This album was recorded with a single audio technica 4033 microphone in March of 2010 in Lynne's backyard shack in Portland, Oregon. We are mainly a square dance band, but we play a lot of squirrelly crooked tunes, and we like to play them fast! We are also strongly influenced by traditional bluegrass as well as old country songs. "When I Loved You" was written by the Louvin Brothers, although we got our version mainly from Hazel Dickens & Alice Gerrard. "Golden Willow Tree" came from the Carter Family. The fiddle tunes come from various sources, many of them Sally learned from Greg Canote. The album covers were designed and hand-printed by Pilar McCracken. The front is a woodcut, the back is silk-screened with the text added by letterpress.
"The Northwest's hot square dance scene has multiple generations of old-time music fans bumping shoulders and spinning around the dance floor. It's exhilarating and exciting and just great to know that the old fiddle tunes are finding new life. We're especially excited about Rabbit Foot. This mostly-grrrl stringband absolutely rips on their instruments, with high-0ctane fiddle/banjo tunes played with surprising ferocity. Great stuff!"
