- Phantom Power
- Lissa Schneckenburger on fiddle and Bruce Rosen on keyboard—Phantom Power is a high-energy New England contra dance band that has delighted and excited dancers across the U.S. Called a "world-class fiddler" by Sing Out, Lissa captures the driving rhythm and carefree joy of dance tunes old and new. On keyboard, Bruce delivers imaginative and sensitive accompaniment. "Phantom Power gives you dance music at its finest," says caller and dance choreographer Sue Rosen, who will be leading the dances. "Their playing lifts your spirits and your feet."
- The Ithaca-based fiddle/piano duo of classically trained musicians Tim Ball and Roberta Truscello, Contrapasso is in high demand for spirited contra and English country dances. Tim is a senior music major at Ithaca College, where he has been in many chamber music and jazz ensembles and symphony orchestras. Roberta has played for English country and contras throughout the region and has founded a host of bands, including The Free Radicals, Drosophila's Maggot, and Lost in Austen.
