The Coming Dawn
by Nightingale
Becky Tracy, Jeremiah McLane, Keith Murphy

This is Nightingale's first CD, produced in 1994 (has is really been that long?). I consider Nightingale to be one of those influential groups that helped expand the envelope of contra dance music, introducing elements that put a new spin on old traditions. Traditional Irish tunes are interwoven with Acadian rhythms and music of the Canadian Maritime Provinces, then Jeremiah will kick in a little jazzy riff just to keep everyone on their toes. From this first CD it is plain to see why Nightingale has become so popular.
