Dale Russ + Gallowglass - BIF 2021
Join us for an evening of lively tunes and sweet songs at the Sylvia Center for the Arts.

Dale Russ
Dale Russ started playing the fiddle in 1973 when first moving to Washington State from his native Connecticut. He is self-taught, which contributes to his abilities and renown as an excellent fiddle instructor. Dale taught for fifteen years at the Lark in the Morning Summer Camp in Mendocino. He has taught and performed at many workshops and music camps, including the Festival of American Fiddle Tunes in Port Townsend, Washington, The Swannanoa Gathering in Asheville, North Carolina,, and the Shasta Music Summit.  He has also played for ceilis, set dances and dance competitions for many years.

In 1990 he was invited to perform at the first Boston College Irish Music Festival "My Love is in America" featuring 16 of the finest Irish fiddle players living in the States. The concert was recorded and released by Green Linnet Records and won an award from the Smithsonian Institute as "Traditional Recording of the Year". He performed for 15 years with the traditional Irish band "The Suffering Gaels", appearing at the Milwaukee Irish Festival in 1993 and '94. In April of '96 he spent two weeks touring Japan with the then-newly-formed trio "Jody's Heaven", and has since returned to Japan yearly.  Currently he plays with Mike Saunders and Tom Creegan in the trio Crumac. He is featured in the Spring 1997 issue of Fiddler magazine.

Gallowglass is an acoustic Irish band from Bellingham, Washington. The band was formed on St Patricks Day Night March 17, 2014 by Jan Peters (vocals, harmonicas, bouzouki, guitar), Zach Bauman (vocals, mandolins), and David Lofgren (bodhrán, percussion). Having all heard of one another we met to jam after all the shows, festivities, and tune sessions in town and it was instant musical joy.

Now a four-piece ensemble with Mishon Kirkland (vocals, flute), the band has been playing small venues, festivals, weddings and other events in Bellingham and the surrounding area since their formation.

The Sylvia Center is joining other venues in asking for proof of vaccination or a negative test for audience members, as well as asking them to stay masked except when eating or drinking. Doors will open at 6pm, open seating.

Presented in conjunction with the Bellingham Irish Festival.
