Balkan Music &
Dance Workshops
Virtual Camp

While we regret the cancelation of both our Mendocino and Iroquois Springs workshops due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited to have presented our first-ever, completely online Virtual Camps, each with three days of immersive classes, live-music performances, and community gatherings. Virtual Camp West Coast (July 17-19, 2020) was a great success, with 350 people registered. Our East Coast Virtual Camp (August 14-16) is now complete, with over 380 attendees!

Registration is now closed for both camps. Stay tuned for more EEFC-sponsored virtual events & classes!

Varimezov Family Band

April 18, 2015 at 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Undisputed stars of Bulgarian Traditional Music, the Varimezov Family in concert. Bulgarian vocal music is one of the most captivating sounds of the world. At the apex of this tradition are Ivan and Tzvetanka Varimezov. In this rare appearance they are joined by daughters Radka and Tanya. They share the program with high voltage, folk-delicious yet avant garde Appalachian harmonies by moira smiley & VOCO quartet whose music is inspired by the Varimezov family.
