English country dancing on Monday evening was accompanied by a live "band". These are top notch musicians whose concerts I attend throughout the year. It's fun to see them jamming together.
Tuesday night's cabaret is a combination of serious music, fun and is an opportunity to see people perform. Olivier Brault, a spectacular baroque violinist (concert master of Apollo's Fire and frequent player with Montreal based groups), treated us to a suite of dances that he composed, based on a French Canadian tune. Others treated us to songs, drumming, and instrumental pieces.
