    Nic Gareiss & Kellen Zakula

    Presented by at Club Passim

    November 26, 2011


    Nic Gareiss & Kellen Zakula

    Nic Gareiss has studied a broad variety of percussive movement forms from around the world. Nic has taught workshops in percussive dance techniques, American clogging, musicality and improvisation internationally. Through workshops Nic seeks to remind musicians of the crucial, intrinsic and historic place that percussive dance has held in the formation and development of fiddle traditions as well as reminding dancers of the innate musical capabilities of movement and the social responsibility they hold in maintaining fiddle and dance symbiosis. The Boston Herald said that “The nimble Gareiss called forth visions of Fred Astaire.”

    A native of Hibbing, Minnesota, Kellen Zakula draws from a diverse musical background including folk, indie rock, and classical idioms. He began his musical career as a fiddler, but it was during his last year in Colorado that he found his voice as a singer songwriter – utilizing fiddle, tenor guitar and claw hammer banjo for his original material. In the spring of 2008, Zakula relocated to Boston, MA, where he is an active member of the city's rich musical landscape, appearing with Brittany Haas of Crooked Still, Bridget Kearney and Mike Calabrese of Lake street Dive, Simon Chrisman of the Bee Eaters.
