Product Notes

'On Sundays we'd go out to Grandpa's house for dinner. After the meal which had been cooked on a woodstove and prepared with water from a hand pump at the sink, we'd all go out into the parlor. A big old upright piano dominated the room. All the chairs faced it. Grandpa's fiddle lay on top. Someone would sit down at the piano and start to play. Grandpa would pick up his fiddle. Feet tapping, hands clapping we'd listen and sometimes dance to the tunes they played. He always played Put Your Little Foot. I guess because we were kids and had little feet. There was no TV. Grandpa had only just got electricity.' Beverley Conrad and Greg Burgess keep this family tradition alive with their fiddle and piano music in 'Tunes From the Family Parlor.' The husband and wife team performed as a duo for many years. Then Penn's Tavern, the restaurant where they performed every Saturday night since 1992, closed down.* Greg took up with a jazz trio and Beverley, with an Irish drummer. Don't worry. They're still married. Just doing their own thing separately now. They both appear throughout the northeast now, but at different places and different times. Greg has his current music at CD Baby. He goes by his own name. Beverley has hers with that Irish drummer as well. They go by the name The Lowlander Highlanders. *The famous Penn's Tavern has re-opened under new management and guess what - We'RE BACK! Call the restaurant directly at 570-286-2007 to see when we're going to be there.
