Le Vent du Nord had never worked with an orchestra before. Dan Meyer was conducting the PSO for only the second time. And I had never in my life combined an amplified folk quartet featuring 4-part vocals, guitar, hurdy-gurdy, fiddle, accordion, bones and amplified step dancing with an 80 piece orchestra. Needless to say we had exactly one rehearsal. Trust me when I say that a lot of bonding has been going on over the last five days. I kid you not- I love the orchestra business.
