ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
About the artists: Kate Fritz's original music draws inspiration from living Scottish, Irish, Cape Breton, and American old time music traditions. She grew up in the roots music scene of the Bay Area under the auspices of the San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers Club, directed by master fiddler Alasdair Fraser. As a teenager Kate went to Alasdair’s Valley of the Moon Scottish Fiddle school, where she learned from Liz Carroll, Darol Anger, Bruce Molsky, Martin Hayes, Steve Baughman and many others who continue to be great influences on her style. She travels annually as resident fiddler for the Gesundheit Institute’s humanitarian clown trip to Moscow and St Petersburg, Russia.

Tom Turino is a staple of the C-U roots music scene. You can see him playing in many area bands, including Euphor, Big Grove Zydeco, The Hathaways, YellowJacket Stringband, Matt&Tom Turino, and many more. He recently retired from the UofI's Music department, where he was a professor of Ethno- musicology for 30 years.

About the Album: EZRA’S HOUSE
...is the co-op house where Kate lived in Urbana, IL from 2011-2013. It is the place where she found time, space, and inspiration to write tunes, explore her fiddle style, and develop deep musical friendships. In this recording you can hear the textures of Kate and Tom's bowing, picking and strumming; it is raw and honest, as if they were sitting up late into the night with you sharing tunes. Ezra’s House is named for Kate's housemate, Ezra Shine Chynoweth, who turned two during the recording of this album. He sat perched outside the door of Kate's room while she was composing and said, “Kate! Play fiddle! Now!”. The results of those happy times are captured on the album, Ezra's House.
