Dance tunes from the Cumbrian Fells. Recorded simply in Cartmel Village Hall.

Old Friends Band has been playing for 14 years at many a Cumbrian Merry Neet and their combined experience as musicians, dancers, composers and caller is very evident in this eminently danceable and highly original recording
