Osgood, Jankiewicz and Wobus

Curt Osgood has been playing hammered dulcimer for over 30 years performing at numerous northeast venues, including at folk festivals, coffeehouses, arts councils, and more. He performs, teaches, leads workshops and facilitates jams.  Curt has been an official jam session host for over six years now at the annual Old Songs Festival held near Albany, NY and also for the Thanksgiving Dance weekend at Rochester, NY.  He appears regularly with several contradance ensembles; including Fancy That!, Strings on the Wind, and Rosies Ready Mix, (a past featured Saturday night dance band at Old Songs Festival). His bands have played numerous NY Dance series including Dance Flurry sponsored events at Saratoga Springs.  Osgood has released three music CD's and can be heard on other projects including Public Televisions documentary "Cornell, Birth of an American University". Curt plays banjo and guitar as well.

Henry Jankiewicz has been fiddling for over 40 years; he is renowned for his skills in numerous musical genres. His first exposure was in the 70s, with the first wave of the Irish folk revival in the States, when he and his band mates shadowed and studied under several prominent Celtic fiddlers. In the 80's Henry fiddled with the touring Cranberry Lake Jug Band. The band recorded three albums on Swallowtail and Kicking Mule Records--and appeared A Prairie Home Companion. Henry also appeared with  a 7 piece ensemble that specialized in traditional jazz music winning awards for his fiddle styling. He has recorded with numerous Northeast prominent folk performers. 

John Wobus plays piano for contradances and English Country Dances and enjoys accompanying Cape Breton and Quebecois fiddlers.  John also plays fiddle at Irish sessions and other jams.  His early-life piano lessons left him with most of the skill on that instrument.  He's played through the east and midwest, including Glen Echo, NEFFA, and Old Songs Festival as well as NYS contradance festivals in Rochester, Syracuse, and Binghamton.  Bands include Contranella, Crooked Sixpence, and Fancy
