strong, rhythmical energy and deeply moving grace. Rebecca King performs solo and with small ensembles, including the band Persons of Quality. https://www.rebeccakingmusic.com
