I'm curious to know what music we play with Mudcat. You might think of this as a bit like a "Come as you are" sort of party, but with better taste. What music are you playing (CD, tape, vinyl, ...), if any, while you read this?

I'll admit that I've got a Clash compilation "Super Black Market Clash" on, along with the Tiger's game.

You caught me in an unusual situation, Will. Right now, I'm listening to near-silence, the sound of the blower on my computer. I almost always have music playing. On the top of my stack of music to listen to is the "Money for Nothing" CD by Dire Straits, since Alison happened to mention them the other day.
Come to think of it, I wish this computer were a litter closer to silent. Wouldn't it be nice to have a computer that didn't make noise?

Glad you asked. I am listening to a fourty+ year old recording of Brendan Behan singing the folksongs of Ireland a cappella. He has obviously been into the crather as he was making the recording, and he sings "The Aul Triangle" on the tape. It is over an hour of him telling stories and singing songs. Very unstructured. The poor quality of the recording adds to the charm. Which reminds me of a story about the Behan's, if you would all be so kind as to indulge me.

I heard the story from Liam Tiernan (one of the founders of Barleycorn) when he was last in my precincts. Apparently he was very close to the Behan's. He tells the story of how Stephen Behan, who believe or not really enjoyed a proper jar of the old dark stuff, was cautioned by his lovely wife, Aul Katch (Old Kate for my english speaking friends), not to spend the day in the pub as she wanted him to dig the garden for planting. Then off she went to work. She wasn't gone 15 minutes, and Stephen was in the Public House enjoying a jar of the heavy. Next thing he knew, most of the day was gone by and he hadn't put the spade to the first shovel of dirt. Now Aul Katch's temper was legendary and he did not want to face her after her warning him that very morning. So he hit on the following idea. He placed an anonymous call to the RIC barracks and informed them that the IRA had a cache of arms buried behind a house in the neighborhood. Then he gave them his address. The lore is that within 20 minutes they pulled up and dug ferociously for the arms, found nothing and left. When the good woman got home, she was pleasantly surprised to find Stephen putting the finishing touches on the sod.

That's Tiernan's story, and in the tradition of my people, You tell it and I'll swear to it.

Slan,

Mick

I don't know whether you really want to know what I've been listening to lately, but here goes.

The last one was Skunk Anansie: Stoosh (a sort of punky gutsy rock band with attitude and a sense of social justice), Kavisha Mazzella: Mermaids in the Well (an Australian/Italian/Bulgarian(?) woman with an amazing voice and a wonderful mix of ethnic styles), some African music, some Moroccan music, some flamenco music, some classical music (Bobby McFerrin: Paper Music, Vivaldi: Four Seasons) and to top it all off a really incredible techno-percussion group called Leftfield, which my boyfriend won't even listen to because it's techno.

Are you sorry you asked, now?

To be honest (I'm at work (lunchtime)) so I'm not listening to anything, were I at home I'd be listening to the people I've most recently seen.
Tenterhooks - Jez Lowe & the Bad Pennies. Some great songs by Jez on this album.

I am listening to a terrific CD...Ancient Voices,, an album of Medieval Russian Music.. Glorious Stuff. I was listening to the new June Tabor album which I don"t like at all. Is it just me or is June Tabor getting to be a bit of a bore these days. Saw her in St. Ives last Spring and was disappointed then as well. I also like to listen to Mary Jane Lammond while I"m typing away.

Well, the old CD player currently has two by Ian and Sylvia ~~ Northern Journey and Four Strong Winds, Bascom Lamar Lunsford, the Buckhannon Brothers of St. Louis, and Songs of the Civil War in it. Clean Living is (or rather was) on the turntable, and the cassette player has Karen Kraft and The Dixie Darlin's of Mt. View, AR in it. But really, lately I have been listening mostly to old time music on the internet from Phil and Gaye Johnson, especially the show with David Holt.

I have a CD player that holds 150 CDs. It contains folk and rock recordings from the 50's through the 90's and country and blues form the 20's on. There's a little bit of bluegrass, some Australian bushbands, some maritime, Edith Piaf's greatest hits, and a recording of Scott Joplin rags. I most often set it for random play so I don't know what is coming next. It's like a radio station with an infinite playlist and no disk jockey.

I just tapped into this computer/radio site. It is pretty good. A lot of ancient "humor" pieces from the time of the great folkscare and a few more recent. All in all, a pretty good mix of new and old folk and folkstyle music.

Midnight Special

This is my first attempt at creating a link, so if this posting doesn't work it only shows that I have much to learn. If, by chance, it does; I owe a lot to the Mudcat threads on HTML stuff.

The last tape I listened to was The Deseret String Band (local, but I believe they are known somewhat outside of Utah) and Smoky Mountain Hymns, a compilation of hymns performed on hand crafted instruments: banjo, dulcimers (both kinds), mandolin, guitar, etc. The next tape is one Murray sent me to test my lyric-interpreting ear: Charley Patton, King of the Delta Blues. (thanks, Murray). I guess he was the king before Robert Johnson was.

P.S. Big Mick, great story. I've seen it before in other contexts, must be folklore;-) I recognize the word 'crather' from the song "Finnegan's Wake". Could you tell us what it means?

I'm on my lunch hour, so nothing playing in the background. However, I just added a new song to my family songbook from an unusual (for me) source.

Heard Randy Travis on Good Morning America the other day, singing a GREAT song called The Hole. Finally found it on tape, so this one song cost me $10, but it makes a great bluegrass number. (My first/only Randy Travis album). You can listen to it at http://www.randy-travis.com/you.htm

Imagine it with banjo instead of steel guitar. Imagine it without drums. Imagine it with high tenor harmony. Imagine not being at work . . .

How funny! It sounds like some of us are probably listening to the same things. I want to check out the Ancient Voices Cd that aldus mentions.

In my CD changer I have Greg Brown's Slant 6 Mind, one of the Sandy Denny Retrospective volumes, Leonard Cohen's more best of collection, Tom Waits The Early Years Vol 2, and Kate and Anna McGarrigle's Matapedia. All I need to do now is hit play. I've been sitting here listening to the traffic noises.

I've been looking at those 150+ CD changers Earl mentions. I like the idea of putting everything in there and hitting random play.

The last things on the CD player were Jean Redpath's "Songs of Robert Burns" and "Old Time Banjo" by Reed Martin, a Wash DC area fellow who seems to have won every clawhammer banjo award and contest known..he is UNBELIEVABLE! (and all the tunes have a real story of how he learned them and such!)

The last 33 1/3's were "Yehudi Menuhin meets Ravi Shankar" and "Ballads of Alaska" by 'Uncle Bob' Pavitt, featuring a sterling rendition of "When the Iceworms Nest Again"

next in line are "Introducing the Beers Family" which I found in a 2nd hand store, and four 10" LP's of Richard Dyer-Bennet!!..

Hi Jon, "The crather" is a way to say "the creature" which refers to whiskey, and most likely John Jamesons very finest Irish (is there any other) Whiskey. Oops, my bias is showing. I believe it comes from the West of Ireland, as my Grandda, who was a Galway man, used it all the time.

Heyla,

At the moment I'm dubbing my "Mind Games" mix - I put together a mix of Celtic/Folk and Classic Rock and am going to drop it off in the mailboxes of a few teachers at my school with a note saying "Let me know if you like the music" and an Email address.. just for fun, to see who responds. The song currently playing is "Reinventing the Wheel", a beautiful little folk song by a local group. Anyone want the lyrics? The song right before it was "Wilderness" by Clannad, the one right after is "Time In a Bottle" by Jim Croce

That'd be great to see for certain. But in a day I'll be gone for a few weeks. I'll look tomorrow and then when I get home.

"Master Of The Sheepfold" , as I was told, was found in Maine by Bill Bonyun. He sang it to Susan Richardson who took it to the New York Pinewoods folk camp in Massachusetts. Jerry Epstein, at Pinewoods, taught it to me. Driving back to Chicago after Pinewoods that summer I stopped to hang out with my old Chicago friend, Cindy Mangsen, who then lived near Albany, New York. I showed that to her then for the first time. Later I changed the language of the song from the very heavy Afrom-American dialect I'd learned it in----"Massa Ob De Sheepfold" became "Master Of The Sheepfold". I think it's now twice as beautiful as it was before. And Cindy & Anne make it sound like an angel chorus! To make this fit into this thread I ought to let you know I'm listening to Cindy & Anne's CD right NOW!

It micht be a strange ceilidh, but it'll be a guid ane!

Yes Grubby

I have heard James Keelaghan live several times and will go put the CD on in a minute, just as soon as Richard Thompson You Me Us is over.

I heard his record on the radio in Northern Minnesota, and then saw him live at the Winnipeg Folk Festival a few years back. I was really looking forward to his mainstage performance -- sort of the grand ending to a glorious festival -- following his set, he was to lead the assembled crowd in a bunch of tunes, including my favorite, Mary Ellen Carter. However, the nasty weather that had been threatening finally broke and he cut his set short and sent us all scurrying back to our campsites. Thunderstorms and tornadoes in Manitoba are not to be trifled with. One of the sound towers was knocked over.

I saw him most recently in North Carolina at a Holiday Inn (!) on stage with a bar on the far side of the stage with NASCAR racing playing audibly throughout. He was a good sport about it.

I haven't cranked up the old CD player since getting home, but I checked out what I was listening to most recently. There is Chuck Brodsky's "A Fingerpainter's Mural." He's a current singer/songwriter with a sense of humor and also an affection for baseball. I plan to learn his song "Blow 'Em Away," a song about roadrage that is politically incorrect. "I rolled down the window, took out my pistol, and I blew 'em away."

I listen to many current singer/songwriter's, the troubadours of today who create the folksongs of tomorrow.

Next to that on the carousel is Robert Johnson's "The Complete Recordings." Maybe I'll learn something by aural osmosis. I am too embarassed by my guitar playing to try to take on any of these classics.

"Wake Up Dead Man," a collection of 'Black convict work songs from Texas Prisons." Again, a renewed interest of mine. Perhaps I will learn one of these as well.

And finally, my 21 year-old son has left a copy of Everclear's self-named CD. I know I wasn't listening to that.
