They Might Be Giants did a song called Istanbul which is a fave of mine. There's a fun pseudo-Turkish dance that goes with it.

I like that one too :D

A poster outside one shop urged people to Dig For Victory, as if it were some kind of turnip.

That reminds me of the theme from Malcolm in the Middle by the same group.

Incredible programme, incredible group.

Working on learning this one and a couple others from this old fiddler. Thought I'd throw it on the board for counterpoint.

Nice Mycroft! I like old Alison. I LOVE Sam Bush and Dan Tyminsky (the mando players)--those guys are fun. The "original" BG song about the old fiddler has to be Uncle Pen (about Bill Monroe's uncle, Pendleton Vandiver)

FredK, do you ever fiddle for dancers? In particular for Contradance. I've gone to Mpls for dancing a few times, and perhaps I even heard you play. I love Irish and bluegrass fiddle music, so hard not to dance to it!

Hey Jo!

I have played for dances, both Irish and Old Time. I'm not a regular like the Wild Goose Chase Clogger folks or anything but I've played my fair share. I used to play with a Bluegrass band called The Whistlepigs around here. I'm a mandolin picker by trade, never got the hang of the bow. There's a chance we've met before--small world eh? We'll have to coordinate next time you're in the area!

Breathtaking. One of the nicest live voices around.



Often on repeat, lol.

Mad, do you know Arvo Pärt's Cantus in memoriam Benjamin Britten? It's really good. :)
