Product Notes

Mary Cay Brass's piano flair is renownedin the thriving contra dance community of Northern New England. She is joined here by the best women musicians from the Connecticut Valley dance scene. The result is exhilaratingly melodic and merrily pulsing contra music at it's best. Playing tunes from Irish and Quebecois reels to a Scandinavian snoa and a Bulgarian kopanica, they celebrate the joy, vitality and diveristy of New England contra music. ---------------- THE BAND Mary Cay Brass - piano, accordion Becky Ashendon - upright bass Sarah Blair - fiddle Susan Conger - fiddle Mary Lea - fiddle Ann Percival - guitar Becky Tracy - fiddle -------------- GREEN MOUNTAIN Meet Mary Cay Brass, piano player, accordionist, choral director and New England contra dance's Queen of 'A-Ha!' She is a renowned fixture in the thriving dance community of Northern New England's Connecticut River Valley, where New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Vermont all huyg. But as dance pianist and director of several local choral groups, it is usually her job to make everybody else sound good. In it's splendid series of recordings by the best New England contra dance musicians, Great Meadow Music asked Brass to step out of her supporting role and take a few spins around the dance floor as soloist, arranger and producer, joined by some of her favorite women musicians from the Connecticut Valley dance scene. The result is robust, exhilaratingly melodic and merrily pulsing: contra music at it's best. And the 'A-Ha?' That is how fiddler Mary Lea, veteran of popular folk dance bands Yankee Ingenuity, Bare Neccessities, BLT and Orijent Express, describes what musicians and dancers alike love about Brass's music. 'Mary Cay has a lot of drama in her playing,' Lea says,'a great harmonic sense and sense of drive and groove. It really gives new life to the dance, sort of a musical 'A-Ha!'
