VanNorstrand and Tim Ball are two of upstate New York’s best and most versatile traditional musicians. As a duo, their music cuts a wide path through folks styles that have influenced them – from New England and Irish dance tunes to cowboy songs, bluegrass and old country music. Each is a fine fiddler, guitarist, singer, composer and arranger.
VAnNorstrand is best known for his work in Great Bear, his family band, which has pushed the boundaries and set the standard for modern contra dance music for more than 16 years.
Ball, from Ithaca, has been a staple of the contra dance and Irish music scenes in western New York for the better part of a decade and has toured widely with contra dance bands such as Tempest, Tunescape, O’Shanigans and many others.
