Mon., Sept. 19 - Fusion Eclectic- Debut of a new style of playlist at Lenora's Room

This evening will be just dancing in the intimate atmosphere of Lenora's Room which has a great floor and spacious sound. We hope to have occasional dances here as part of Lenora's Room Monday night dance series put on by Dorothy Sharrar and Eric Singer.

The playlist for the evening will include blues, swing, tango (both traditional and alternative), world music, and of course, waltz. Those who have come to Blues Eclectic over the years should enjoy this playlist as well as those who have added tango to their repertoire. Although there will be considerable overlap between this playlist and the ones at Sunday Dance Eclectic, the difference will be that this playlist will encourage dancers to respond to changes in tempo and dynamics and to use melody more in structuring their dance. For more information. I will be posting playlists on the website before the dance to give dancers an idea of the music that will be played. Here is the link.

Larry Unger and Aubrey Knuth bring together traditional and contemporary acoustic music from around the world, creating a dynamic, swinging sound that is sure to get you on your feet. With Audrey on fiddle and Larry on guitar and banjo, their music is full of rhythmic drive and melodic candor. Their show is always new and exciting, presenting everything from traditional American and Celtic fiddle tunes to jazz, blues, and Larry’s original compositions (which have been Waltz Eclectic favorites for 20 years.
