Greek Night.jpg

 

“Greek Night” began as an informal get together at Laura and Sean’s house to play the music of Eastern Europe that members of the group learned at music workshops and while traveling in the Balkans. While the name is not quite accurate and should really be called “Balkan Music Night”, “Greek Night” sounds more fun, so it remains. 

The group loves the Rail Trail Cafe because it evokes memories of music and dance festivals many of the member have attended in Greece, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Serbia, Romania and Turkey. Featuring lively tunes in odd meters and unusual scales, the music is made for dancing and celebration. Dances will be taught and all are welcome to join in.
