Felicia Dale - Hurdy Gurdy player for the CD,
The Beaches of St. Valery:
Felicia joins 3 Pints Gone for just one song, She Moved Through the Fair. It was a pleasure to have her with us in the studio.
Her Hurdy-Gurdy playing adds a forlorn sound that's between a violin and a bag pipe. It helps to make this song one of our favorites from this project.

WILLIAM PINT & FELICIA DALE
"If you thought that the sea never gave up her treasures, then think again... A must for all lovers of sea songs!" - Harbourfolk News, Nova Scotia, Canada
William Pint was born and raised in Milwaukee, WI, then headed west to Seattle to pursue music and avoid cold winters. Felicia Dale was born and raised on an island in Washington's Puget Sound; her father was a sea captain who brought back tales and treasures from exotic ports of call. Together, they make nautical music fun, dynamic and varied -- and above all, musical. Backing themselves with guitar, hurdy-gurdy (an ancient wheel-driven instrument that sounds like a cross between a bagpipe and a violin), tinwhistle, octave mandolin, doumbek, etc., they have a wide-open sense of rhythmic possibilities.
