This is the second album that I made with George on flutes. We wanted to make something light and fun, and we were fascinated with Elves and the folklore of magical forests. I picked out some traditional tunes, and penned some of my own along those lines. We pretended we were elves and fairies playing all kinds of instruments. We named the fictional band "Elfin Love Tribe", and we had a really good time, getting in touch with our inner elves. There are some well known melodies like Greensleeves, and Scarborough Faire, so people really like this record. I think its a good choice for holiday music too. Kids dig it big time. It''s not the romantic ethereal love vibes of the other records, its spunky with some Elfin attitude. Hand percussion and jig type numbers here and there, some ballads too. If you''re a fan of Tolkien, this could be the soundtrack.
