Album Review
Reviewed 2008-03-21 
Oh those wacky French! This collection of instrumental folk dances as a quirky, decidedly old world flavor. Hurdy-gurdy, accordion, clarinet and fifes (oh, the fifes!). Sweet natured and warm in a “happy peasants on market day festival” kind of sound. Oh yeah, they dance on stilts. Check out:

1. Relaxed midtempo oom-pah-esque polka.
3. A bit of a hitch in the melody then a sweet round dance.
5. Happy midtempo song about Little Red Riding Hod.
6. A squeaky, happy, bright midtempo sound.
7. Warm, midtempo polka.
9. Relaxed accordion/hurdy-gurdy mix rather elegant, in a way.
10. Lively, warm stilt dance. Can’t even picture it.
11. Slightly upbeat w/a joyful air.
14. A toe-tapping midtempo round dance.
15. Fun and cheerful, upbeat and light.
17. Bright traditional folk polka w/nicely squeaky bits.
18. Relaxed & halting, bright, a warm & welcoming sound.
