Fiddledancemusic: Field Recordings in Maine 2006-2008

by Hope Hoffman

These field recordings let listeners in on the musical dialogue between fiddle and guitar, and also into the living rooms and dance halls where even more characters’ dialogue bounces between comic ruminations and the shouts, claps and stomps of dancers.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The “liveness” of acoustic music, and of the social scenes it’s played in, is presented warmly and skillfully with a real sense of theater -- listeners get a unique package of intricate improvisations, solid dance tunes, and plenty of good humor.

A natural and complex documentary fresh from the fields and old dance halls of Maine -- loaded with surprises and free-wheeling, robust traditional barn dance music.

Nuanced and vigorous fiddling is matched with bold, inventive guitar accompaniment, in a style founded on an older generation of dance musicians and flavored with each scenario’s spontaneity.

These CD covers are printed with vegetable inks on recycled paper.
