Album Notes
Pretty Little Feet's "The Mountain Runners" was written and recorded for use in the documentary film of the same name, which chronicles the incredible true story of America's first mountain endurance race. Pretty Little Feet's release is a 45-minute historical musical narrative of the settling of Whatcom County, Washington State, USA. The album begins with the arrival of prospectors in the late 1850s at the foot of Whatcom Creek, seeking gold in the Fraser Valley, and takes the listener through the subsequent establishment of coal mines, lumber mills, townships, railroads, and industry leading up to and through the boom years, the bust, to and through the consolidation and establishment of the city of Bellingham, and finally leading up to the 1911-13 Mount Baker Marathon, which is the focus of The Mountain Runners film.

Pretty Little Feet is comprised of two members, Matt Novak and Allegra Ziffle, an acoustic duo based in Bellingham, Washington. Matt and Allegra composed 11 out of the 15 tracks on the album, and the four others are traditional songs/tunes with subject matter or titles that are apt to the era and race. The instrumentation ranges from hurtling fiddle and ethereal violin, frailing banjo, driving guitar, the swash of accordion and mandolin, the tap of dancing feet, and garnishings of densely poetic songs of historical bent that simultaneously articulate and emote. Pretty Little Feet’s "The Mountain Runners" is sure to please those who are interested in the history of the United States or Puget Sound, as well as those who are simply fans of traditional old-time music.
