Swinging On The Gate

A great gift for your dancer and musician friends!

Swinging On
The Gate cover

A before breakfast discussion with Tee McDonald led to this wonderfully eclectic mix of fiddle music. Originally conceived as a showcase for the contra dance bands of BACDS, it now provides a tantalizing glimpse into the beautiful music of English country dance as well. Both styles touch my heart, along with the musicians who play them, and I am deeply grateful to BACDS for supporting this wonderful community.
--Rebecca King
