A Day At The Lake

Just attended a house concert with Anita MacDonald (fiddle), Ben Miller (lowland pipes) and Tysen Chen (piano). Anita sang in gaelic and step danced to mix it up a bit. Really enjoyed it.

They are joined on this album by Tristan Henderson and Dominique Dodge.

Title comes from the fact that they recorded the entire CD in a single day at a lake location. Note that there is no tune entitled Day at the Lake, as it didn’t make the cut. They played it at the concert, so look for it on another CD in the future.
