Monterey Country Dance Community

Contra Dancing (and much more) in Monterey, California


As part of MCDC's Spring Fling weekend festivities, we're featuring a house concert spotlighting the diverse talents of Kevin Carr -- musician extraordinaire with the Hillbillies from Mars and Wake the Dead, as well as a gifted storyteller.


Kevin Carr will be presenting,
"Searching for True Gold."

What became of King Midas after the whole Gold fiasco? What is the oldest reed instrument in Europe, and why did Marsyas the Satyr wish he had a bagpipe instead? Should you ever trust a man who lives in a waterfall? What happens when you take Hungarian pipes to a party? And, after being kidnapped by Fairies, exactly what kind of pot of gold should one ask for? An evening of stories true and slightly true, with tunes and songs from several corners of Ireland, Norway, Hungary, Euskadi, Appalachia and Scotland. Kevin Carr has been telling stories and making music for decades, and a sweet, rousing, enchanting evening is guaranteed. Expect fiddles, banjo, and several small bagpipes.
