Fourgone Conclusions
Contra Dance Music from Western Massachusetts

But even though the Fourgones never play a tune the same way twice, they do have a distinctive'll make you smile right off the bat, and you'll want to hear it over and over again.
The musicians are Cammy Kaynor, Van Kaynor, David Kaynor, Ed Kaynor, Allan MacIntire, Becky Ashenden, and Nick Hawes.

GHM-109 $14.95

“ When we combined our first three LP recordings onto a CD (GHM-202 The Best of Nowell Sing We Clear, 1975-1986), some songs were not included. A few omissions (such as "Green Grow the Rushes-O") left behind disappointed, even irritated fans. This current recording began as an effort to take a fresh look at some of these missing songs, so much so that its working title was The Rest of.... It has, however, been supplemented with a lot of new material used in our stage show over the past few years.”
