ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
OLD NEW ENGLAND
THE BAND
Bob McQuillen - piano
Jane Orzechowski - fiddle
Deanna Stiles - flute
----------------
Old New England is contra at its most joyful and dancer-friendly, propelled by Bob McQuillen's famous "boom-chuck" piano style. Bob's melodic purity shines throughout this disc, which contains twenty-seven McQuillen originals, including the classic "Amelia's," and the achingly evocative "Eugene O'Donnell." With Jane Orzechowski and Deanna Stiles, Old New England provides top flight New England contra dance music.
Scott Alerik (more in the liner notes)
-----------------

"Bob McQuillen has been an inspiration to me since we met twenty-odd years ago. His generous nature, lover for the dance and its music, and ability on the keyboard combine to make him a national treasure. In Old New England, he joins forces with two members of my generation, whose talents complement his, and whose love for the tradition equals his. Long may they continue to bring joy to dancer's hearts, in New England and around the world!"
Tony Parkes
---------------

"Their roots go back to the days of Ralph Page, Duke Miller and Roger Whynot; they play straight-ahead, no frills, New England style music the old fashioned way, with great joy, love and respect for the tradition, and lots of harmonious energy. This album will be well received by the dance community.
Steve Zakon-Anderson
