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.
December, 2014. Time for my semiannual update. The big news is that Goldcrest's new recording is almost here. After a year and a half of recording, editing, mixing, long-distance communication, and dealing with various unexpected roadblocks, we have sent the disc off to be replicated, and it should be available in early January. This recording is Goldcrest's first and long overdue. It's a companion CD to a new collection of dances written by caller and choreographer Joseph Pimentel, and I've written a very large fraction of the music on the recording. Look for The Goldcrest Collection and its bright yellow cover coming soon.
Some highlights of upcoming events I'm playing include:
In case you were expecting me to play the Atlanta English dance weekend, Fandango, in September, 2015, as I'd advertised earlier, please note that I had to postpone this for a year when my sister-in-law decided to get married that weekend.
In addition to dates above, there's the usual mix of contra dances, waltzes, and similar events. See my calendar for a full listing.
