Montville Project Volume 2

by Montville Project

As with Volume One, the goal in making this album is to present a selection of dance tunes with a variety of rhythms and meters that represent rock-solid basic repertoire of the New England dance tradition. These tunes have stood the test of time; many have been echoing in our dance halls for a century or more and continue to remain popular among contradance musicians. A newcomer to this music, aspiring to become conversant in a core of tunes that others know and play, would be well served by learning some or all of them. The tunes are played at a slower down learning tempo and notes on each tune are provided. 2009
