DS&RS is a group of fifty or so music loving folks who play together every thursday from August to June. We meet in the Dell Farquharson Centre from 7:00 to 9:15pm. The musicians are mostly fiddlers playing predominantly traditional music but they are joined by others on double bass, keyboard, cello, mandolin, guitar, whistles and of course, accordion.
