"If Ken Burns has not yet heard this Pennsylvania Celtic-folk duo it's to PBS viewers' serious detriment. With their swooping fiddles, crisscrossing melodies and earthy percussion, Beverley Conrad and Luke Glick's gorgeous Appalachian blend reminds us where the word 'Americana' came from." Editor's Review C/Net

          The tunes on this CD are played using fiddle and drum, or fiddle and bones. Beverley Conrad, on fiddle, and Luke Glick on drums and bones.   Included are: Lost Indian; Rosin the Beau; Soldier's Joy and Liberty; Joys of Quebec; Jug of Jigs which includes Merrily Kiss the Quaker, Larry O'Graf and Beverley's Jig; Hills of Glenorchy; Miss Wedderburn's Reel; Loch Lomond and Flowers of Edinburgh; Big John Macneil; Bill Malley's Schottische; Bonaparte's Retreat; Durangue's Hornpipe and Sailor's Hornpipe; Farewell to Whiskey and Whiskey Before Breakfast; St. Anne's Reel and Opera Reel; Star of County Down ($12 USD + $4 shipping for US and Canada.  International orders please use shipping calculator.  CD package weighs about 6 ounces.)  Our album was recorded with the two of us standing on a rug in a recording studio.  One take.  No over dubs.  It's one fiddle and one drum or four bones.  What you hear on the album is what we sound like playing live.  The sound of "multiple fiddles" is what one fiddle can sound like when played using drones and double stops and tunings.

The Miner's Jig
Celtic and Oldtime Tunes from the Coal Region
     From the hills and valleys of the old world to the ridges and hollows of the new, as well as bringing the hopes and dreams of a better life, the Scots and the Irish brought music.  The tones, notes and techniques of the old homeland music mingled with the same of their new neighbors and the old songs took on a new flavor - familiar but unique.  Fiddles droned to capture the sound of the pipes.  Drums echoed - a piece of the old world and a reminder of the natives of the new.  If lyrics were sung, they echoed the present state and in this way many of the old traditional tunes became Americanized.  The tunes on this album played on fiddle and drum reflect this heritage and leave it to the listener to supply the words and the dance. Includes The Gary Owen, When Johnny Comes Marching Home, Bonny Blue Flag, Billy in the Lowground, Braes of Auchtertyre, Miner's Jig, Shebeg Shemore, St. Patrick's Day, Hector the Hero, The Butterfly, Kesh Jig - Swallowtail Jig, Archibald Macdonald of Keppoch, Eighth of January, Irish Washerwoman - Jig, Irish Washerwoman - Reel, Fisher's Hornpipe, Paddy Whack, Sweet Betsy from Pike, The Last Rose of Summer, McPherson's Farewell

Here is what one kind soul at C/Net said about our music:
     "Simplicity is the key! This duo is just taking us back to "Colony Days" and nothing could sound better to lead your imagination to a time when all was in the making and that "all" stands for America. If all that glitters can't be gold, all that doesn't might hide a nugget.The music talks for itself: it's genuine, unpretentiously rich with centuries of history as its background and honestly looking as young as a rose bud in April.
It's filled with strength without being imposing, it's soft and warm without being pathetic, it's colored with joy and hope and yet remindful of the sometime stormy days and months and years it went through before the sun showed up again to welcome its hopeful beats and melody. I love it so much for under its apparently "worn out" dress beats a heart as noble and rich as that of a satisfied mind. Rare to find any, nowadays. Real fine music!"  -ER Burritt
