Doo Dah Nights 2 Performers
Friday, July 7, 2017
7:15 pm – 7:30 Introductions and opening remarks
7:30 – 8:30 Dearest Home
Expressive vocals with rich, next-of-kin harmonies interweave with sprightly dance tunes, as Dearest Home recreates traditional American music. They perform a variety of Appalachian and other great American “old time” folk music. For Doo Dah Nights 2, this includes the works of Stephen Foster.
8:45 – 9:45 The Haygood Paisleys (playing for square dancing)
An old-time string band from Pittsburgh that specializes in square dance music. Pick, sing, swing your partner! They are the house band for the Steel City Squares, an organization that promotes the rich tradition of social dancing to live music.
10:00 – 11:00 Snoke & Savisky
What if Stephen Foster had grown up in Lawrenceville in the year 2017? Daniel Snoke and Michael Savisky take a stab at what his music might have sounded like, taking Foster’s music and lyrics and reconditioning them for a modern, skinny jeans wearing audience.
