Radio Riel is proud to present 2 days (Saturday, December 29 and Sunday, December 30) of music that was given to us as a generous gift from the Caledon Library! Our dear friends have provided us with 14 hours of English country dance music, performed by the renowned American ECD Instrumental Quartet, Bare Necessities.
Bare Necessities began playing professionally in 1978 for the Country Dance Society Boston Centre , and they are now known worldwide for their unique presentation of English country dance music. The Band retains its four original members:
- Earl Gaddis (violin and viola, left stereo channel)
- Mary Lea (violin and viola, right stereo channel)
- Peter Barnes (flute, whistles and oboe)
- Jacqueline Schwab (piano)
