Definitely our most eclectic CD, we began recording The Rattlin' Bog two years ago hoping to capture the incredible energy our violinist Jonathan De Souza brought to the group, before his return to Canada. We were most fortunate to have our original amazing violinist, Paul Russell, rejoin us after Jonathan’s departure, and record the remaining tracks. Jonathan is featured on tracks 1,2,3,6,7,8, 9, 10 & 12; Paul is featured on tracks 4,5,9,11, & 14. By the miracle of modern technology, even though these two musicians have never met, both are recorded on the wild Finnish fiddle tune on track #9.
The album includes many of our most requested pieces, including bluegrass, gypsy jazz, swing, Celtic and even a Newfoundland folk tune! As always, our music is the synthesis of a lot of creative energy … and fun!
