Welcome to Dave Wiesler's home page. Dave is one of the nation's
premier pianists for English, Scottish, and American country dance
and various forms of couple dance and ballroom dance.
We are nearing completion my long-overdue recording of waltzes commissioned by Jamie Platt. The mixing is done, and it's mostly mastered, just awaiting a title, artwork, and duplication. I am excited to be getting close. Long-time colleagues Alexander Mitchell, Paul Oorts, and Ralph Gordon (The Gigmeisters) have collaborated with me on this, and these musicians showcase my waltzes in a wonderful way. Stay tuned.
My tunes continue to get picked up by choreographers of English dance. A bunch will be in the next Barnes Book of ECD (Vol. 3). Here's video of the dance Orca, using my tune Phantom of the Operetta.
Highlights of upcoming events include:
In addition to dates above, there's the usual mix of contra dances, waltzes, and similar events. See my calendar for a full listing.
