Album Notes
John and Heidi Cerrigione live in Ellington, Connecticut and enjoy playing old time music and collecting songs. In addition to playing with Doofus, they also perform as a duo for dinner parties, business receptions and outdoor gatherings.

John plays guitar, banjo, mandolin, autoharp and bass while Heidi plays autoharp, piano, hammered and mountain dulcimers. Heidi also teaches autoharp, hammered and mountain dulcimer, and is a regular contributor to the Autoharp Quarterly and the Dulcimer Players News.

Released in 2006, “Winter’s Turning” is John & Heidi's 2nd duet recording. A relaxing selection of family favorites and songs they wanted to share. Selections include 10 instrumentals and 10 vocals featuring mountain and hammered dulcimer, autoharp and guitar.

...and 1/2 ... Sensitivity to nuance fills the music with just the right amount
Playing Time – 66:17 -- This generous album of over an hour’s worth of traditional music features some beautiful harmony singing and a variety of acoustic instruments. This relaxing set equitably offers ten instrumentals and ten vocals. From Connecticut, John and Heidi Cerrigione understand the importance of leaving space in their music in order for it to breathe. Using autoharp, hammered dulcimer, mountain dulcimer, guitar, banjo, piano, accordion, and bass, they develop a delicate sense of balance. It is their sensitivity to nuance that fills their music with just the right amount of tone, volume, rhythm and tension. That is best explanation as to why this celebration of song is so successful. Study the way that John and Heidi use sonic colors to produce various feelings on their canvas. While the project could have been enhanced with more moderate tempo’ed pieces (like “Featherbed” and “Bim chlinne Fochsli”) for added diversity and contrast, “Winter’s Turning” is still a sound painting of very special quality. Referring to their repertoire as a “simple brand of old-time acoustic music,” they are actually modest song carriers who are playing a large part in keeping the music of a bygone era vibrant and alive. (Joe Ross, Roseburg, OR.)

I'd intended to write a review of this album over a year ago, when I first bought it, but was prevented by a medical mishap, and long recovery, but now I can--There aren't kind words enough to describe how joyful, hopeful, and loving John and Heidi's music is, and how it has uplifted and inspired me. This album was my introduction to them, but I intend to buy all eventually. I'm sorry your ratings go up to to 5 stars--it deserves a 10! Thank you!!!! I hope there will be many more.
