Product Description

The "Barn Owls Live" was recorded at the Barn Owl Band's annual spring concert in Ames, Iowa in April of 2003. The nationally recognized Barn Owl Band is powered by fiddle, banjo, accordion and whistle, backed by guitar, piano, upright bass and percussion. The Owls give new wing to the exciting sound of the traditional American string band. It's good old-fashioned, toe-tapping, foot-stomping entertainment brought up to date with fresh renditions of time-honored tunes and songs, as well as new compositions that add to the tradition. In this album, the Barn Owls showcase a wide variety of musical styles, including old-time American fiddle tunes, Irish jigs and reels, French-Canadian tunes, waltzes, airs, and folk songs. The true spirit and energy of the Barn Owl Band is captured in this live recording and is sure to bring a smile to your face.

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.
