Live music! Peter Kasin, a superb fiddler and Susan Walsh, a great bodhran player with a stunning voice, are very popular musicians in the Bay Area. They are entertaining us with traditional Irish music, accompanied by John Slaymaker, Irish dance caller from the Starry Plough, who will lead us in learning a few Irish dance steps, so that we can dance and waltz the night away.
