'Sitting down to enjoy the music of Uncle Dirtytoes is a real treat! It has all the inspiration, nuances and optimism that remind me of why I got into writing and performing music myself, so many years ago. Long live real music!' - Ian Anderson, Jethro Tull. Make Them Come Alive! Recorded Live with no overdubs, additives, or MSG September 13, 1997 at Stony Point Barn Uncle Dirtytoes has an extensive musical repertoire consisting mainly of originals which are complemented by a mixture of traditional and contemporary cover songs. The originals vary widely in style and flavor with songs that are evocative of other times and places, as well as portrayals of life here and now. The band derives it's inspiration from songwriter Maria Anthony and such seminal folk-rock artists as Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span, Jethro Tull, and Richard Thompson, and covers songs by these performers as well as artists such as Bob Dylan, The Waterboys, Jefferson Airplane, the Beatles, and others. The core of Uncle Dirtytoes, Maria Anthony (vocals, acoustic guitar, flute) and Megan Hurt (violin, backing vocals), have been playing together in various musical arrangements since 1988, and as Uncle Dirtytoes since 1991. Veteran guitarist Roger Holden (electric guitar) has been with the band since 1993, Mark von Schlemmer joined on bass in 1995 and Mike Fitzgerald began drumming with the 'Toes in 1996. Darrell Lea (vocals, acoustic guitar) was an original member of the band, rejoined again in 1997 and now sits in with the band on occasion.
