DT Lyrics:







Subject: Hi everyone
From: Mr Furrow
Date: 01 Nov 02 - 08:18 AM

I'm a newbie here and "tripped over" the site via our MP3.com presence.

We are Straight Furrow, originally a barndance band and now doing some recording of new and original material too. It's mostly in the Celtic genre.

On the offchance that there's anyone reading who hails from Norfolk in England, we've got a public gig (a barndance)on 9th November at Woodnorton Village hall - that international centre of culture with which I'm sure you're all familiar.

Anyway, if you feel inclined, you can sample our wares at www.mp3.com/straight_furrow or take a peep at our own site at www.straightfurrow.co.uk


Hope to talk to some of you soon.

Cheers
Jon

Welcome with open Arms

If you go to the top right hand side of this page, and use the drop down box for "Members Photos and Info", then go to "Location", hopefully you will find a memeber in your viscinity.
It's a starting point.
Welcome again.

Mr Furrow
you're very welcome to our kindly friendly world. A word of advice: you use the phrase "Celtic genre". Never, ever, start a discussion using this phrase on Mudcat. You won't know what hit you!!
Sorry can't come to your gig, a bit far away.

Yeah Greg, that whole "genre" thing is a real minefield just about everywhere :)

I tend to use it just as a staring point so people will know we're not into sea shanties or whatever. We've been playing together for about 12 years and never gave a thought to genre until we started posting some songs on MP3.com and they force you into specifying. Also we were lucky enough to get taken up by a publishing company and they're REALLY genre-conscious. I suppose that's because they're commercially driven and get over sensitive to these things. Ho-hum, we just play the stuff we like and hope for the best.

Hi Mr Furrow.
Welcome a board the ship of fools.
Lots of UK Mudcaters here. I'm based in Eccles Manchester, but north of you in Hull it's Crawling with em, as you'll find out.
Greg's right about the "Celtic" thing; just start a thread called something like "What have the Celts ever done for us" and you'll see.
Hell I'll do it just to give you an intro to this place.

All the best PP.

You're quite right of course. Perhaps I should start that thread, I've always wanted a clear-cut, well-defined and unversally acceptable definition of folk music. Do think I'd get one?

Yours with a wistful shake of the head

Welcome (just 1!) from across the pond in Pennsylvania, home of Mudcat (which explains why all posts are dated according to US Eastern time)! Guess I'll have to wait for Straight Furrow's US tour (or the CD) to hear your music.

Enjoy the Cat!

Hi,Jon.

I welcome you to Mudcat. I am the wife of "53" and he is a man of few words. Actually I found the cat and signed up as 53, the year I was born. As time went on it reached a point that Bob was posting more than I so now people understand that he is "53". Sometimes I post as 53 but am careful to state that it is I doing the posting, sometimes with only a little "g".

Bob is a guitarist and is teaching me to play. Tell us about all the instuments you play.

Oh, we live in the US, in South Carolina, near Myrtle Beach.

Hi again, Jon Furrow! :^) Sorry, but if the music is not in MIDI format, I can't get my Macintosh computer to play it. Maybe someday I'll have time to figure out why, but not today!

Catch you later,

Hi Glenda

Sorry to hear you are at work :o) I'm avoiding it today and sitting here chatting instead.

We're a 3 piece band and I'm mostly heard on soprano recorder and transverse flute but there's evidence of my alleged mandolin playing on a few of our recorded tracks. In our live sets I play some guitar too.

Brian plays guitar, mandolin, lute, violin and harmonica and he writes the original material (songs and instrumentals) which we mix in with the traditional stuff.

Susan plays keyboards, bass, melodeon and recorders with the band and is our dance caller too.

Susan and I are partners and Brian is one of our oldest and closest friends so gigging and recording are just like really intense social events for us.

All the best to you & 53
