Beverwyck String Band
From the CD notes: “Kristen Brunner Hislop, Britany Orlebecke and Peter Siegel met in Albany, New York in 1993 and have been playing together as the Beverwyck String Band ever since. Named after the 17th century Dutch town on the Hudson River that later became known as Albany, the band brings their energy and enthusiasm for traditional dance music to contra dances and events throughout the Northeast and beyond.”
The group finds it harder to get together since Kristen moved to Saratoga Springs and Peter to the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts, but various subsets get together on an irregular basis.
For some reason Amazon does not carry this CD except for an overpriced used copy. However fresh copies are available at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/beverwyck
