Product Description

About the Artist

Since its inception in 1991, the Barn Owl Band's mainstay gig has been playing for a monthly barn dance for the Central Iowa Barn Dance Association in Ames, Iowa. The Owls have also been sighted at the Iowa governor's inauguration dinner, coffee houses, concert stages, farmer's markets, weddings, celebrations, Irish ceili dances, TV shows, sound tracks, RAGBRAI (the [Des Moines] Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa), and NPR's "A Prairie Home Companion" with Garrison Keillor. The barn owl (Tyto alba) is known for sticking to its home territory, though, and like its namesake, the Barn Owl Band tends to remain home in central Iowa for the majority of its performances. In 2000, the Owls released their first CD, "Dance Owl Night." This album captured some of the best medleys that the Owls had arranged for dances, a couple of vocal songs, and included several tunes that were composed by members of the band. Their newest recording ,, gives the listener a true taste of the spirit and energy of the Owls. On this live recording, you will find a wonderful mix of traditional and original tunes, performed before an enthusiastic live audience. Whether you sit and listen quietly, tap your toes, stomp your feet, or dance around the room, you will enjoy this music as much as the Barn Owls enjoy playing it.

Sit back, close your eyes, and tap your toes!

I bought this album after hearing one of the cuts on Pandora Radio ... and it just plays and plays in my truck stereo.

I first heard the Barn Owls on the Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor and was hooked. My favorite is the original piece, "Cloud Mountain Waltz". It is hauntingly beautiful. This CD will make anyone a lover of string bands. So far Barn Owls don't wander far from Iowa, but with the CD, they are sure to collect an audience begging for them to come out and play!

Heard the Barn Owls on Pandora Radio and immediately loved their music. Of all of the music that I own, this disc is the most down-to-earth and uplifting. Makes me want to reel.

The Barn Owls are fabulous. I especially like "The Johnson Boys." I wish I owned more of their music. I listen to it a lot.

Was drawn to it because of 'the Johnson boys', but I like the rest of the songs as well. More Celtic than I expected, but great sound!

I bought this album after hearing one of the cuts on Pandora Radio ... and it just plays and plays in my truck stereo. I think they have only one or two other albums out, but I have both on my wish list. My left leg gets lots of exercise while I'm driving ... because you can't keep your toe from tapping!

These guys can really play their instruments. The first or second tune has the most happy banjo playing i have ever heard....and i listen to many banjo players.
