Album Notes
Live recordings of original fiddle compositions, with the sprightly Kittlish trio’s viola, cittern, guitar, percussion and jaw harp. Hoffman’s imaginative, narrative and earthy approach to composing gives her tunes an inner life and engaging personalities, while grounding them in rhythms and phrasing which traditional dancers enjoy.

"Hoffman … plays a fine, rhythmically charged fiddle informed by time spent with Don Roy and other Maine fiddle monsters. Her original fiddle tunes … are beautiful and authentic, and make great contra dance and/or kitchen music." -- Will Gottlieb, reviewer for Maine's Coastal Journal

Combining a natural warmth and enthusiasm with insightful and creative musicianship, Hope Hoffman & Kittlish trio take old tunes on enchanting, detailed adventures and new tunes to delighted audiences and dancers.
