JAMIE GANS
Jamie Gans came to Indiana from St. Paul, Minnesota, where he had established himself as one of the foremost fiddlers in the Northern Midwest. Adept at a variety of fiddle styles, Jamie has performed with some of the great players in Irish, Canadian, and Old Time music. In the 1980's, as a Canadian resident, he was a founding member of the Ontario-based group, Six Mile Bridge. The late, great Leo Browne, of Ottawa, was his fiddling mentor and introduced Jamie to the music of eastern Canada and Leo's native Irish County, Tyrone.
...
Jamie worked for five years as a historical interpreter for the Minnesota Historical Society. In 1993, he was named a Master Artist by the Minnesota State Arts Board and Historical Society for the Folk Arts Apprenticeship program. In 1995, Jamie joined forces with Tamara, exploring traditional music, song, and dance in depth. His love of history, combined with his soulful playing, bring the music alive in every setting. Jamie has fiddled for the legendary Northern Star Ceili Band, Milltown nGael, the nationally acclaimed Rhythm in Shoes and has performed throughout Europe and North America. He has at least four recordings to his credit and another project in the works. Jamie was named a 2001 Arts Council of Indianapolis Fellow! He can be heard almost every Tuesday night as the programer for Celtic Road Radio and on Saturdays for Rural Routes on Bloomington's community radio station, WFHB.

Those of you who were at the Saturday dance in Albuquerque with Jamie Gans and David Margolin playing know what a fine fiddler Jamie is. (David is too, for that matter!) But the rowdiness of dance sometimes overshadows the beauty of the music.

House Concert: Jamie Gans & Tamara Loewenthal (she'll provide the 'foot percussion')
...
This coming Saturday, December 9, Fiddle'n'Feet, composed of fiddler Jamie Gans and caller and dancer Tamara Loewenthal, are again visiting Santa Fe.
...
- Music workshop from 4:30 to 5:30: Jamie will focus on Irish and French Canadian fiddle music, taking into account the preferences of those present. Other instruments are presumably welcome.
Each workshop will cost $15, and both will be held at the Odd Fellows Hall, 1125 Cerrillos Road, across from the Highway Department building. For more information, contact Jamie at jagans@wfhb.org, or Tamara at tamara@bluemarble.net, or call them on their cell phone at 812-219-1890.
...
Then you can dance that evening (teaching/orientation at 7:30, dance from 8 to 11 p.m.) with calling by Tamara and music by Jamie and Santa Fe's own locally energetic Mark Sardella.
