ETHNIC   INSTRUMENTAL ROCK  XTREME POLKA!


The Serfs have been delighting audiences for 20 years with their unique

objectives of the band was to elevate the much maligned image of

the piano accordion. Not dwelling upon one genre of music, the Serfs draw

from a wide variety of traditional world music styles and its own compositions to cross boundaries and elevate the accordion's image to a diverse multicultural vocalist

DIG CD RELEASE PARTY

songs and poems by Deidre Randall

Local cultural catalyst, songwriter, poet and publisher Deidre Randall is

at it again, with the release of Dig, her third CD of original music.

The new album will be released and celebrated on December 6, 2014

at The Dance Hall in Kittery, Maine.


Randall was the Best Folk Artist of 2000 in Spotlight’s Reader’s Choice

Awards back in the day. Then she fell in love, married, and took time

out to have a second family. Dig is the culmination of many years of

writing, plus two years in the crafting with three producers; Marc

McElroy, Guy Capecelatro III and Chris O'Neill, collaborating and

guiding Randall along the path.


The band includes Marc McElroy, Guy Capecelatro III, Jim Rioux,

Adam Kelley, Thomas D'Amour and many special guests. Dig includes

ten songs and two poems written, or co-written by Randall. The title

track Dig was first heard by moviegoers in 2011, when it was included in the soundtrack for Farming 101, a film on local dairy farms created by Randall's father, Peter.
