RSCDS Twin Cities Branch 42nd Annual Grand Ball
14 April 2018
Dance music by Paul Woodiel (fiddle) and special guest pianist from Oslo, Norway
Join the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society (RSCDS) Twin Cities at our Grand Ball and Dinner in the historic Sokol Hall in St. Paul. We are excited to welcome fiddler Paul Woodiel and a special guest pianist hailing all the way from Oslo, Norway.
Paul Woodiel's diverse freelance career finds him equally
at home playing in concert halls, theatres,recording studios, advertising jingles, and
community social dances. His mentor Leonard Bernstein called him "A first class performer who combines
spirituality with intellect." He has played RSCDS events for more than 30 years with pianist Susie Petrov and piper/flutist
Chris Layer under the moniker "Local Hero." Paul is delighted to perform in MN for the first
time since 1988, when he toured as the solo fiddler in the 25th Anniversary Broadway production of Fiddler on the Roof.
