  • Traveling
  • Recording artist
  • Contras
  • Traditional Squares

I fiddle and call simultaneously, accompanied by a piano player or a guitarist. Currently, the regular dances I do each month are in West Newbury, VT (4th Saturdays), and Wentworth, NH (1st Fridays).

I started prompting/calling in 1991, the same year I started to play the fiddle; I also play piano for accompaniment of other fiddlers. My teacher was the late Harold Luce of Chelsea, VT. Primarily, I like eastern style squares, as you don't need to give a whole lot of instruction, and everyone can participate.

If it isn't fun, why do it?

Adam Boyce, whose family has called Vermont home since the 1760's, started playing the fiddle in 1991.  
He took lessons from his late mentor, nationally-recognized traditional Yankee fiddler Harold Luce
of Chelsea.  

Ever since that time, Adam has been involved with nearly every aspect of traditional New England
dancing and music, becoming a noted authority on its history.  Besides being a recognized traditional
fiddler himself, Adam also plays piano backup for other fiddlers, as well as fiddling and calling
simultaneously for square and contra dances.  

He also gives living history presentations to non-profit groups all over Vermont and New Hampshire, 
through the Humanities.

Adam lives in West Windsor, Vermont.
