History

Bill Davis, Marcy Dubec, Bill Lewis amd Ted Miller search through dusty old library stacks, pore over old tomes, listen to old recordings, and work with older traditional musicians in their search for rare and unusual versions of songs. They frequently embellish shows with Australian or Scottish Ballads. They consider themselves to be historians and researchers as much as musicians.

The group derives its material from several different sources, so in a single performance you may hear romantic ballads, sea shantys and sailing songs, the intricate melodies of a slow aire, the mood and sense of history of the patriotic and rebel songs, the sentimental warmth of the Irish-American favorites, the infectious humor of the novelty and drinking songs, and the upbeat lift of the jigs and hornpipes. Their performance style is personal, powerful, unpredictable, traditional and thoroughly enjoyable.
