Casey

It's in the Digital Tradition Database. click here. I found it by typing [stone outside] in the DigiTrad Lyrics Search box at the top of the page.

Typing something in square brackets tells the dearch to find the exact phrase, but I guess it's not easy for a newcomer to find out where it tells you that.

Welcome. Hope you find many more.

Susan, thanks.

Autobiography time? Hmmm...

I was born in Southern Illinois; most of my relatives are midwesterners. My favorite ancestors are Thomas Paine and George Burroughs, which probably explains both why I shoot my mouth off too much and why it has been predicted that I'll be hanged some fine day...

I grew up in Houston, and was most fortunate to discover folk music by accepting a part-time job while I was in high school, working for a neighbor who owned a little place called Sand Mountain Coffee House. I learned some of my first songs on guitar there, from Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, JJ Walker, Allen Damron -- such folk when we were all young. It was magic.

I live now in Amarillo, "interesting" town but pretty devoid of folk music, a few true friends and me mum here still to care for. I have one brother, who lives up in Fairbanks but comes down during the winter to enjoy our balmy 40-degree weather and only 10 or so inches of snow now and then. I have one son, now serving his second enlistment in the Marine Corps. I have no man, having lost the last one to a bottle; right now, can't see the point in forming that kind of attachment.

I play in a folk trio, moi (guitar, sometimes the tenor banjo), a keyboard whiz, and a viola. I'm a low whisky-voiced alto at best, a high whisky-voiced tenor more like it. The viola player is soprano, so we harmonize fairly well. We mostly do Celtic stuff when in public, there being the most call for that here, but we play around with '40s music, blues, all manner of songs.

There, more than you wanted to know. My life in four paragraphs.

Well, okay, I left out the weird parts...

What I do in music? Well.. I play the guitar and bodhran, and besides that I sing. I'm from the Netherlands, and there I try to join a traditional folksession every week. Most of the music we play is Irish or Scottish. This summer I hope to move to Edinburgh (Scotland), to live there for about two years (at least). I'll hope to be accepted as a student over there and then I'll join a lot of sessions too! If you have any suggestions...

Have fun! Marieke.

Pssst! Watch out for the bodhran-player jokes here, you'll find trhat when people get bored they pick on bodhran players! When this happens, be sure to retaliate with banjo jokes.

When you get to Scotland, you can post threads here asking about sessions.

I'm a Dallasite by birth (VERY rare these daze). I've played some instrument or another all my life.

I'm not really "new" here. I've played several times on the MudCat Radio program by phone. I've lurked around a bit and GUEST commented on many occasions.

I play all styles of music. My favorite being "that which I'm playing at the time."

I too, know of SARAH2's Sand Mountain in Houston. John (the owner w a y back then) paid me $15 one night when I was stone broke and still wet (as a folker) behind the ears. I still see him at the Kerrville Folk Festival most years and purchased a Breedlove from him at his shop (Sand Mountain Music) a couple of years ago. I've swapped with Townes, BW, Willie, Phil Ochs, Jerry Jeff, Seeger and a slew of others in different genre's and opened for a number of pretty fair performers.

I'm still waiting for a visit down here from (I believe)Rick. He wanted me to teach him what I was playing on his show.

This is a great community. Eventually some do die by fire, but there are more than enough new replacements (it keeps growing and growing and growing . . .)

Hi, I slipped into Mudcat last Sept, I guess, without any formal introduction, so here it is. I live in Seattle, retired for the 2nd time from the Univ. of Washington, retired the 1st time from St. Olaf College (Northfield, Minnesota) 4 1/2 years ago as Chem. Prof. and moved to Seattle. My new career is as an umemployed musician - I can afford it now.

I was born and grew up in So. Calif., went to Pomona College and the Univ. of Illinois where I studied Chemistry, but also music (voice). My interest in folk music had it's roots in listening to the Grand Ole Opry on radio, Sat evenings in the early 50's. Later did much classical music (opera workshops, choral groups, etc.) but am now back to folk music (more freedom of expression). I enjoy trad music of the British Isles, and have recently gotten into Klezzmer and Yiddish music. I sing, play guitar and fiddle (studied classical violin as a kid, but quit in high school and only took it up again a few years ago).

Here in Seattle, I coordinate an open mic/acoustic concert venue in the Ballard area for Victory Music, and am active in Seattle Folklore Society's weekly song circle. I enjoy performing at our open mic. I also am organizing a new trad (British Isles & Northern Lands) music jam - both instrumental and vocal. So with my retirement, I am as busy as ever, but also get to practice my music more.

Cheers, S. in Seattle

We are Art and Jenn (except Jenn mostly doesn't do chat lines). My job has moved me around the country, and we have started or joined song circles in Salt Lake, Seattle, Madison (WI), Erie (PA) and now in Prescott (AZ). We folk and contra dance and enjoy folk music generally and (me mostly) particularly Celtic. We have, from time to time, dabbled in Balkan, Israeli, and Yiddish music. Jenn plays guitar and I bang on the bodhran. And most of the bodhran jokes have at least a grain of truth.

I've never been much of a joiner, and I can't say I'm terribly impressed with an outfit that'll take me on as a member. However, I've been sneaking in and rustling lyrics from the Digital Tradition for a couple of years and finally decided to do the honorable thing and show up in daylight, so to speak.

Some of you may know from other threads that I'm a cowboy poet and singer, a grammar fanatic (or, as I prefer to think of it, a lover of language), and somethng of a wise-ass. In yet another thread someone recently asked for the definition of a curmudgeon. I told my wife, a woman of nearly infinite patience, that I was thinking of sending him my picture and she said, "You aren't a curmudgeon -- you don't have the dedication."

I was born in Virginia instead of here in Colorado as nature intended. I blame my parents for that. But I got here as soon as I could, and I don't feel at home anywhere else.

My interest in folk music was awakened during the Great Folk Scare of the 60's. I had the privilege of studying under Arthur Kyle Davis at the University of Virginia, so I learned a good deal about traditional music. I once wrote a 70-page paper on "Captain Wedderburn's Courtship" which is an interesting song, but not *that* interesting.

In 1963 I saw Ian and Sylvia at Newport and from that moment I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life. I have made my living as a performer, but I suffer from Multiple Musical Personality Disorder and it wasn't unusual for one set to include a Childe Ballad, a cowboy song, "Casey At the Bat", a Tom Lehrer tune, an aria from some obscure opera -- well, you get the idea. It's hard to find a core audience for something like that since the Commercial Folk Era ended, though possibly not so hard as I might think judging from the discussions that go on in this arena.

Four years ago I wrote my first cowboy poem, and since then I've pretty much specialized. I haven't lost interest in any of the other kinds of music I've always loved, but I think maybe concentrating on one has been beneficial. And I get to hang around with a better class of people at Cowboy Poetry Gatherings. Kinda like here.

Anyway, thanks for the welcome, and remember -- breakfast is the most important meal of the day, because if you ain't home by then, partner, you're in trouble!

I do some singing with another band called Morrighan so this Mudcat site is a treasure trove!!! Enuf of me - can ANYONE help with the request I posted today???. My first attempt at this. Thanks to all for the welcome.

Hey, cowboypoet, thanks for introducing yourself. My grandpa used to sing a version of Captain Wedderburns Courtship long,long ago, so your 70 page paper sounds interesting enough to read! I haven't checked the DT yet but if your scholarship isn't in there, maybe someday you could add it?

I am pretty new too so I guess I have to step up and introduce. I just like ballads and beautiful tunes and Donegal roots music. Usedta sing for people but got a few too many 'you know any James Taylor' requests and stopped trying. Grew up in Chicago with all the other marymargarets but have spent my adult life mostly in the South. I'm in Jackson, Miss. Current musical interest: arranging for four-part vocal. I'd like to try Wild Mountain Thyme next because I think it would be so accessible to people around here, but am I going to go through copyright hell over a contested authorship, I wonder??

many thanks to Max and all those who share so much lore and music with so many people, even those who try their souls.

PattyClink

(is this where you have to explain yer nickname? this is an island nickname; were I from Arranmore or Beaver Island, there would be so many people with my first and surnames, I would be given a shorthand name reflecting who my da was)
