An Afternoon with Frost and Fire
Sunday March 11, 3:30-5:30 p.m.
4334 Route 7, Ferrisburgh, VT 05456
The band Frost and Fire, having taken the local contra
dance scene by storm in recent months, will be presenting an intimate
acoustic concert in the historic setting of the Rokeby Museum.
Frost and Fire will present traditional Celtic and New England music,
together with many of their original tunes. Be prepared for infectious
enthusiasm, consummate musicianship and luscious arrangements, not to
mention the skirl of the pipes. The line-up includes Addison residents
Viveka Fox (fiddle & percussion) and Peter Macfarlane (fiddle, low
whistle & vocals) of the well-known local band Atlantic Crossing. They
are joined by Aaron Marcus from Montpelier (piano, concertina, banjo,
vocals & feet) of The Turning Stile and Giant Robot Dance, and Hollis
Easter from Potsdam, NY (flute, whistles, bagpipes, guitar & vocals),
formerly of the National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland. All four
musicians are inspired by the joy of sharing the music which they

Perched on a hill overlooking the Champlain Valley, Rokeby Museum
provides an intimate record of two centuries of Vermont family life
and agriculture. It was home to four generations of Robinsons—a
remarkable family of Quakers, farmers, abolitionists, authors, and
artists. Today, listed as a National Historic Landmark, the site tells
two stories simultaneously — of the Robinsons in particular, and more
broadly, of Vermont and New England social history from the 1790s to
1961. Caretaker of the Rokeby Museum is none other than contra dance
caller extraordinaire Mary Wesley!
Space at Rokeby is limited to 40 guests. To reserve seats for this
concert, please e-mail Peter at firstname.lastname@example.org and let him know
how many seats you want and the names of all guests in your party.
We hope you’ll join us for some great music in a lovely setting, and we look forward to seeing your faces and talking with you after the show!
