The music will be provided by Eloise & Company which features the combined creative force of two of the country’s most sought-after dance musicians, Becky Tracy (fiddle) and Rachel Bell (accordion). They are joined by Owen Morrison (guitar) who will help the band crank out some great dance music with their dynamic playing.
