July 7 -- Janine Smith with Honeysuckle Rose (Liz Donaldson (piano), Andrea Hoag (fiddle), Paul Oorts (banjo, guitar, mandolin)). Their free flights of imagination are firmly grounded in many years of traditional playing, supported by a highly textured back-up.

July 14 -- Anna Rain calls to the fabulous Glen Echo Open Band. --This dance will be held in the breezy Bumper Car Pavilion!

July 21 -- Steve Gester with Cabaret Sauvignon (Andrea Hoag (fiddle), Karen Ashbrook (hammered dulcimer, flute), Paul Oorts (mandolin, accordion), Dave Weisler (piano, guitar)). This band is a party not a drink! With strong roots in European traditions, they have developed an original bouquet. See Cabaret Sauvignon.

July 28 -- Bob Isaacs calls to The Percolators ("CW" Abbott, Joe Herrmann, Joe Fallon, Larry Edelman, David Cahn (various combinations of fiddles, accordion, banjo, guitar, mandolin, and bass)). These musicians have not let distance come between them and a shared love of traditional music; friendships that began more than 25 years ago still bring them together for appreciative audiences around the country.
