ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Moving Violations have a playful energy that transcends borders of countries and encourages spontaneity and improvisation. Driving double fiddle harmonies, strong rhythm, and occasional silliness prevail. Original compositions as well as Celtic, Eastern European, Swedish, Klezmer, and classical are all fair game for The Moving Violations.

The Moving Violations are a contra dance band based in New England that travels around the U.S. playing for dancing. The band released "Elasticity," its third CD, in 2014. You can find the band's schedule at www.TheMovingViolations.com.

"The Moving Violations presents another side of contra music, with a fusion approach that adds their arrangements of dance tunes from Scandanavia and Eastern Europe to contra's Anglo-Celtic framework, all played with affectionate abandon. Their smoothly layered sound is as diverse as their repertoire, as twin fiddles blend with various mixtures of piano, accordion, guitar, mandolin, banjo, bass, and percussion."
-- Tom Nelligan, Dirty Linen magazine

"This wonderfully talented quintet of players . . . revolutionized the New England dance scene by playing traditional tunes in strange and wonderful ways."
-- T.D. Sing Out magazine
