Alexandra Deis-Lauby & River Road

River Road

River Road is:

  • Jesse Ball – guitar, mandolin, foot percussion
  • Sarah-Hadley Yakir – fiddle
  • Kristin Planeaux – keyboard

River Road delivers beauty, power, and groove to contra dances with a highly revered mixture of contemporary and traditional tunes with strong influences from Quebecois, New England, & maritime traditions, featuring Sarah-Hadley Yakir on fiddle, Kristen Planeaux on piano, flute, and accordion, and Jesse Ball on mandolin, guitar, accordion, and foot percussion. While they are geographically divided by the Connecticut river, an aptly named River Road connects them to create an energy that is highly sought after in the contra dance scene. This phenomenal trio has taken New England by storm! Here’s a brief example on YouTube.

A NYC-based folk dancer, caller, teacher, and organizer, Alexandra Deis-Lauby is a contra dance caller who calls weekends and festivals all over the country. She tours, calling local dances for both contra and English Country Dance. Here is a sample of her contra calling:

  • Saturday 6-9 pm
