Sparrows in the Buckthorn
by Pig's Eye Landing
Andrea Earley, Tim Reese, Erik "Puck" Peterson, Amy Sandeen

Sparrows in the Buckthorn marks a turning point in the evolution of Pig's Eye Landing. The band started in 1992 as a group of folkies at Macalester College, but 1997 saw the departure of both Erik Sessions and Scott Spencer, the last of the original "Pigs". While much has changed about the band, a great deal has stayed the same. We still find energy and inspiration from a hall full of dancers, play a wild mix of tunes and styles, and love playing together. We'd like to dedicate this recording to the many Pigs who have gone on to greener pastures and cleaner sties, and to Carol Ormand, caller extraordinaire and Pig Emeritus with whom we've shared many a dance and travelling adventure.
