    Default Red Prairie Dawn Cd

    Anyone have a couple of "Red Prairie Dawn" by Garry Harrison they would like to sell? Or know of a place to download it?

    It's sad that this recording doesn't seem to be available anywhere. What a beautiful tune. I'd love to hear his version of it.

    I agree , Don. A real gem , and I wonder what other great tunes are recorded on there as well. From what I can tell , it isn't available as a download either. Btw , I'm only looking for one copy. A lot of folks are downloading to their computers and selling the originals , so if anyone is interested in passing one on , please get in touch with me.

    Another nice version, this time on mandolin, by our own David Mold (Old Sausage).

    Thanks for posting these videos fellas. If you are not familiar with Garry's tune it would make you stand up and take notice. I love the laid-back version in the first video and David's playing is fantastic on this as well as anything else i've seen by him. My favorite version is the first one i heard. It comes from Jim Hilburns website and is a demo for a mandolin he built.
    http://www.hilburnmandolins.com/gallery56.html I realize many folks already know of or play it , but it is a new tune in my repertoire and not played much in my area.

    I emailed Garry a few years ago to ask him if the Red Prairie Dawn CD was available and he gave me the link below to a site where he put it up for free download. A lot of great tunes on this album. Looks like it still works.

    On Jim Hillburn's site, with the Red Prairie Dawn piece, is a lovely waltz: The Village Road. How about the music for
    that one?

    Funny... I hadn't listened to this album in years. I didn't appreciate it much back then as I do now, especially since I'm trying to learn to play the fiddle. Garry Harrison was quite a fiddle player! I hear a lot in the album now that I'd like to learn on the fiddle that didn't interest me before on the mandolin.

    As for the album, if anyone is still looking for a copy of it, PM me.

    The tune Red Prairie Dawn is one of my favorites, and I play it all the time on mandolin (the same version posted previously as a PDF). But it has quite a different feel than the original on the Red Prairie Dawn album. Garry Harrison's version sounds more 'fiddly' and is played like a good old-time fiddle tune, rather than the more melodic versions exemplified in this thread.

    Either way it's a great tune. I was actually trying to play it last night on my fiddle like I play it on the mandolin. But listening to his original recording again, I may want to go back to a style that emulates his.

    *edited to correct the spelling of Garry's name.

    I just spent a little time combing the web for some of Gary's music and came across some field recordings of his fiddling from 1982. I can be downloaded at the following link, half way down the page in a post by "mojo_monk":

    So far so good!
