Sassafras Stomp have been hanging out with the Fredlands for the last couple of days! Adam, Johanna...thank you for being such generous, kind, super-awesome human beings. (AND fantastic dance musicians who enthusiastically embrace old-time music played on a trombone.). Great dances in Brattleboro, VT and Concord, MA...can't wait for the next time I get to work with these two! #fbfeed (4 photos) ... See MoreSee Less
