Thread Name: Origins: Angel Band
Subject: RE: Angel Band
JTT: What is meant by "yards about Padraig Pearse"? I'm not familiar with that term, and like to understand as much as I can about the situation over there, especially if I intend to go playing Irish tunes in public, some of which, I have discovered (fortunately without getting a shilleighliegh up side the head for emphasis) that some tunes can eliciet strenuous and potentially unpleasant audience responces if played to the wrong crowd. And that I like to understand a little about a situation and people for whom I occasionally pray.
I downloaded and enjoyed the Angel Band rendition (albiet truncated) by Cynthia Clawson, from her River of Memories CD. I found myself spontaniously singing along with "intuitive" bass harmony; Lord, wouldn't I love to try this with real human beings!
