The fifth annual English Trifle was a delight. To quote an attendee, “The music — its richness, sheer virtuosity and the interactions between and among each ever-changing set of players — is consistently, staggeringly awe-inspiring and a huge amount of fun and pleasure.”
Thank you to the excellent callers — Melissa Running, Gaye Fifer, and Dan Blim, and most especially to the wonderful musicians — Susan Brandt (flute), Tina Chancey (violin, viol da gamba), Liz Donaldson (keyboard), Ralph Gordon (cello), Jonathan Jensen (keyboard, ocarina, penny whistle), Paul Oorts (mandolin, banjo and more), Miranda Weinberg (violin), and Tom Wright (10-string mandolin). And, of course, Jamie Platt worked his sonic magic.
Thank you to all of the dancers! We hope you will consider coming again next year. The 2020 weekend will begin Saturday, May 23, 2020, so mark your calendars.
