For more than 30 years Mudcat's Dick Miles has been play and writing traditional music in England and Ireland. With his great love for songs of the sea Dick has created several wonderful CD's such as "The banks of the claudy, "just the tide flowing", Cape Fear, sailor town. Playing his concertina - he is truly one of mudcat's masters.

God Bless

Queens sounds like a euphemism for something the Mudcat Masters might do in their spare time. While Mudcat Madam's might sound even more intriguing...

Here in Illinois, where our governors make our license plates, I have not heard about Dick Miles. That other thread was the first! So, I'm looking forward to that pleasure as these times move forward.

Old Dude, thanks!

In regard to voting process ... these are my threads anyone else can please join in the fun cause it is fun to point out the talent here.

voting process:

One time the staff of Abe Lincoln wanted him to do something so finally he said ok we will vote. All in favor, 8 hands went up... all opposed
Lincoln's hand went up ... 8 yes - 1 no ... the no's have it!

that is the voting process since I created the thread on my own

Archie's Fancy & Herd on the Hill: Excellent. I have usually heard Archie's Fancy played a little quicker than that, but it works really well very slow.

Nice recording, Dick.

Have you got Tam Lin up there (on Youtube) yet Dick?

Just listened to the clip of 'Just As the Tide was Flowing' from your website, Dick ... simply lovely ... lovely ...

I'm not holding my breath about Lancaster happening again - but I would be heartbroken if I thought it meant my not seeing you, Louis, Hughie, Dave and Anni, Andy Kenna and too many others for me to list again.   Does your website have a gig list section, Dick? I couldn't see it. Are you still over for some dates around Easter? Any details anywhere?

Dick - you play a mean tune, man, but please don't take offense when I say that you are positively the worst typist in the known universe ;-)

Would the Lancahire gig be anywhere near the coast, perhaps?
