Trip in 1913

From yesterday, at Tommy Doyle's.  I've decided to be less verbose in the interest of posting more often.

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Hello the internet!  I have been posting here only very intermittently of late, due to a lack of recording equipment and a lack of time.  I have been able to remedy the former and have largely made peace with the latter.  Here are a few songs and tunes from this Sunday's session at Tommy Doyle's.

The Boys in the Band

My most recently completed song, this one is about six months old.  Fans of Beairtle Ó Domhnaill (if you're not, you should be) will recognize a strong similarity to his 'Rodeo Man.'  I am delighted to help bring the Gaeltacht Country sound back full circle.  Any resemblance of the boys and girl in this song to actual people is purely coincidental, except when it isn't.

Little Musgrave

My version of Musgrave has been brewing for a year or so, and while I am not quite done with it, I thought this one was good enough to share.

Before He Turned Nineteen

Another recording of my song for Red Hart, my Nazi-killin' grandpa.

The Jug of Punch/Cottage Grove/Jenny's Chickens

Seáinín has finally made a set out of these tunes, which had long been homeless.  Balance isn't the best, but I did what I could with my limited Audacity skills to bring up the fiddle.  Feedback appreciated.

Over the Moor to Maggie/Fred Finn's/The Hunter's House

Some old favorites.
