ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
 Here you'll find a galaxy of tunes that reaches back to our joint and
individual early repertoires and arcs up to our most recent -- traditional
and recently composed tunes from the five corners of Scandinavia that made
their flight from Nordic longitudes to Pacific Northwest quadrants. Woven
among these are Pacific Northwest originals composed in the traditional vein
by individual Bopps.
  
In 1997 while Hale Bopp the comet was streaking across the sky, a newly
constellated group of Seattle musicians made its first appearance, at  the
spring Equinox Ball in Vancouver, BC.  Dubbed "American Currency"
for that event, they then needed a new name back home for their next performance and came up with "Counterfeit Bill & De Menthe Sisters.”  It was while walking across the parking lot after that dance, gazing up into the sky, that "Hale Bill & the Bopps" popped out as their third and final moniker.
  

The musicians in Hale Bill & the Bopps have  been on the local folk music
scene for an aggregate total of approximately 138 years (gasp). The groups they have performed in add up to a large portion of the Nordic music roster in the Puget Sound area, past and present:  The Bopps can be heard on the soundtrack of two documentaries on aspects of Puget Sound history, "Port Blakely:  Memories of a Mill Town" and "Finding Thea," a documentary on the life of Foss Maritime Company (Foss Tug) founder Thea Foss, both produced by Luna Productions (Lucy Ostrander and Nancy Healy).  www.findingthea.com
