Callers and Bands

Callers for MMISL 2018

 Bands for MMISL 2018

Buddy System

Noah VanNorstrand’s driving rhythms and rocking style made the Great Bear Trio one of the hottest bands in the country. He is joined by Julie Vallimont of Nor’easter, well-known for her driving piano style.  Together, they bring wonderful creativity and amazing energy to the dance.

 

 

Uncle Farmer

Ben Schreiber on fiddle and Michael Sokolovsky on guitar are known for their original dance tunes, modern twists on Irish and New England favorites, and sets mixed with pop rhythms and improvisational flair. Ben got his start in Elsah IL at age 3, and started playing for dances about ten years later, first in Berea, KY, and later with the St Louis band Chicory. After college, Ben moved to the West coast, where he became an immediate sensation.  Michael, in addition to being an inspiring guitar player, is a well-known music workshop leader and dance organizer.
