Ackerbauer, Bill Old-timey ballads and blues History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
The Bentwood Rockers are an acoustic duo specializing in old-time country, hokum, Piedmont blues and traditional folk -- music from the early days of the recording industry. Between them, Bill Ackerbauer and Roland Vinyard play a variety of stringed instruments -- fiddle, guitars, many kinds of banjos, mandolin, autoharp, harmonica. They have a stage presence that is both casual and engaging, scholarly and humorous. Bill and Roland both live in New York’s beautiful Mohawk Valley. Performing as The Bentwood Rockers gives them a outlet for their mutual obsession with the sublime rustic-roots sounds of the 1920s and 30s. They pepper their concerts with historical anecdotes about the musicians, instruments and culture that produced the music we now consider 'vintage.'

Performing Arts- Dance
Come kick up your heels to live fiddle music! Enjoy a tradition of community dancing and music handed down from generation to generation. Everyone gets involved – from ages 2 to 102 (especially those who have not danced before) -- in easy-to-learn American barn dance favorites: circles, squares, contras, as well as folk dances from around the world, like Ireland, Russia, Turkey, Israel, Tahiti, Mexico, France, Scandinavia, China and Africa. The toe-tapping tunes consist of reels, jigs, polkas, hornpipes and waltzes. Instruments may include fiddle, banjo, flute, pennywhistle, clarinet, guitar, piano, recorder, percussion, and more. While participation in the dancing is encouraged -- it's hard to sit still -- it's also fun to just watch and listen to the music. This program helps children develop an awareness of our traditional way of life - when people lived without electricity and had to make their own entertainment - and discusses the origins, sounds and uses of traditional instruments. The Family Dance usually includes a short sit-down period to talk about the dancing, music, instruments, and cultures. Here's a video sample of a family dance: http://homespun.biz/interfamilydance.htm
