Pure Quill
by Miller and McQuillen
Pure Quill is an old New England expression meaning "the genuine article...the real thing". Here you have it, with Rodney Miller, New England's foremost fiddler teamed with Bob McQuillen, legendary contra piano player and composer of over 1000 contra tunes. This recording captures the two as they might sound at the Peterborough, NH Town House on contra dance night. All that's missing is the merry clop of a few hundred feet. For McQuillen and Miller both, the secret to contra's continued vibrancy is that the future and the past are not adversaries, but fellow travelers. And the dance itself remains the greatest teacher.
