Re: Excited States

StringFire!’s second album.
http://www.stringfire.org/

They are:
Erik Ievins (bass/cello)
Patti Cobb (piano)
James MacQueen (fiddle)
Caroline McCaskey (fiddle)
Annie Turano (fiddle)

On this album, many of the tunes are played like in Scottish contradance sets: 4 tunes, 1 pass through each of them, then back into the 2nd tune, the 3rd, the 4th, and finish with the 1st tune.

Many of their compositions can be found in their tunebook:
