Where else would you rather spend your April Fool’s weekend than at The Dancing Fish dancing to the likes of Diane Silver of Asheville, NC and musicians like Party of Three, where you can dance like a perfect fool—and no one will even notice!

Diane Silver will transport you to contra dance heaven in no time. Her careful attention to dancers’ pace and progress, her ability to think on her feet, and her clear, efficient teaching of higher-level dances ensures fun for everyone in mixed-level groups.

Party of Three melds high energy and expressive Cape Breton & Scottish melodies with Latin, funky, and jazz grooves, bringing together three musicians from diverse musical backgrounds who share a depth of experience playing for dancing.

Combining high energy Scottish and Cape Breton fiddle music with Latin and Funk influenced piano and drum grooves, Party of Three has been enthusiastically received by dancers across the mid-Atlantic and northeast. Visit their website for artist profiles and samples of their recorded music.

Party of Three is:

  • Lilly Pearlman on fiddle;
  • Neil Pearlman on piano, mandolin and banjo, and
  • Joe Depaolo on drum set, doumbek and bodhran.
