Kerry Elkin
Dances in Celebration of Kerry Elkin


Come celebrate the musical contributions of one of New England’s finest dance fiddlers for the past 30 years, Kerry Elkin. Kerry has recently been forced to lay his fiddle down due to the progression of MS. Two Dances have been set up to celebrate Kerry and to raise money to benefit both Kerry and MS research.
