Join Tapestry Folk Dancers for the 2018
Each fall, Tapestry brings a guest master teacher to the Twin Cities for a full weekend of dance workshops, live music and cultural talks. The Fall International Weekend typically focuses on dance from a single country and attracts dancers from across the nation. Everyone is welcome, but experience with International folkdance is highly encouraged.
About the Band
Orkestar Bez Ime means “orchestra without a name” in Bulgarian. OBI was formed in 2002 and focuses on Eastern Europe and the music of the Roma (Gypsy) people. OBI’s repertoire of festive village music from Albania to the Ukraine has earned them numerous awards. Performers include Colleen Bertsch, Scott Keever, Matt Miller, Katrina Mundinger, Natalie Nowytski and Eric Ray.
