Welcome to Dave Wiesler's home page. Dave is one of the nation's
premier pianists for country dances and various forms of ballroom dance.
Well, I've got my website back up, even if I haven't updated the design in over a decade now. (On the plus side, all my photos make me look a decade younger!)
My good friend Hanneke Cassel has just finished her newest recording (her sixth!) called Trip to Walden Pond. I'm again playing on a few tracks. We had two sellout crowds for her release concerts at Club Passim in Cambridge, MA, in April. Check out her site for upcoming concerts and ordering information.
I am just starting work on a long-overdue recording of some of my waltzes. Long-time colleagues Alexander Mitchell, Paul Oorts, and Ralph Gordon are collaborating with me on this, and we're getting lots of assistance from Jamie Platt, who commissioned all (!) of these waltzes from me over the past decade. Stay tuned.
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.
