ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The “liveness” of acoustic music, and of the social scenes it’s played in, is presented warmly and skillfully with a real sense of theater -- listeners get a unique package of intricate improvisations, solid dance tunes, and plenty of good humor.

A natural and complex documentary fresh from the fields and old dance halls of Maine -- loaded with surprises and free-wheeling, robust traditional barn dance music.

Nuanced and vigorous fiddling is matched with bold, inventive guitar accompaniment, in a style founded on an older generation of dance musicians and flavored with each scenario’s spontaneity.

These CD covers are printed with vegetable inks on recycled paper.
