Album Notes
Vermont-based fiddler/songwriter PETE SUTHERLAND has been a multi-faceted force in the trad and neo-trad folk music revival for two dozen years as player, collector, teacher, composer and record producer. A veteran of several old-time bands as well as touring and recording with the popular Sugar Hill / Windham Hill trio METAMORA in the 1980's, Sutherland has showcased his uniquely lyrical fiddle playing and rootsy songwriting on a small handful of recordings including "Poor Man's Dream" (originally released on Flying Fish Records), "A Clayfoot's Tale" and the recent fiddle collection "Streak O' Lean" (both on his own Epact label).

great album, great tunes, gets your feet tapping
I really enjoyed this CD. Lots of great tunes. Very well arranged allowing Pete's talents to come through. I liked his work with Metamora as well.

"Hymns, Hoedowns & Hair-Raisers"....exactly! Superb Fiddling.
This is a wonderfully done CD. Pete lists a variety of influences with his fiddling, and it really comes out in his fiddling ability. I'll be learning several of these tunes. I love the fact he plays in several different tunings. True Old Time Music by a real Old Time Musician.


Doesn't get any better!
No ants with my strawberries here! Both Pete and Colin McCaffery play effortlessly with a mindblowing selection of tunes. No fluff, just sweet playing.

David Brooks

Solid CD from great musician
Dan Levenson recently introduced me to some older Pete Sutherland records. Streak of Lean is leaner in that it features fiddle and guitar with no vocals or other instrumentation. Pure music. Pure enjoyment. I want more.
