In from the Cold
by KGB
Julie King, Claude Ginsburg, and Dave Bartley

KGB debuted in 1993 as a contra dance band; since then, we have periodically stretched our fingers and brains on the concert stage. Contra dance is a community dance form marooned in New England after the American Revolution and given new life in the past half-century. As it has revived and grown, the music played for the dances has diversified far beyond its traditional, fiddle-tune roots. KGB has contributed to that renaissance, composing new tunes and adding exotic flavors from our varied musical backgrounds. All pieces on this recording have been played by KGB at dances, but here they are given free reign. Along with the pulse of the dance you can hear rubato, breathing space, and plot twists that distinguish music for listening.

Also featured on In From the Cold are Mary DeFelice Bartley, Christina Wright
