July 31, 2021 - Concert with GoodAIR (Andrea Hoag, Irene Myers, Rebecca Weiss!)
7 pm Pacific; 10 pm Eastern.
In-person in Seattle and streaming on Facebook. Email Rebecca at rebeccaroseweiss.com if questions arise.
Rebecca and Andrea have been playing twin fiddles together long enough to have become actual twins! They love lively New England and Quebecois tunes, the groove of southern old-time music, and the rich and mysterious sounds of Swedish fiddling. Rebecca has played for contra dances around the country and recorded on a variety of albums; she eagerly learns from elder musicians about community music and the old days and tunes, most recently as mentee and caregiver of David Kaynor, legendary New England dance caller and musician. Andrea is a Grammy nominee for her Swedish album Hambo in the Snow, has performed on NPR’s All Things Considered and Performance Today, and is an album producer as well as having recorded several albums of her own and with Maggie Sansone, Jacqueline Schwab, and others.
Irene and Andrea first played together in the band Norrsken (The Northern Lights) in the 80s, and have enjoyed sharing the intricacies and intimacies of Swedish fiddling ever since. Irene has also recorded albums with other Seattle groups she has performed with over the decades. She received “Diplom” recognition playing for the Zorn jury in Sweden.
All three are composers, harmonizers, teachers, and energy-generators. Fun and beauty ahead! (Maybe even some singing, and corny jokes!)
