Album Notes
Dirty Linen says, "...adventurous and lyrical... They have a unique style and approach, engaging original compositions... [Their CD] is a strong first impression for the Friedman sisters."

Ari and Mia are members of a dynamic up-and-coming folk band. Their music is all at once driving, uplifting and moving. Ari graduated from Northwestern University in 2008 where she studied cello performance with Hans Jorgen Jensen, and will graduate from New England Conservatory in 2011 with a Masters in Contemporary Improvisation. A winner of ASTA's 2009 Alternative Styles Award, she is an inventive cellist and, aside from playing in a band with Mia, she performs, tours, and records with Scottish National Fiddle champion Hanneke Cassel. She is also a member of the new Boston-based girl band, Long Time Courting, as well as New England's highly acclaimed fiddle band Childsplay. She teaches at various fiddle camps during the summer and has her own private studio. Mia is a talented fiddler, singer and banjo player studying at New England Conservatory's Contemporary Improvisation program. She won first place at the New England Regional Scottish Fiddle Champion in 2006 and performs around New England with various musicians. Both girls live in Boston. Ari and Mia perform mostly original and traditional music. Their main influences are Southern Appalachian, old-time, jazz, folk, celtic and bluegrass traditions.

Daniel Bohannon

This is one addicting album.
Throughout this album, the cello and fiddle intertwine with intriguing rhythms and sincere melodies that encapture the listener. A couple of tracks include the piano, guitar, and vocals, which are all wonderful additions to this album. This cd has been in my truck sterio for two weeks straight, and I have only grown more fond of it. I thank the Freedman family for recording their musical talents that they have obviously been blessed with. Happy playing!
