Synopsis

Album Description
Sparkling fiddles, strong voices, and pounding feet join together in this compilation of lively dance tunes and poignant songs--the musical legacy of French-Canadians who immigrated to New England and became Franco-Americans. Recorded 1994-1998 at informal gatherings and songfests and in small studios in New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts and eastern New York, the music reveals the creativity and continuity in this unique regional tradition today. 57 minutes, 28 page booklet, map, and photos.
 

CD Reviews

Toe-tapping pleasure
Louise Dubrule | El Paso, TX USA | 07/23/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD features many songs from my French-Canadian heritage, but you don't have to know French to appreciate it. The melodies and rhythms are reminiscent of Celtic music. In fact, load your CD changer with this and a couple of Celtic CDs, hit 'shuffle' and you'll see that it fits seamlessly. This CD is a genuine joy."
