Brian Peters Traditional Songs and Music from England
The Beast In The Box (1998): PUGCD 003
Another release focussing on the squeezebox, including many Northern English tunes, several Peters originals and a smattering of songs. Nancy Kerr contributes some superb fiddle and viola, Jenny Coxon adds hammered dulcimer to several tracks, and Rocky Mountain Ploughboys Dave Pope and Bonz help out too.  The final track gets a radical ‘trance’ arrangement, with sampled and sequenced rhythms behind hypnotic melodeon riffs!

"Those seeking to find out more about the melodeon will find few masters to equal this one.... An exceptionally good album"
