This year’s Music City Masquerade in Nashville could be the best ever, with two headliner bands - Genticorum from Quebec, an internationally known trio and the powerhouse duo, Buddy System, known for their great acoustic and electronic (techno) music. Joining them are two well loved callers, Steve Zakon-Anderson from New England and Nashville’s own, Susan Kevra. Join us in the beautifully decorated historic Cohn School in the heart of Nashville, with access to great restaurants, cafés, and shopping. Daytime activities include contras, squares, English country dancing, French dancing, blues, salsa, and music and calling workshops. Fun-filled evenings will feature both bands and callers, including a session of live-electronic contras! Saturday night is the big Music City Masquerade dance – costumes encouraged, though it’s fine to come as yourself! Visit our website for registration information: nashvillecountrydancers.org.
For more than a decade, Genticorum has been a fixture on the international world, traditional, folk & Celtic music circuit. Firmly rooted in the soil of their native Quebec, this dynamic trio incorporates today’s North American and European folk cultures into their music. They weave precise and intricate lines on fiddle and flute, call and response songs and achingly beautiful a capella songs in French, effervescent foot percussion and guitar and bass accompaniment into a big and jubilant musical feast. We are thrilled to welcome them to Vanderbilt for what will be an unforgettable night. Tickets at the door. Free with Vandy ID. $15 general admission. $5 full time non Vanderbilt students.
