. . . a lucky throwback, a dash of cold water in the face--
a wake up call, if you will . . . Decorah's marvelous Foot-Notes are
a sprightly quartet which . . . has specialized in
the antiquated, unamplified music of their immigrant Norwegian ancestors . . .
Foot-Notes are a terrific, organic band-- the likes of which
we just haven't found in these parts for some time.
Take the kids and shake your feet ...

. . . a charming string band from Decorah. Their vibrant performances at
community dances are significant catalysts for fostering an appreciation for
traditional dance music within the area's Norwegian-American community.
