"Super-Insulated House" reel,
copyright Hope Hoffman 2005
While living in an un-insulated Quonset hut in Bowdoinham, I wrote this speedy, note-y tune to stay warm -- it's very active to play and energizing to dance to!
Perhaps the excitement of a fantasy about a very well-insulated house contributed to the happiness of the tune.
The melody lends itself easily to harmony parts.
"Super-Insulated House" is recorded live at a contra dance on the new CD "FIDDLEDANCEMUSIC: Field Recordings in Maine 2006-2008." This album is available online as single-track downloads and mail-order, and at Maine retailers.
