This is "The Cat Came Back" an EP from the Waubeek Trackers. This recording was transferred from vinyl and encoded at 160kpbs. This is folk music.
The Waubeek Trackers were together from 1980 until they had their farewell concert at F.B. and Co. in Waubeek, Iowa, in January of 1987. They were members of the Iowa Arts Council Touring Artists program for two years, and the Alliance of Acoustic Artists. They have one album - The Cat Came Back. The Trackers are progressive in their original interpretation and arrangements of traditional and contemporary music by their blend of instrumentation and vocal harmonies. I's been said their tasteful song selections which includes ethnic folk (Irish, Scottish, English, and Canadian), traditional North American folk, original and contemporary styles, provides stimulating and compelling pleasure to the listener.
Richard Baillargeon, a native of Minneapolis, has been "stringing his own way" since the early 1970s. His guitar, mandolin, and vocal work is a key ingredient of the Trackers' memorizing sound. As of 2007, Richard is still in eastern Iowa, and playing bluegrass music for occasional public appearances with his talented son, Gabe, who plays a mean lean mandolin.
Steve Maurice adds to the flavor with his Irish tin whistle, harmonicas, bamboo flute, percussion and, above all, his own spirited, agile voice and off-beat brand of humor. As of 2007, Steve is jamming with Richard and Gabe. Earlier in the 21st century, Steve played with Patty for a couple years in a celtic music band called Fianna.
Patty Ankrum is a guitarist and a charismatic energetic folk vocalist with a natural talent to combine texture and technique. She brings to the trio her own past experice in the professional music filed as a solo folk artist. As of 2007, Patty's stayed in the music performance realm after the WT disbanded in 1987. She performed in Black Sheep (a band of the 90s), Fianna, and WREN.
