BAND NEWS

Since early fall, I have been busy writing the music arrangements for my new band, "Doc Rolland's Americana String Ensemble", a 9 piece band plus two dancers.  Our scheduled summer tour consists of 22 concerts in 22 cities in large theaters in China,  from July 29 - September 3, 2014.  We will be presenting America's fiddle, folk, Celtic, cowboy, old-timey, bluegrass, trad jazz, Cajun, country and western swing heritage

America's folk, cowboy, old-timey, bluegrass, trad jazz, Cajun, country and western swing heritage.  The band combines the talents of 3 band leaders, 7 vocalists, 3 music teachers and two very talented students for this collaborative touring cultural presentation.  My companions for this journey are Igor Glenn (bass), Ron Privett and Annie Trimble (guitars), Ken Bucy (percussion), Nancy Bucy (clarinet & piano), Bryan Seegers (mandolin & bluegrass banjo), Giselle Lee (clawhammer banjo & fiddle), and Ben Shu (fiddle).  We are giving preview concerts in the Phoenix area, starting with a 2pm Sunday, May 18th concert at King of Glory Lutheran Church.  Tickets are $10 (children under 12 admitted free), available from me (peterrolland@cox.net) or at the door. Location: 2085 E. Southern Ave; Tempe, AZ 85282
