The Floyd Contra Dance hosts David DiGiuseppe (accordion) and Pete Campbell (keyboard) on Saturday, March 8 for the monthly dance and concert. As part of the Chapel Hill contra dance band Footloose, the duo plays contemporary interpretations of traditional tunes with often complex arrangements, infusing Celtic reels and jigs, French bourees, or Cajun two steps with an added dimension. Expertly, they create high-energy music that really moves the crowd on the dance floor. Gaye Fifer from Charlottesville is calling.
In addition to three solo CD albums, David recently released two books of traditional tunes arranged for accordion published by Mel Bay Publications. 100 Tunes for Piano Accordion and 100 Irish Tunes for Piano Accordion are both extensive collection of reels, jigs, hornpipes and polkas.
