From: JedMarum
Date: 31 Jul 08 - 11:03 AM

It's been heads down preparation for me these last few weeks - getting ready to record a new album - and today the work begins. This afternoon my music partners begin arriving - tomorrow Paul Mills comes to town - Saturday, Sunday and Monday will be 8 hours each at Crystal Clear Studios in Dallas to track the band parts - then Paul and I return to Toronto to finish recording, mix and master.

This is a Celtic Folk/Roots album, a few originals, a few old favorites. Button Accordion, guitar, mando and octave mando, banjo, viola de gamba, whistle/flute, bodhran and upright bass ... I am ready and really looking forwarding to working on this project.

I'll come back to this thread with updates in a couple of weeks - and maybe sneak previews.

Well - we've finished two days of recording and have one more today with the band - today is overdubs, and possibly one new track - then Paul and I head to TO tomorrow to finish the project.

We've really done well with the schedule - and I love the sounds! We have a strong variety of sounds and styles. It has been a real pleasure working with these guys, even though we've worked our as*ses off.

Yes Marion. I am looking forward to Thursday! In fact I am looking forward to visiting the city again. We've been baking in the Texas summer sun these last few weeks.

OK - the album will out Oct 20. It'll be available at CDBaby at I-Tunes and all of the MP3 Services.

But I am doing a direct sale for my email and newsletter lists and for Mudcat folks. I am not pushing this too far, since I am not set up to do mass shipping - BUT I figure the few folks who stumble onto my website won't increase the numbers by much.

Take a look at the info here. I've described the album, posted links to samples and more info and I've described the direct sale offer that I'll work through December.

I stated on the page that I can can't do overseas shipping, but I can sort that out if you like. It just costs a couple dollars more. Send me a note through the CONTACT page.

Anyway - let me know what ya think. I do hope ya'll listen to the album. MP3s or CDs or whatever ...

I've had an opportunity to hear this CD. For those of us who have wanted more traditional songs from Jed, this has got them. It has both established trad songs and those gradually become traditional.

There are fiddle tune sets. These aren't my favorites to listen to because I play diddly music and hear them a lot. They did their jobs though. I thought, 'Oh...tunes,' but then noticed my feet were tapping (I had the cruise control on) and I was happy, and that's the whole point of fiddle tunes, isn't it?

There are a couple of Brian McNeill's masterful songs, both done quite well. There are a few of Jed's songs, which are always my favorite part of his CDs. The one that has the 'wow' factor for me is 'The Way Your Earth Moves'. It has to be the most gentle and loving prayer of a song I've ever heard. I think it will be an instant classic, and will fit with any voice, any genre.

May your new CD find its way into many music collections, my friend!

OK, I have spent the entire weekend listening to this one. My buddy, and fellow Beef Brother, tells me he thinks this is his finest work. I don't think I agree with him on that. But that is because everytime he gets in the studio with the other Beef Brother, Mr. Paul Mills, the product is excellent. One only has to listen to the musicianship, the vocal excellence, the wonderfully crafted lyrics and the way Jed turns a phrase, to know he is an artist par excellence, and that the work is going to be to a very high standard. So it is with this one. Sands of Aberdeen just slides right in with his other works as fitting into the "must have" category. Every single time he heads to the studio, the product marks another step along the path to legacy. Each one of these CD's shows Jed at another waypoint along the path to greatness as an artist, songwriter, and musician. In this chapter of the legacy he is joined (as is noted above), by Hugh Morrison and Mason Brown. The result is a wonderful collection of songs, interpreted to a tee, and produced with the stunning results that one gets working with Paul Mills. This entourage of performers led by our Jed, and produced by Paul, have created a touchstone recording. One of my favorites (although not sung by Jed) is their take on Lily of the West. The opening track, which is the Title Track, grabs you by the heart and works you over. Take the time to listen to it several times over, in order to get the emotion it brings. The Low D whistle track, Willie Coleman's, will eat you alive. I love their take on Star of the County Down, and was very happy to see it included, as well as Down by the Glenside. He also does the Broon o' Cowdenknowes, and does it great honor by the rendition. I also liked the tip of the hat he gave with the Belles of Ontario.

Just a first rate piece of work, in my opinion. The trouble that Jed will have is that he continually sets the bar so high that one expects him eventually to have a letdown. Based on this work, I don't see that happening anytime soon.

Get this one, folks. You won't be sorry.

All the best,

Thanks folks. I appreciate your kind thoughts very much.

The album is finally out. It should be hitting the airwaves soon and it is at CDBaby already. I know it's been sent to the iTunes and the other Mo3 Services, but I don't know how soon it'll appear in their inventory - probably a week or so.

It's a lotta business work, for folk music! Getting all this stuff done, but most of those details are taken care of.

Please contact your favorite Folk or Celtic radio shows and request they play some of it. It is probably already at the stations, and if not PLEASE let me know so I can send them a copy.

And by the way; we based all of our cover art for the album on photos from Mudcatter, Ythanside. He sent us a number of great photos from Aberdeen area beaches.

I thought the eponymous song was trad until I looked at the credits and saw you wrote it! Congratulations!! The songs themselves, the arrangements, and the playing - excellent, exceptional and really beautiful. Love Uncle Joe knowing the story behind it, esp.

The sneak peek at your Americana CD has me humming ear worms all day! Excellent songs that just won't get out of my head, which is great! Thanks (I think!) No, seriously, just teasing; thanks for sending it along. I have to confess it is my favourite, at the moment, maybe because it is all Jed Marum originals except for Lilly of the West.:-)

The Americana disc was going to a much smaller radio market and I only made a small number to sell, hoping instead to sell MP3s. It has my Christmas song on it - so it may still get some airplay. Fingers crossed.

Folks, Jed sent me his Americana EP, "Ain't No Going Back." It is a sleeper that, I predict, is going to sweep the charts when it gets out there. Go have a listen to his Christmas song, Banjos We Have Heard On High." It will get stuck in your head as it has mine and you'll see what I mean. But, it isn't just that one song, it's also the eponymous song, Ain't No Going Back and Yankee in Texas as well as his instrumental of his own song Sands of Aberdeen and Lilly of the West. I LOVE the arrangement of the latter, esp. Just go listen to the samples at CDBaby and then call your local radio station. BTW, Jed, have sent both of these to Hober radio and Pandora?

Thanks, again, Jed!

I finally got around to reading Jed's liner notes this evening. I was surprised to learn that "Down by the Glenside" isn't a traditional song, but was written by Peadar Kearney who also wrote Amhrán na bhFiann, the Irish national anthem.

"Down by the Glenside" is in the Richard Dyer-Bennet Folk Song Book as "Bold Fenian Men". He calls it an Irish street ballad and writes about how he learned it from other people's singing without knowing anything about the song. I guess I had assumed from his description that it was a trad song.

Related trivia ? "Down by the Glenside" was performed in the John Ford western Rio Grande by Ken Curtis, who later played Festus Hagen on Gunsmoke for many years.

I don't know Hober radio and Pandora, Kat. What/Who are they? I would send it wider to radio, but I just don't know which stations. Most of the collection is Texas focused, so I hit the Texas Americana stations that I found and few of the Folk-DJ hosts who expressed an interest.

I learned "Down by the Glenside" as "Bold Fenian Men" and it is in the DT with "Bold Fenian Men" as a subtitle. But most every I looked I saw it titled "Down by the Glenside." An Irish singer friend told me the Fenian word in the title put people off, so the other title is used. I don;t know if there's any truth to that. It wouldn't turn off the American audience in any case - so I just went with what the song seems to be more commonly called.

It is a beautiful song and I've been pleased to see it make a few of the playlists.

"Bold Fenian Men" is another song entirely. I have not spent the time as yet to figure out which predates the other. But the title to the song in question has always been "Down By The Glenside". I suspect that folks just used the Fenian referent because it is the closing line of the chorus.

All the best,

I'll look into both Folk Alley and Hober, but my primary interest to-date has still been broadcast media. There're so many internet streaming sites and there's little or no tracking and no way f knowing who is really worthwhile, and will still be around for a while. I have worked with the few that I know.

I just did a little quick checking. It seems that the author of Down By The Glenside, Peadar Kearney, was born in 1883 and died in 1942. Fr. Michael Scanlan, author of Bold Fenian Men, was born in 1931. It seems a fair deduction that Down By The Glenside (Bold Fenian Men) predates the song The Bold Fenian Men. Nonetheless, in the singing in the emigrant community I was around growing up, Down By the Glenside was the way it was referred to, with the other being The Bold Fenian Men. I have been doing them both for years.

All the best,

Mick

Jed, Pandora is the music genome project and I listen to it all the time. The user created playlist is up all of the time with clickable links to purchase the CDs of what is played. I have several "radio stations" which I have created there and it is all free to listener. Check it out at Pandora. They've recently added the ability to listening on mobiles and such, plus videos, and have been around since 2000.

Hober has been around since 1998 and also offers playlists with links to purchase CD. I have heard a lot of Mudcatters on there including Kendall Morse, Rick Fielding, and Art Thieme.

You might think it is all Texas oriented, but the music carries over regardless of where one lives, imo!:-)

Thanks for the link, Kat. I'll look into it.

Guest you must have been that one in the audience! I am amazed anyone saw us there. The place blew down in the South Texas winter wind - and they canceled the rest of the festival right after we played!
