Alberta Ukes to dance at the Smithsonian

Brian Cherwick of Kubasonics fame just informed me that he is working on a project for the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC.

The Smithsonian Institute's annual Folklife Festival is featuring Alberta as one of their focus topics. Brian is putting together a program of old-time Ukrainian music and dancing. He and his team are re-creating a Ukrainian dance party with musicians playing old style music and dancers who will teach the audience social dances that were popular among Ukrainians in Alberta.

The festival will take place June 30-July 11, 2006. For general information about the Festival check their website .

For more specific info about the Ukrainian component, stay tuned!
