Old Timey folks north of us in Nebraska

As part of my interest in Missouri Valley Fiddling and looking into the great fiddler, Bob Walters of Tekamah Ne. I discovered "new" groups of people who also love and play "Old Timey" music and they are not so far away.

In Avoca Nebraska, a small town in the southeast part of the state, a pair of musicians live and work teaching and playing. They like us are a reflection of the unique ethnic culture of the area.

Greenblatt and Seay live in a village size town and perform concerts and teach music. They teach a number of instruments and publish instructional books as well. They teach Swedish, Hungarian, Russian and Irish tunes that reflect the ethnic background of that area.

I have not met or heard them play. From the website, they are pretty similar to the folks at Lawrence Ks.

Check them out at

There are a number of folks that live in NE KS that might find an interest in a neighbor across the line and not that far north who puts on concerts and helps in the local fiddle contests.
