Tunes From the Woods
Devil’s Dream [Mackenzie Lerchen and Talbert Stein (twin fiddles) and Ryan Blankenship (guitar)] is excited to present its debut CD, "Tunes from the Woods". Special guest, David Mosher, recorded the music in his studio ("By the Lake Studio") in Brighton, Michigan and contributed a number of the musical parts on various instruments for the new CD. The CD has 32 original, lively jigs, reels, and waltzes in the Celtic and bluegrass veins with some blues, Klezmer, and classical elements, enhanced by rich twin-fiddle melody and harmony, backed by guitar, mandolin, upright bass, concertina, and a third fiddle. The tunes were all composed by Talbert Stein and recently published in his book of 40 tunes, Tunes from the Woods.
