Salem College, Gretchen Caverly, Larry Unger, Caller Bree Kalb
Sunday, September 9, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
What an incredible dance evening! We are pleased to have Larry Unger and Gretchen Caverly for our musical entertainment!
Larry Unger has been a full-time musician since 1984 and has presented a diverse range of musical performances across the United States, Europe, and Scandinavia. Titled “master guitarist” by Dirty Linen, Unger has played with many top contra dance bands and has accompanied such fiddlers as Judy Hyman, Matt Glaser, and Lissa Schneckenburger. Larry’s original waltzes and fiddle tunes have been played and recorded by musicians around the world and can also be heard in the Ken Burns documentary, Our National Parks. Initially studying blues guitar with Etta Baker and John Jackson and later taking up the banjo and bass, Unger has become one of the most sought-after rhythm players in the country. He has a great breadth of understanding of traditional music to complement his considerable technical proficiency and enjoys telling stories about the origins of his music and the people who taught him.
Gretchen Caverly’s fiddle playing will carry you away with her precise yet freely interpreted melodies.
Our Caller will be Bree Kalb.
