I’ve played in a band called Frigate with Steve Muise and Fred White for about 10 years now. Last November we got together with our friend Rob Sylvain who does documentary sound (as well as performing with Steve in Boreal Tordu, and other musical projects), and recorded for a day. Everything was recorded live. The result was satisfying, and we produced a CD that was released just in time for Frigate’s tour of the Northeast in July. (Thanks to our friends Marc Bartholomew at Acadia Recording, and the folks at Benchmark Multimedia in Biddeford for making that all happen in time!)
The finished CD can be purchased directly from us for $15 at the dances we play, sent through US Postal for $18 (including shipping) if you want to send me a check, or online thru CD Baby. You can also download a digital copy from CD Baby, and eventually, Itunes if you prefer to avoid collecting jewel cases.
It includes many of the sets we play for contradances, as well as some original tunes by Steve Muise and myself. You can hear some samples online at the CD Baby website.
