Thursday, July 3
6 – 8 p.m.
American music talents Barb Silverman, Rick Veras, Steve Rosen, and Mitch Straeffer bridge our country’s vast musical character with fiddle, banjo, guitar, bass, and washboard. Playing patriotic songs and more, the Silver Stars lend the flavor of the earliest American fiddle tunes through the hits of Stephen Foster and Irving Berlin to the last century of indigenous music. Dances will include contra lines of George Washington’s day and the high-stepping strut of the 1850s Cake Walk.
