They danced with the Stately Oaks Vintage Dancers and the Atlanta Baroque Dancers for many years performing 18th and 19th century dances throughout the Atlanta area. When they relocated to Utah in 2006 and couldn't find a vintage dance group they felt they needed to share the charm and appeal of the antique dancing with Utah and so created Old Glory Vintage Dancers in 2007. They have been very well received at many functions along the Wasatch front teaching and performing the 1700's,1800's & early 1900's dances at private and public functions dressed in their historical attire. They also offer monthly Vintage Dance Classes and host a number of their own galas throughout the year. Please visit them on Facebook or OldGloryVintageDancers.com for more information.

Her repertoire of tales & shows includes myth, legend, folklore, fables, contemporary personal tales & original stories. She has a lively physical style and playful wit that endows the traditional tales with a sense of modern day relevance. Compared to raconteurs and solo performers, Clare uses the platform of story to create shows that are full of observational humour, social commentary, and epic journeys. Her vocal range and beautiful physicality makes her engaging for audiences of all ages. Donald Davis was born in a Southern Appalachian mountain world rich in stories. 'I didn't learn stories, I just absorbed them ,' he says as he recounts tales and more tales learned from a family of traditional storytellers who have lived on the same Western North Carolina land since 1781. Davis grew up hearing gentle fairy tales, simple and silly Jack tales, scary mountain lore, ancient Welsh and Scottish folktales, and-most importantly-nourishing true-to-life stories of his own neighbors and kin. For Donald, storytelling ',...is not what I do for a living...it is how I do all that I do while I am living.'

Anyone 14 and older, unless previous permission has been granted for younger people. You don’t need to bring a partner, although it is more enjoyable if you do.Why? Why not?? These dances will get your blood pumping, forehead glistening, heart full of joy and your belly laughing with glee! In a world that has forgotten their manners it’s wonderful to have some old fashioned fun acting like ladies and gentlemen. *About the Instructors: Kimberli and her husband, Tom, have been dancing since childhood and have been involved with vintage dancing in Georgia since 1995. They danced with the Stately Oaks Vintage Dancers and the Atlanta Baroque Dancers for many years performing 18th and 19th century dances throughout the Atlanta area. When they relocated to Utah in 2006 and couldn't find a vintage dance group they felt they needed to share the charm and appeal of the antique dancing with Utah and so created Old Glory Vintage Dancers in 2007. They have been very well received at many functions along the Wasatch front teaching and performing the 1700's,1800's & early 1900's dances at private and public functions dressed in their historical attire. They also offer monthly Vintage Dance Classes and host a number of their own galas throughout the year. Please visit them on Facebook or OldGloryVintageDancers.com for more information.

    7:00 PM to 9:00 PM - Viridian A, B, C & Amphitheater: Monika Jalili: Persian Songs of Love and Hope Singer, Monika Jalili, evokes a romantic, and at times, haunting sequence of emotions as she presents acoustic Iranian songs. She has dedicated considerable time and effort to preserving and paying tribute to the the work of Iranian composers whose careers were cut short by the Iranian revolution. The talented New York-born vocalist, originally trained in musical theater, shares her enchanting voice and love of Iranian poetry in a simple yet sincere presentation, which features songs in Persian, Azeri, English, and French. Jalili’s music incorporates traditional folk songs from several different regions in Iran, and has been described as a mixing of regional, microtonal Iranian music; Mediterranean sounds; and French romanticism. Many of her songs come from the period of great artistic exploration before the fall of the Shah. The library's Viridian Event Center and Excellence in the Community present the 'Excellence in the Community Concerts', free performances each month that feature local, high quality musicians of various styles and genres.
