New recordings posted of Portland fiddler Erik Killops and bouzouki player Richie Rosencrans. While they usually play Irish music they did a set of old time tunes at the O'Neill Pub in early 2017. Link to the recordings in profile.
#Day7 of #100daysofpractice ~ I recently learned this song, Lakes of Pontchartrain, from a video of Aoife O'donovan singing it. (although I'm not really a singer). I've been sort of working on a fiddle part for it with the E string brought down to a D. I really like how it sounds!😊
I promised @d.cassells that I would post a video of me playing a banjo that I recently bought from him. Here is a little of "Way Down That Old Plank Road" to show what a great sounding banjo this is. It's also a pleasure to play. If you are looking for a custom banjo, I highly recommend @d.cassells, his work is great. Support your local luthiers, you won't be disappointed. #banjo#oldtimemusic#oldplankroad#countybanjoco
Happy Sunny Sunday! 🌞 I actually don't know the name of this tune, but I always play it as a medley after "Rights of Man". Any of my fiddle player friends know this one? @emris_stricker @trevordean12 @katwallac3
This was our 2nd year playing aboard the Lorena Sternwheeler, which was built in 1849. We had a great time cruising down the Muskingum River singing and playing music. Thanks to everyone that came aboard with us and to all the folks that had a hand in making this happen!
Old sheet music, feeling nostalgic. My grandfather was a Musician and we had some of his sheet music sitting on the piano when I was a child. He passed when I was a toddler so that felt like a connection to him. #oldtimemusic#sheetmusic#eastcorinthvermont
So I stopped in this antique mall in Bismarck, North Dakota, a couple of days ago and found a big box of photos of country and western music performers from the late 1940s and early 50s. Lots of them were signed to a couple of North Dakota gals who were obvious fans (they even traveled to Nashville to see a Grand Ol Opry performance). I bought the whole box and will be sharing selections here. This publicity photo is of the Ardis Wells Trio. Ardis often performed with her husband, Jimmy Wells, and his band the Dakota Roundup. That's Ardis in the middle holding a Martin guitar. The accordion player on the left is Jan North, and the bass player is Patti Williams.
