ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Simon Spalding was born and raised in San Francisco. For over 30 years, Simon has performed music in the American, European, and Asian traditions. Simon studied Ethnomusicology at UC Berkeley. He has performed sailor songs and traditional dance music throughout North America and Europe as a solo act and with a variety of folk and traditional music ensembles. His venues include festivals, museums, folk clubs, live theater, Renaissance fairs, films, recordings, and the decks of sailing vessels at sea. Simon’s primary instrument is the fiddle, but he performs with a stable of about 50 stringed instruments from around the world.
