The folk traditions of THE UNITED STATES are combined with traditional music of Ireland, Scandinavia, and Hungary from the American Café Orchestra. Not surprisingly ambitious-sounding name, the group is truly a duo offering New England-born fiddler Ruthie Dornfeld and Danish guitarist Morten Alfred Høirup. Dornfeld (a previous person in Boston-based contredance ensemble Yankee Ingenuity, eclectic string music group the Poodles) conceived the American Café Orchestra after conference Høirup in a bluegrass event in Denmark in 1985. During regular appointments to each other’s homeland, both instrumentalists began carrying out in cafés and folk night clubs through the entire Northeastern USA and European countries. The duo released their only recording, Egyptian Dominos, in 1992.
