Album Notes
Gus La Casse and Peter Lindquist met a few years ago when they were to play at a major convention center in Bangor, Maine. So far, so good. Gus was 12 years old at the time and already making a name for himself in the region playing traditional Celtic music. Peter, who is somewhat…okay…considerably older than Gus, had returned to Maine after many years “away” playing Americana and rock ‘n’ roll. As it happens, this big gig was to play intermissions and incidental music for a roller derby – a Celtic band with a surf guitar. It was memorable to say the least.

In August 2016, Gus and Peter reconnected for a few performances (more conventional this time) and things snowballed into a busy playing schedule and the record you are holding in your hands. In spite of two very different styles and perspectives, Gus and Peter come together in their high-energy playing and shared interest in finding the common threads among music styles and traditions.

The idea behind this album was to convey the feeling and energy of two people having fun playing music. To achieve this, the recordings are “live” with minimal edits or overdubs, selecting the most energetic and evocative takes.

Crows in the Field: Written by Gus and Peter, this tune was inspired by the old farm where this recording was made.
Kitchen Girl: This is a traditional set comprised of three reels called Kitchen Girl, Devil’s Dream and Mason’s Apron.
Coyotes Are Calling: Written by Peter, this is a dusty ride into the Old West.
Big Sciota Set: Peter introduced these Bluegrass tunes to Gus, who took them and ran.
Tidal Falls after 8:00: Gus played a gig made memorable with a beautiful sunset, tidal mud flats and a lot of mosquitos. Lots and lots of mosquitos…this tune was inspired by those mosquitos.
Let it Rain: Peter tells the story of boom and bust cycles in America.
Cobblestone Bridge: These jigs were written by Gus. They are called Cobblestone Bridge, Old Farm Riff, Tom and Laura’s, and Mark Sustic.
The Forgotten Dream: Gus couldn’t remember the story of his dream, but couldn’t get the theme music out of his head.
Cedar Swamp: Gus’ “Gus-isms” or genre-benders were inspired by life on Mount Desert Island. This set includes Cedar Swamp, Highseas and Mona’s.
I’m Coming Home: Returning home to a changed world after a long time away kindled Peter into writing this tune.
Slap Leather: This is Peter’s Western-movie inspired Bluegrass indulgence.
