Thread Name: Tune up: Fantasy Folk Circle
Subject: RE: Tune up: Fantasy Folk Circle
I'm back in the circle (I think we've given up the fantasy of an evening folk circle and moved into a weekend circle!) I'd like to contribute an old favorite of mine, "The Calton Weaver". I'm partial to the old Ian & Sylvia version, although I think they may have called it "Nancy Whiskey". I can handle the guitar on this (Key of C)and the male vocal, but I could sure use that autoharp and maybe if someone can do a Sylvia Fricker style harmony we could really make a "loud and joyous noise". This was my favorite piece to perform when I played the bars back in Iowa City in the late 60's and early 70's. Yeah, I've been around for a while. I really should change these strings...
