Hello, I've been hearing about this place here and there on other forums I frequent and thought it about time I paid a visit. My home is in Exeter in south-west England and I play a variety of stuff; blues, folk, bluegrass, faux-celtic.
I look forward to getting to know you.

Loads of really fine Folks here and those that aren't.. well you will catch on quick I think, you being from Exeter and all! *smile* The Good here cancels out the not so good everytime just like elsewhere in Cyberland/Life!.

The mudcat has been a great resource for me for years I have
met many friends here. I play guitar and sing and also play
mandolin, bodhran, and nyckelharpa. I also work with a local
folk music society to host jams (and "open mikes") and present
concerts. I also organize a folk camp out every year at a camp
ground in the mountains.

i also am host of a radio show and have also been host of an
online jam room where we take turns singing and playing.

Andrew,

This is a great site. The conversation is open, free and anyone can say just about anything as long as it's not abusive. I've learned a lot about folk music from this forum and there are people here who really know lots about it. Don't be afraid to speak up if you disagree with anything that's being said. That's part of the fun.

Hi all,
I'm from Brno, Czech Republic. I've started to post to Mudcat only a few days before, but I've been there many many times before. I don't play any instrument (trying to play recorder, but my 10-year-old son is much better) and I'm not very good singer, but I'm trying to traslate some Irish and Scottish songs and shanties to Czech and Mudcat is realy great place rich with information for me. Many many fine people ready to help, many many fascinating threads, almost all the lyrics I've ever wanted to have - all of this I've found here.

Zaba (correct spelling in Czech is Žaba, but I'm afraid, most of you wouldn't see it right - and it means the Frog ;-))

Of course, you can, but I've been afraid most of you will see only such as ugly rectangular instead of my pretty "Ž" ;-). But if you see it right, you can say now you know one Czech word :-).

Žaba my froggy friend,

Is the sound somewhere between a tch, zh, and ch?

Some browsers may not see it right, but oh well!

Susan, that may this sound... it is something like this sound the name Jean (in French) begins... But I've made a mistake saying you know one Czech word with the correct spelling, becouse "žaba" is a dialect form of the proper literary form "žába". In Morava (the easter part of Czech Republic) we say it shorter as "žaba" in Èechy (the western part) they say it longer "žába".
End of the linguistic part ;-).
Jim, it seems I'm a folkaholic too... and my children've got this desease from me - my 4-year-old daughter likes to sing "Look at the coffin, with its golden handles" (in my friend's Czech translation, of course) and my 6-year-old son likes Cod Liver Oil and teachers in the kindergarten are really surprised with such as songs :-).

Interesting word that. "Kindergarten" I don't suppose anyone would send their children if it was called "Sortagarten" or "Cruelergarten". hmmm!

So it's "Zshaba" then? See Weelittledrummer, .... watch him!

Hmmm... is there anything wrong using the word "kindergarten"? They've tought us to use it for the place children can go from they are 3 till they are able to go to school (which is when they are 6 or 7 here). May be "nursery school" would be better?
I can't say whether "Zshaba" would be the right pronunciation, becouse I can't say how to pronounce such as word in English... but it looks rather strange, doesn't it?
Weelittledrummer confuses me, I can't undestand his posts, so I ignore him...
If you are interested, you can try this and hear some Irish songs in Czech ("Poor Paddy Works on the Railway" and "Finnegan's Wake") - I think it could be funny for you to hear these well known songs in such as strange language Czech must be for you :-).

Wee Little Drummer is really nice. I wouldn't pull his leg if he wasn't.
I'm listening to Finnegan's Wake now. This loses nothing in the translation.

Jim, I'm really glad you like it, "Fiannans" are very well friends of mine. And you can't imagine what the pity you didn't see us playing some of these songs as a stage play - who didn't see me starring as an Old Maid in the Garret, doesn't know what the real arts are :-).

Wow! I disappear for a couple of days and suddenly there are something like 80 messages of welcome-thank you all very much for your warm greetings; and I was nicely surprised to see so many people from this neck of the woods.

I'm a new returnee to the folk scene having been playing electric guitar on the Dark Side for the past few years. I've sort of lost track with what's been going on. Acoustic guitar was always my first love since I started playing way back when everything was in black and white. I never really listened to much traditional folk and my mentors were people like Roy Harper, Al Stewart, Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Diz Disley, Ralph McTell, Noel Murphy-all the usual suspects!

Currently I'm working on an acoustic duo project with my best, and oldest, friend with some original material and songs from Planxty, Richard Thompson and others. The next thing I need to do is hunt out suitable venues for the Elderly Brothers...or it might be Airport Convention; we haven't decided yet.

Again, thanks for the warm welcome,
Toodle pip

Andrew

PS Pirandello is the cat.

Pirandello and Zaba

                Welcome from me. 2 interesting names!! I like songs in Czech, particularly by "The Prague Castle Orchestra" whom I saw busking last December at the   ...errrmmm... Prague Castle!! Had to buy their CD and have it on in the car all the time, much to the annoyance of my less cultured friends.. (Stuff 'em, I think PCO are great!!)    Anyone else like 'em??

                Regards to all..... Spot

Spot, I saw the PCO at Prague Castle a couple of years ago and loved them. Unfortunately they weren't on anymore during our stay so I never got a CD.

I should say Hi too.

I'm another one from South Wales, but strangely I also lived in Exeter for two years. I've been singing folk songs of various kinds since I was a very small child with my mother playing the piano for me and my brothers to sing. I've since tried my hand at playing a variety of instruments including fife, flute, recorder, violin and fiddle styles and I still sing when I get the chance, especially now to my little daughter. I have collected two books full of my favourite songs and I'm still keen to learn new ones.
