Synopsis

Album Description
A rich blend of Irish, Scottish, and French-Canadian fiddle tunes performed by New England fiddler Frank Ferrel, in the tradition of Boston's old Dudley Street dance halls of the 1930s, `40s and `50s. Accompanied on this recording by Hilda Chiasson-Cormier on piano and John Paul Cormier on guitar, he draws on music learned from the hundreds of old house party tapes, early commercial recordings, and manuscripts he's collected over the years, treating us to the sound and feel of Dudley Street, Boston's historic "Crossroads of Celtic Culture."
