In fact, I found myself wondering,'How in the world does she do that?' as I listened to the dulcimer mirror what the fiddle was playing, note for note. This is a wonderful contradance recording.' - Neal Walters (Dulcimer Player News) 'If your musical background stops at the Mason-Dixon line on it's way north, you might expand you purview by listening closely to this album'... - Lyle Lorgren (Old Time Herald) '...shows a fine flair for melody and rhythm...A nicely arranged and lively collection of music.' - Jim Lee (Dirty Linen) 'This album rocks!' - Peter Barnes 'Wow! Imagine my surprise at getting your site and Charlotte's Waltz when I entered the name into my search engine! I love this waltz! I enjoy your playing and your 'Waiting for the Perseids' album. It's my new favorite. Many of the songs are ones I play on my fiddle. Now I will add this beautiful waltz to my song list. Thanks again.' - Deb from Florida.
