The Dead Sea Squirrels is a versatile band that plays the traditional music of the American South, they play a combination of standard and original arrangements presented in an engaging and upbeat performance style.
They tend to push the boundaries of the southern style with fiddle and fiddle/guitar harmonies. Since they are also dancers, they understand the importance of the interaction between dancers and musicians, and how to use rhythm and dynamics to augment the feel and excitement of a dance.  The band includes Cathy Mason on fiddle, Craig Edwards on fiddle, banjo, button accordion, guitar, mandolin and vocals, and Henry Yoshimura on guitar.

and for those of you who do…
Adina Gordon finds an outlet for her loves of travel, music, dance and silliness by calling and dancing throughout the US and Canada, creating joy and minor chaos wherever she goes. Combining a voice that makes you want to do what she says with a commitment to using that power for good and not evil, Adina calls contra, English and squares both old and new that cause spontaneous eruptions of joy on dance floors. Based in Burlington, VT, Adina has called dances in 37 US states spanning all six American time zones, as well as 3 Canadian provinces and Israel. Dancers frequently remark on Adina’s energy and joy, which is both highly evident and highly contagious. She believes that when it comes to dance, If you’re laughing and smiling, you’re doing it right.
