Rare Privilege features Maria Terres on fiddle and banjo, and Amy McFarland on piano, concertina, and guitar. Their music has often been described as "way more sound than we ever thought two instruments could make." Devotion to individual instruments, a sense of innovation, and a deep love and respect for the living tradition of folk music and dance combine to give their music an imaginative and lyrical energy and drive. Rare Privilege plays for New England Style Contra Dancing, Irish and Scottish Social Dancing, English Country Dancing, and many other traditional dance styles. Based in Wisconsin, they have performed throughout the US and also in Canada.
