We're excited about our new concert series!
Music from all cultures will benefit Dorothy Ramon Learning Center. Our first concert will feature Bill Bell & Friends on Sunday, FEBRUARY 26,  from 3-5 p.m. The Center’s Gathering Hall, 127 N. San Gorgonio Ave., Banning, CA.
Join us for Celtic and American fiddle music.
From foot-stomping hoedowns to poignant airs, laments, and waltzes, Bill and his group interpret Irish, Scottish, and American melodies.

Bill began playing the fiddle after being inspired by his grandfather, a Texas farmer and fiddler.
Bill’s musical career has included composition, film scoring, and producing several recording projects.
Since moving to the Pass, Bill has concentrated on traditional fiddle music and is known locally as the “Fiddler of the Lincoln Shrine,” where he recorded a live CD of Civil War music, “Under the Dome.”
Bill also includes several original fiddle tunes in his concerts that draw on his family and musical roots. Joining Bill will be guitarists Dan Richardson and Paul Burton, cellist Eddie Young, and special guests.
$10 will help The Center Save & Share Southern California’s Native American Cultures, Languages, History, and Arts.
