Subject: Duncan Chisholm

Had a couple of tune requests from non-feline friends today.
Firstly -- Does anybody have a MIDI file of the tune "Hymn to the Saviour", or a copy of Duncan's first CD, on which he recorded it? Just spoke to Dunc, and he doesn't even have a copy himself!
Secondly -- Anybody have the dots for a 6/8 pipe march "Duncan Chisholm, Chief Steward(t)", possibly by Jim Chisholm? Dunc had never heard of it.
The first enquirer has the dots, but was taught by ear, whilst the second has a recording and was only taught to read!
Have a Purrrrrrrrfect Crimble, 'Catters,
Rob

Found a reference to Duncan Chisholm's Back Yard, 2/4 March but no 6/8 tune.

Re 'Humn To The Saviour', if your friend can scan the dots that he already has I'm sure that one of us here can create a MIDI for you. If that's OK you can send to johninbrisbane@hotbot.com

Regards, John

If you go to http://www.ceolas.org/cgi-bin/ht2/ht2-fc/case=yes and enter the search word 'chisholm' you'll find scores of references, including a number of tunes composed by Jim Chisholm. There are a lot of references there so make a pot of coffee before you start.

Regards, John

I have his first recording, The Wind On The Heath, which has Hymn To The Saviour. Is there a way I can get you the tune from the tape w/o infringing on his copywrite with the recording? If Duncan gives you the ok, I'll be glad to. I bought it in Dingwall at the Highland Music Festival back in '90. I was touring with a group of Scottish fiddlers from California. I'd be curious if he remembers us.

J.in B. (sounds like Whisky, to me!) Thanks for all the info. Ain't put the coffee on yet, but will browse later. I must find a dots/Midi programme myself. Dunc will just love all the tunes named after(or before!) him. Do you have his later "Redpoint" CD? It's still available here, if not. I'm looking for any "Redgum" albums, preferably CD, or were they only on vinyl? I'm up for doing swaps for other stuff only available locally, if you are. See below my message to chanteyranger for suggestions.

chanteyranger,
Many thanks also for your offer,
Dunc's unavailable, but seeing as he ain't got a copy himself, it's long deleted, and the record company probably no longer exists, I'd lay odds he'll want a copy, too! I take it you've got it on cassette, not CD? Any chance you could do a few copies of the whole tape? Mainly my fiddler mate (who hails from a minute west coast village in Scotland -- two of his nearest neighbours are Angus Grant, fiddler, repairer, tunesmith, teacher and father of "young" Angus, fiddler with "Shooglenifty", and Mike Anderson, who runs "Starfish", making all sizes of Clarsach and other small harps, as well as gorgeous electric Fiddles and 'Cellos. Lucky B*stard).
But I'd love a copy too, plus Dunc, my daughters fiddle teacher, John in Brisbane?, and maybe a few spare.

Could swap you for a copy(ies)of "Redpoint", or other local CDs/tapes. I've just got Douglas Lawrence's first CD. He was taught by famous Doric fiddler Hector Macandrew, (98 of whose unpublished tunes have just come to light, 20 years after his death - book due soon) then studied classically, played in the Scottish National Orchestra, TAUGHT Yehudi Menuhin Hector's tunes for his Memorial concert, but has never recorded in 35 years playing! This man has a tortured soul pouring out of his bow.
Get back to me before copying away madly, though, as I would prefer CD, if someone turns up an example to copy.


Could you possibly jot down the Record Company details off the cassette, post 'em back and I'll try to trace them over here, as a first step! Ta. I wonder who's got the Master.........maybe time for a re-release!

SWAPS (if either of you are up for it)-- Trans-oceanic postage COSTS, so there's no point sending single items -- I'd rather gather up odd items (CDs, song/tunebooks, etc.)over a few weeks, even months,(depending upon my fluctuating budget) until the parcel's up to a reasonable size and swap for a similar value parcel, including shipping. I reckon wants lists are better on PM boards than a thread. Try me.
Rob.

Max, if you remind me via PM in the New Year I'll check out some Redgum material - I don't have any myself. Regards, John

Never heard of "Duncan CHISHOLM, Chief Steward", but there is a 6/8 march called "Duncan McGillivray, Chief Steward".
