Dance Party with Barbelfish

October 23, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Alex’s Virtual Folk Arts Series presents:

Dance Party with Barbelfish Balkan Band

Barbelfish Balkan Band plays soul-stirring traditional music for dancing and listening from Eastern Europe and beyond, especially from Macedonia, Bulgaria and Greece. Exquisite melodies, soaring harmonies, driving rhythm, unusual instruments! Both in-person and live-streamed (the group’s first!)

For this performance, Barbelfish is Amy Self – clarinet, kaval, vocals; James Hoskins – gudulka (Bulgarian folk fiddle), cello, bouzouki, vocals; Julie Lancaster – tambura, accordion, vocals; Jesse Manno – percussion, vocals; Steve Mullins – tambura, guitar, mandolin, bouzouki, and special guest Laura Osterman, vocals.

We’re excited to present TWO ways to enjoy the concert:

  • Attend the live, in-person party at the Avalon. Proof of vaccination required for admission; masks required. Donation requested ($5 suggested) from those who are able, to defray the cost of the hall. No advance registration for the live party—just come down to the Avalon in time for the party. Many dances are easy to follow; there’s plenty of space to sit and watch if you prefer. Potluck snacks welcome! Doors open at 7:00.
  • Live-stream the concert on YouTube. A great option if you live too far away to attend in person or would like to enjoy the show from home. Attendance is free, but advance registration is required for the livestream; register at this link.
