About the Presentation

Join Tom Pixton (accordion, vocals), Julia Poirier (guitar, vocals) and the Folk Arts Center as we present our first live music dance workshop of the socially distanced era via Zoom.

About Tom and Julia

Tom and Julia have been playing for International Folk Dance for more than twenty years. In this workshop, they’ll play some of your favorite dances and provide some commentary on playing for dance. To respect social distancing, they will be in different locations in the same studio, connected to a common audio mix to avoid latency.

The Program

This workshop is intended for the general IFD audience, but will include comments and insights on live music performance practice. The repertoire will be drawn mostly from the Pinewoods International Collection, available at the FAC online Music Store.
