Thank you all so much. You all give me more confidence about singing and make me want to do more of it.

Lately I have been missing my high soprano voice. Wish it had been recorded when I still had it. But I can live with what has been given me now.

This Past Carin was recorded on my little digi voice recorder.

The one Will recorded is better quality, but I made this some while ago and now loathe to mess with the video part. Took forever to get the pics in the right order and timing for the audio.

Well, I was gonna let this thread die the death. Very flattered and all that, but also uncomfortable with so much attention.

Anyway today, I mentioned this thread to close friends/colleagues who say that I should make a CD. I told one colleague that I can not afford studio and technician time. She said there might be funding for or free use of recording studio through Arts Development. She has experience in grant dispensation for the Arts.

Now I am wondering....

I would like to make something for my family and friends to remember me by.

Re festivals and gigging....
I am not physically fit enough to do more than about 15 (25 at a stretch) minute concert so gigging is out of the question.   Besides, I am too shy to take centre stage for any more than length of one song in turns. I like the safety of a sing around setting, where expectation is not so daunting. I am just like everyone else there. I do it because I like to sing, sing along with others and have them sing along with me. Gotta say I am knackered the next day after every sing around I attend.

Thanks for all the love.

Tamara

Hi VT: I have been quiet putting my video's on the YouTube as I cannot place or please everybody, I informed you at Lower Stoke, the first time I heard you, your voice/singing needed to be captured and shared. Mudcat/YouTube was my outlet so I am now very pleased that the world can also enjoy what I tried to capture. I will look through my collection and check for some more.

A silly gnu.
One afternoon ...." Said I think I will fly to the Sun?
So with two big Palms taped to his arms?
He started the Take off run?
Mile after Mile he Galloped in style,
But not once did he leave the ground.

'Your going to slow. Said a Passing Crow.
Try reaching ....."The speed of sound"?

So he put on a sprint?
by Christ how it hurt.
The soles of his trainers caught Fire?
There was clouds of Steam ...........Has he run through a stream
But he still didnt get any higher?

Has he ran on through the night.
Both his Knees caught alight.............And smoke bellowed out from his rear>?
Quick to his aid "Came the Fire Brigade. .........."Who chased him for over a year?

Now did that Gnu every get to the Sun.
Well I believe the task is now done?
Fore if you look through your telescope tonight at Half past twelve.
" He will be passing through the AURORA at one.
Kindest regards to all Pierre.

VT such open praise is rare and rarer still it continues for you on this very thread. I get a buzz when I rarely hear folk say ", Pierre,s guitar is improving.( yes Ok Wise cracks welcome`) My eyes maybe shot out but my hearing is spot on. and I get a Natural buzz out of it(More wisecracks welcome)

There are some recordings of a few members of the most excellent Kent crowd (Richard Bridge, Barden of England, Melodeonboy, and the likes) on that same youtube channel "ideasthatsell" made by our very own Fisheye.

If we are talking personal tastes - I love Biker Hill and Marks in the Grass. But that's just me.

BTW for any Americans wondering about hols atm

hols = holiday = vacation
atm = at the moment not automated teller machine

snerk took me a few to figure that one out.

That should be see y'all at Knockholt! I'll have to move this computer out of thr dark. By the way isn't it great that VT is getting lots of praise. I must point out though that these amateur digital recordings although OK don't get close to capturing the full quality of her voice. It would be great if she went into a studio with a decent producer. I will put her in touch with my friend Mitch Hiller when she gets back. Mitch lives in Essex too. He has produced and been vocal coach for the likes of Chaka Kahn, Christy moore, Lulu, Keifer Sutherland(yes)Pet Shop Boys and many more. I'm sure that he can at the very least give her some good advice on recording.

Sounds beautiful, Tam. Hope you have a lovely time...

I came bottom in geography, a very long time ago, as me and maps don't mix, but...if you're anywhere near Newton Stewart during your holiday...pop in and see some fellow Mudcatters and Folkies, Jan and Chris, who run The Cafe Cree there. They'd LOVE to meet you..and their food is out of this world!   

They were regional finalists in Gary Rhodes 'Local Food Heroes' this year...All their food is locally sourced and produced, and you'll be sure of a very entertaining afternoon, because Jan will have you laughing the entire time you're there. She's such a wonderful person, so funny..very warm...and Chris cooks like an absolute dream.

All that AND they play folk music in the cafe too!

The Cafe Cree -in Newton Stewart

Anyway...just in case you're oop that way...
