Fantasy at the Faire

Songs MusiciansSongbook – $15 –

This album contains many tunes which I have played at renaissance festivals and other venues for many years. The tunes range from dark and mysterious, to light, sprightly and danceable. They cover a time period from the mid-13th century until the 20th; and come from Eastern and Western Europe and the British Isles and Ireland. Styles range from classical, to celtic folk, English dance tunes, Italian Renaissance etc.

This album contains 33 tunes and was recorded in five different studios throughout the USA using area musicans most suited to certain tunes. It is my most diverse and longest album.
