Burnside Album Details

Anger, Darol & Barbara Higbie, Tideline

In 1980, Windham Hill's newly empowered Executive Producer Will Ackerman heard my first release "Fiddlistics" and liked the lone, lonesome piano and violin duet on that recording. He wanted more of that feeling; Barbara Higbie and I managed to give him that and more. Barbara, my Northern California compatriot that I had actually met two years prior in paris while she was busking around the continentf, had an ear for odd time signatures that sound perfectly normal, her perfectly tilted melodies, and tough, joyful groove fit right in with all the surging, leaping music happening around us. I finally felt ready to sing out my own story on a fiddle borrowed from my best friend. Our total conviction about the music made everything come together for Tideline. ~Darol Anger 2015
