Old World Charm School

Susan Kevra (clarinet)
Rachel Bell (accordion)
Karen Axelrod (piano)

Susan Kevra, Karen Axelrod, and Rachel Bell — known collectively as Old World Charm School — are equally at home playing contra dances, English country dances, French dances, and concerts, with Susan switching roles between caller and clarinetist/singer. In concert, the trio presents lively Quebecois songs, mesmerizing French village dance tunes, passionate waltzes, and exciting originals. In a dance setting, their music and calling strikes a delectable balance between energizing and idyllic. Best of all, these three simply love to play together, and that sense of joy and good humor is evident in every performance.
