About the Event
RACHEL BELL (accordion) has been gracing the stages of contra dance halls, concert venues and bal folk dances for many years. Pair Rachel up with pianist KAREN AXELROD, widely known for her lyrical and powerful English Country Dance playing, and you get Peregrine Road.
These two seasoned musicians provide an exhilarating dance experience infused with energy and variety. Vivacious reels, quirky French-influenced groove tunes, dreamy jigs, and fiery improvisations will keep your contra dance feet going all night long. At an English country dance, you'll soak up sounds that are beautifully matched to the dances, with just the right balance between finesse and zing.
In the concert setting, Peregrine Road ushers you into an ethereal musical space. Sit back and savor creative interpretations of passionate waltzes, mesmerizing French dances, lively American folk tunes, refined English Country dance tunes, and more. A touch of whimsical humor, and a sprinkling of vignettes will round out the experience.
