We tried to make up an album with a mix of old faves, maybe palyed a little differently, some new dance music, and som fine original songs. Jason, Bettina, and Teresa came up with some sets; Bettina, Bonnie and Don each contributed songwriting talents.
This is our third CD and the first with this exciting new line-up. The POITIN veterans, Don, Bob Teresa, Bonnie and Jim are joined by talented young musicians, Bettina Villamil, Jason Thorstad, Pat Crary and Alex Rydell.
At any rate, we had lots of fun getting together to make some of our own Red River version of Irish music. Hope you enjoy.
This CD was produced at Single Malt Studios, Moorhead, MN by Bob Schieffer and assisted by Jared Anderson.
