Randy Miller of Alstead, NH, has played fiddle and piano at contra dances and Irish sessions nation-wide for more than 30 years. He has recorded four albums of traditional New England and Irish fiddle music. Randy is the dance fiddler for The Inn at East Hill Farm in Troy, NH, and is the owner of Fiddlecase Books (founded in 1973), a leading American tune-book publisher. He has led workshops at numerous festivals throughout the U.S. and has been designated a “Master Teacher of Contra Dance Music” by the N.H. State Council on the Arts.
Roger Kahle, a gifted guitar player noted for his use of DADGAD open tuning, is recognized as a top-notch accompanist for traditional fiddle music. Equally at home with Irish, Quebecois, and New England dance music, he combines colorful, lush chords with a remarkably steady beat. In addition to guitar and mandolin, Roger entertains as a foot percussionist. Roger Kahle is co-founder with Randy Miller of several weekly Irish music sessions in the Connecticut River Valley, and resides in Saxtons River, Vermont.
