David Surette - Northern Roots

David Surette - Northern Roots

Madrina Music is pleased to announce the release of Northern Roots, the new recording from guitarist and mandolinist David Surette.

Northern Roots is the first album to feature the guitar and mandolin in a program of all-traditional, New England-based dance music; it marks as well Surette's first return to solo recording since 1996's Trip to Kemper (which was selected by Yankee Magazine as one of their "Top Forty" essential New England CDs).
