Escape is Tim Ball on fiddle, Peter Blue on button accordion, nyckelharpa, and percussion, and Jodi Austin on keyboards and cowbell.

When Jodi has escaped from Escape (sorry), we sometimes play with Julie Vallimont on piano or Gail Blake on guitar. If you need more puns in your life, that's Alt-Escape.

We play cool music for contra dancing.

Escape is part of Tunescape... all 3 of us are members of that larger and only slightly crazier contra dance band.

In fact, we like to say that Rachel and Nadine put the "nut" in "Tunescape." And that we could "go nuts" at any time.

If you want to know more about who we are or when our gigs are, head over to the Tunescape website. We'll list ESCAPE! gigs over there.
