    Nothing fancy here, just new. Got a tip on a gig playing background music, which would suit me just fine. Thought I'd go with a lot of what I used to do at my old Italian restaurant gig. I have no recordings of that, of course. So I whipped up a demo of this old work horse. Not really exemplary, as most of what I used to do were actual Italian folk dances from the Abruzzo region - but recognizable, which is what you want in a demo. Took a few passes, plus passing on tremolo, for the most part. I guess I'll see how it goes, and how well I survive practicing this stuff. I hope my fingers are up to the task. Ah, l la vita e bella! Enjoy!

    Thanks for that, Chuck. Other versions of "The Night Pat Murphy Died" or "Pat Murphy's Wake" have passed through oral tradition in different parts of Canada, and undoubtedly other countries. I wish I could find Lennox Gavan's Ottawa Valley version online, but here's Great Big Sea from Newfoundland, tough they're always over the top. I never heard the words as you sang them.

    Regarding Great Big Sea, post #2843: They play the common traditional tune for "The Night Pat Murphy Died." Lennox Gavan, mentioned above, sings the same tune for the first four lines of the verse, the A part, but has a different B part for the last four lines.

    This is a song written in 1968 by a beautiful lady by the name of "Mary Parent". Who was the leader of a country band called "Country 2+2" and sometimes "2+3". Mary was kind enough to let this little 12 year old be a regular member of the band. That is until the ABC or booze police walked in and put a quick end to that! Broke my Dads heart. But anyway she wrote this song when I was with the band and luckily my Dad copied the words from hers and got permission for us to use it, but we never did. So here it is not heard for 50 years or so. With words from Dads black book and music from a 12 year old brain that's aged 53 years since. Hope u enjoy and thanks for the listen!

    This is a piece from a collection I'm working on that is inspired by the Great Plains. The instrument is a Kimble 2-point mandola.

    Jo, I think that it is awesome that you built your own instrument and then play it so well. Keep up the good work!

    I have wanted to post something for quite a while now, but never got around to recording a tune or session properly.

    This was done in March of this year after an 8-month break for the trio due to Covid. We got together to record three songs that we had not practiced together for a long time, and all I had was a usb microphone for my computer for which I simply used the built-in video recorder. Okay, enough excuses; this is our version of the "Barnyard Dance" song that is on a Martin, Bogan, and Armstrong album from way back in 1972.

    Unfortunately, one must turn the computer volume up to 100 to hear it.

    I very rarely post to this part of the forum, keeping to the SAW Group for my regular postings, but here is a version of Jim Garber's lovely Tree Of Life waltz that I have already posted over on the SAW Group. Just adding it here too as I think Jim deserves to have his composition more widely heard. Thnaks again to Jim for making the notation available.

    From the sublime to the ... whatever.



    Posting this on my fb page last night to commemorate the holiday, I saw it was the tenth anniversary of this performance. That seemed noteworthy, so I thought it worth posting here one more time - hopefully the last time for a while. Both I and my equipment have improved considerably since then. Perhaps the instrument most so. Instead of the el cheapo MandoBird I've got a nice custom-made Ryder EM-44, purchased from Fast Eddie. Though now that I think of it, the Morley optical volume-wah bit the dust. That was a sweet pedal, provided much fluidity. The Yamaha Rex50 Multi-Effector gave up the ghost, too, after a quarter century of meritorious service. Now I have a Bad Horsie 2 pedal, and my Fender Super Champ XD is cranking along just fine, even if Fender doesn't make them anymore. Anyway ...

    In case anyone wonders, yes, I fairly well lost my place soon into the second verse. No idea what happened, though I suspect that the late hour and the possibility there were a couple of beers in me by then were contributing factors. I managed to pull it back from the brink of disaster all right. But gee whiz! I'd been practicing this for days.

    There's a point after the quote of "Taps" where Hendrix quoted "Strangers In The Night." I'd practiced that, too, but couldn't find it at the moment. So I threw in "Santa Lucia." That's actually more appropriate, personally, as that's the first song I ever heard on a mandolin, while waiting for a to-go pizza with my dad. It's always been a go-to time filler, so it was right there in my mind.

    What I said was "Wrong flag!" We had a flag display of the American and Conch Republic flags, and I thought it would have been better to display the Conch Republic flag - we do prize our independence here. But the singer/guitarist wanted the Stars And Stripes in the shot, befitting the moment. It does wave in the breeze rather nicely.

    Enjoy!

    Default My Dungannon Sweetheart

    I had always thought this was an Irish tune, but in fact it was composed by Canadian fiddler Graham Townsend for his wife Eleanor, who came from Dungannon, Ontario, quite some way from Dungannon, County Tyrone!

    Yes, Graham's "Dungannon Sweetheart" from the Lake Huon region was my fiddle teacher in Toronto long ago. I liked both Eleanor and Graham very much.
    A fine interpretation, John.

    What an interesting connection, Ranald. Another wee gem I can use if playing this tune to an audience. They like to hear about the tunes and any wee personal links always go down well. Thanks too for your kind comment.

    This a video of a song we cooked up. It's really Luna's show - she wrote the lyrics and music, but it fell to me to figure out the chords and an arrangement. We started shooting just before dusk, but kept goofing up or cracking up because of the little Key deer. They are friendly, but in order to keep them near we kept scattering bits of carrots around. So we ran late, and had to turn on the car's headlights. This ended up being a blessing in disguise, as it created an otherworldly lighting effect - in keeping with the theme of the songs, and all the odd activity.

    It's an odd sound we created - two high-pitched instruments. I think it's sort of airy and dreamy. The chords are kind of jazzy. I'm a little impressed with my ability to figure them out - that's rare that I impress myself. We vary the strum patterns from verse to verse, which creates a sort of flow, or evolution. This was recorded to be our entry in last year's NPR Tiny Desk Contest. That explains why there is a little end table behind us, with a conch shell for good measure.
