ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Tom Adler, David Margolin, Jim Mullany and Rob Pine all play in old-time string bands in New Mexico, their home state, and have played around the US and Mexico in a variety of guises and settings.

Adler, of The Fast Peso String Band, Margolin of Five Dog String Band and Mullany and Pine of The Nattering Nabobs play traditional Appalachian tunes from the revered masters of old-time fiddle and banjo music, but each has a "catalog" of original tunes they have made in the old-time style over the years.

"Sweet Nell" is an album of some of these original tunes.

The tunes on the CD reflect the variety found in old-time music and stylistic approach toward his instrument and tune making each musician has.

Tunes range from rowdy southern dance tunes, mountain modal tunes,a crooked tune or two and some rags to lovely waltzes, Celtic tinged New England dance tunes, a song and a novelty tune.

Each tunesmith plays the fiddle on all of his own tunes with the exception of Adler ( banjo and guitar ) who brought in Fast Peso fiddler Gary Ashkin to play on most of his banjo driven orignals.

Other guest performers on the album include Michael Kott on cello ( Plank Road String Band, Ace Weems and his Fat Meat Boys ), Richard Hardy on mandolin, mando-cello and mando-banjo and Jon Gagan on upright bass ( Ottmar Liebert and Luna Negra ).
