Album Notes
Go Figure is the debut CD of this gang of four veterans in the Wisconsin Irish music and dance scene, and regulars at the Milwaukee Irish Fest dance stage for many years.

Four entire set dances, forty-six excellent session tunes, and twenty-two tracks played to lift your feet right off the ground. Collectors note: this is also the first recording for Irish set-dancing ever to be made in North America.

Who needs this CD?: All set dancers! Dancers needing gifts for friends that will encourage them to dance the sets. Dance teachers. Fans of Irish music who enjoy the atmosphere of the live dance. Musicians and those learning to play Irish dance music.

What else can you do with a dance CD?: Practice the sets in your head, in the car or at home. Practice your stepping and battering in private. Enjoy a dance with friends in your living room or kitchen. Mind the dresser.

Unique features:

* Four of the most popular sets danced in the US, and especially in Milwaukee - be prepared for your next trip to Irish Fest.
* Played at the exact tempos desired by the senior dancers of Milwaukee.
* Extra time (five seconds of silence) at the beginning of each track to allow you to start your CD player and get into your sets.
* Since we give you the exact bar counts, you can easily use these tracks for any set or ceili dance you like.
* Musicians among you will appreciate this clean recording of many of the best session tunes of the upper Midwest and even the world – see our ranking on the "Most-Cited Albums" chart.

Tracks 1-6 are for the Caledonian Set, 7-12 for the Plain Set, 13-16 for the Connemara Set, and for 17-22 the Sliabh Luachra Set.
