This is a track from the new CD 'Band of Two' by Banna de dhá, the duo of fiddler Tom Morley and DADGAD guitarist Hazel Ketchum. The Irish phrase (pronounced 'bonna de gaw') makes reference to the 'banding together' of their two instruments, fiddle & guitar. This tune is usually played as a hornpipe but here the duo give it a moody interpretation.

This is a tune I wrote back in summer of 2012 and originally named it Albert's Slide because I could not think of a title at the time. I am now renaming it Rich Dissmoore in honour fo Rich's memory. I believe in my mind and heart this tune represents Rich's tenacity for life, friendship, and music. Never giving up and at times, I'm sure, trudging through his obstacles. Please download if you like. AJ

Here is a mighty set of tunes from my Celtic /World music group Mithril, from our recently-released CD 'Along the Road'. It's one of my favorite sets, featuring a jig and two slipjigs, all classic Irish trad tunes.

I heard this jig on a 78 by the Balinakill Traditional Dance players. They did it with Carraroe Jig and called it Lambert's. I love their sound. You can hear it on an old Folkways LP called Irish Dance Music. It may be on the CD reissue as well.

Update: Oct 29/12: Downloading is now available for this tune. Thanks for listening. I been composing tunes in the last couple of weeks, and a couple in Ireland have been helping out in recording them. They are called Dulahan Ireland. We are "friends" online through TradConnect.com. Their ability to play so well a new tune astounds me at the least.. I have not tried these tunes at this pace, about 160BPM in 12/8 time which is the dotted 1/4 note gets the beat. The tunes are slides,...

Tunes from a Tuesday at Patrick's Pub in Providence. I think Jay Gilbert is playing the tenor. I learned Bear Island from John McGann, I miss him so much. I really dig the sound of session back round noise, it just relaxes me and the amazing thing is it's the same everywhere you go!

This is a repost of the same viola/mandolin recording I've had posted since Sept. 2009 but which appears to have become inaccessible somewhere along the line; I'm not sure when. Hopefully, this one can actually be listened to. ====================================== I find this melody haunting; one of those tunes that I just can't get out of my mind. This is my arrangement played on my newest toy, a viola (not strictly a fiddle, I guess, but kinda like one; notwithstanding that it feels a little...

I was trying to "simulate" somewhat of the recording from Saint Vitus Dance Band. I was playing a solo at a request and the mixer decided to throw on the echo. Hides some of the mistakes.

This tune was written by Mithril percussionist David Hughes in response to the recent events involving the oil spill here on the gulf coast. It's our anthem to the gulf coast and all who have been affected by the results of the spill. You'll hear Cajun & Celtic flavors in this Mithril 'World Music' tune.

An ancient Scottish air said to have been written by one Jamie MacPherson, a freebooter sentenced to be hanged. Before his sentence is carried out, he plays this tune and challenges anyone present to play it. When no one steps up, Jamie smashes his fiddle against a rock and declares, "No one shall play Jamie MacPherson's fiddle."

This is a slip jig in D that I ran across in the County Champaigne collection that I have really taken a liking to, and it is a great tune to use to experiment with ornamentation and bowing variations.
