||Persons of Quality
are 3 talented musicians (Jim Oakden, Rebecca King and Jon Berger)

using a wide array of instruments. Each tune gets a vivid treatment
and driving rhythm, which is both wonderful to listen to, and a pleasure
to dance to. Persons of Quality have produced two CD's of ECD music.

they played for a dance weekend at Halsway Manor in England. www.persons-of-quality.com
