"Uncommon Waltzes" CD is now AVAILABLE!!!
I am thrilled to announce the release of my new CD, Uncommon Waltzes.
These are original tunes composed for contradancing, expanded and arranged for your listening pleasure. They are written in a variety of styles, including Irish, French cafe music, tango waltz, chamber music, Appalachian, and more. Over 20 musicians contributed to this project, including fabulous players on fiddle, flute, guitar, accordion, alto sax, clarinet, oboe and more.
I wish to thank all of the musicians who so expertly performed on the CD, Hamilton Altstatt for his great ideas and expertise in the studio, and my many friends and family members who have encouraged me and enjoyed my music over the years.
To purchase the music visit the link at the left. You can also download the sheet music, read the stories of the waltzes and even listen to a bonus track.
I hope you enjoy the music!
About These Waltzes
I began writing waltzes for contradances and English country dances the late 1990s. Even though my friends encouraged me over the years to record a CD of my tunes, for some reason I put it off. Finally, the stars lined up and 2012 became the year of the waltz CD.
