Dwight Lamb (Onawa, IA) is a master of Danish fiddle and accordion traditions, as well as Missouri Valley old-time fiddling. This manner of playing and repertoire is both melodically complex and technically demanding. With more than 60 years’ commitment to collection, recording, preservation, and teaching, he is a fourth-generation fiddler and button accordion player.
Bill Peterson (Canton, SD) has been studying and playing traditional fiddle music for over 30 years, exploring Scandinavian, Celtic and other styles. In the early 2000s, he had an apprenticeship with Dwight Lamb and became fascinated with learning all he could about the regional tradition. He visits with Dwight monthly, arranging performances and teaching gigs.
John Everist (Brandon, SD) plays guitar, banjo and concertina. His roots go back to Ireland; his ancestors settled in northeastern Nebraska. Along with Peterson, he is a member of the Sioux Falls Ceili Band, playing Irish music in the pure drop style. Much of their Irish repertoire comes from County Clare, where the concertina is very popular.
