Going Elsewhere
by The Clayfoot Strutters
Dave Grant, Peter Davis, Lee Blackwell, Pete Sutherland, Jeremiah McLane, and Mark Roberts

Way back in '89 Pete returned to his native Vermont from a long midwestern assignment to find his old pals and sometime-carpenters Lee and Jeremiah hard at work deconstructing their favorite Irish tunes and reassembling them with second and third world blueprints. It was a most intoxicating sound; and never one to stand idly by, he grabbed a hammer and joined in.

Weekly Burritio-fueled jam sessions followed through snow, sleet, and mud season where African, Appalachian, modal jazz and original folk-pop songs turned out to be similarly sturdy timber for the Clayfoot mill. The continuing outside adventures of the various musicians who arrived and departed this renegade unit served to stoke the perpetual cooking flame over which bubbled the group stew.

When the local contradancers' hips were observed moving in a most un-Yankee fashion, the Strutter era was truly ushered in.
