Our Giveaway Prize
Winner receives their choice of autographed CD from Mike Ferry Music
Estimated Retail Value $19
Toe-tapping fiddle tunes that celebrate the history and natural beauty of Virginia. Mike states, "I've long been a fan of Virginia's historical past and natural beauty. I wrote and recorded these fiddle tunes in honor of the state, and I hope that listeners will enjoy them." We sure have and are confident you will too!
The musical aesthetic of those early settlers permeates much of this album, from tunes such as Ducks on the Pond (a breakdown, first appearing in print in Virginia Reels, volume III Baltimore, 1839), Icy Mountain (a popular breakdown attributed to the West Virginian fiddler Frank Santy) and Soldier's Joy with an electronic didgeridoo calling the fiddle to action. These are dovetailed with tunes that we'd associate with the native Catholic Irish, who made the trans-Atlantic journey in their hundreds of thousands in the half-century after the famine.
