YouTube Folkmusic Video PermaThread

Subject: YouTube Folkmusic Video Thread
From: Murray MacLeod

  • Welcome, everybody, to the Mudcat YouTube Folkmusic Video Thread.
  • The purpose of this thread is to build up a library of links to recorded music on the Internet in the folk/blues idiom, most of which (but not necessarily all) will be in the form of YouTube videos. Some overlapping between jazz on the one hand and classical on the other is probably inevitable from time to time, but the focus is firmly on folk/blues.

  • Most of the links will be to YouTube videos, but links to archived radio broadcasts will also be welcome, as will links to video sites other than YouTube. Members and guests are equally welcome to submit recommendations.

  • For the purposes of this thread, "folk/blues" has to be classified into several different categories, (as outlined below) in order to facilitate searches for recommendations.
  • The criteria for inclusion in this symposium are, that the videos should be :

    A) of outstanding musical worth and /or
    B) of historical significance.
    ( except in the case of McGrath of Harlow's eclectic videos and Mudcatters's Own Videos ).

  • The criteria are unashamedly subjective, (ie I decide) but the selections are always open to comment on the sister thread We Need a YouTube Permathread.

  • This thread is purely for links to YouTube (or links to other online resources) . Posts will be deleted as soon as the links have been incorporated, and posts which do not contain suggested links will be deleted immediately.(This amendment made 25 February 2007)
  • Any comments, complimentary or otherwise, should be directed to the thread referenced above. We Need a YouTube Permathread


  • Please post links to specific videos, and not to lists of videos by any one performer, or group of performers. Normally, there will only be one link to any one performer, since YouTube will supply cross-references to other performances.

  • Please stay within the boundaries of "folk/blues" as far as possible. These boundaries are wide, I know, but I will not be putting up any links to pop and /or classical , unless they have significant connections to the folk/blues tradition.

    Enough of the rules, on to the content. The classifications are as follows.

  • Americana

  • Vocal and instrumental performances in the American tradition.

  • Blues

  • Blues performances, vocal and instrumental.

  • Irish

  • Vocal, instrumental, and dance performances in the Irish tradition.

  • English

  • Vocal, instrumental, and dance performances in the English tradition.

  • Scottish

  • Vocal, instrumental, and dance performances in the Scottish tradition.

  • African

  • Vocal, instrumental and dance performances from the various African traditions.

  • Contemporary

  • stuff from contemporary songwriters

  • World

  • Anything which doesn't fit into any of the above categories.


  • Almost all links will belong to one of the categories above, but I am also creating several
    instrumental categories, many of the links in these will be duplicated in one of the categories
    above, but it will make it easier for anybody searching for instrumental performances.

  • Guitar

  • Guitar performances of outstanding merit.


  • Mandolin

  • Mandolin performances of outstanding merit.


  • Banjo

  • Banjo performances of outstanding merit.


  • Fiddle

  • Fiddle performances of outstanding merit.


  • Pipes

  • Piping performances of outstanding merit.


  • Miscellaneous

  • Any instrumental performances which do not belong to any of the above categories.


  • Eclectic videos recommended by McGrath of Harlow

  • Self-explanatory


  • Mudcatters' own videos

  • Videos of performances by members of Mudcat

    • This is a PermaThread™, maintained by Murray MacLeod. Feel free to post to this thread, but be aware that all messages in this thread are subject to deletion and editing.

    If you should wish to download a video from YouTube for later viewing, here is a simple little program...(I tested it...it worked fine on my 1st try) It puts a little icon in your browser's titlebar, which you click to get the options banner...then paste the video address in its space and zooom...

    http://www.remlapsoftware.com/

    I used VLC Media Player to play the file, (it plays a lot of formats)

    or here is a stand-alone Flash (.flv) player
    RivaPlayer (I have NOT tried it)

    Subject: Irish
    From: Murray MacLeod

    Irish

    • The Bothy Band at their awe-inspiring best
    • Paul Brady & Andy Irvine singing "Mary and the Soldier". Two giants of Irish music at the top of their form
    • Proinsias Ó Maonaigh (Francie Mooney) being interviewed in Gaelic, and playing fiddle
    • Paul Brady singing the "Lakes of Pontchartrain" in Gaelic, the translation was written by Francie Mooney.
    • Planxty performing "The Blacksmith". There are several clips of Planxty on YouTube, this one shows them in their youthful heyday. Wonderful singing from Andy Irvine.
    • The Dubliners singing Phil Coulter's song "The Town I loved so Well". A truly wonderful clip of the Dubliners in their prime.
    • Grace. probably the most moving song ever written, sung here by Anthony Kearns. Amazing voice, amazing song, amazing story. Normally I don't post videos here which don't actually show the performer singing or playing, but I have no hesitation in making an exception in this case.
    • Paul Brady singing "The Shamrock Shore", in a pub session. Simply superb, from both a historical and artistic viewpoint, this is the kind of video we need more of. Thanks to akenaton for pointing out this one.
    • 400+ videos of traditional Irish music. I will be sifting through these in the weeks to come and highlighting the very best, but they all look good.
    • The West Clare Wrenboys maybe Morris Dancing and Irish stepdancing both share a common ancestor ...


    12 Nov 06 - 04:23 AM (#1883693)
    Subject: English
    From: Murray MacLeod

    English

    • Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick singing "I haven't told her, she hasn't told me". Enchanting clip, bit of a curiosity, it's not exactly "Byker Hill", but rivetting nonetheless
    • The Copper Family just a fragmentary clip of the Coppers singing "Thousands or More", but the only online clip available at present, unfortunately...
    • Traditional shanty sung by the men who actually do go to sea. (thanks to Azizi for this one, I would never have found it by myself)
    • "Dives and Lazarus" sung by a Finnish singer. It doesn't get much more cosmopolitan than this. I just wish Martin Simpson would allow some of his videos to appear on here, including his rendition of this song.
    • "Torn Screen Door" (that's the song title). obviously not traditional, but I feel it fits comfortably in the English traditional category. Nice acapella singing.

    Subject: Contemporary
    From: Murray MacLeod

    Contemporary

    • George Papavgeris singing his self-penned "Empty Handed" (also recorded by Andy Irvine)
    • Peter Paul and Mary singing "The Times They are A'Changing".Of definite historical value, regardless of your opinion of P P & M
    • Emmylou Harris singing her self penned "Diamond in My Crown". One of her most memorable performances imo
    • Richard Thompson singing "1952 Vincent Black Lightning"
    • Eric Bogle singing "The Band Played Waltzing Matilda" with powerful screen images of WW1
    • Eva Cassidy singing Sting's "Fields of Gold". A wondrous rendition by one of the finest female voices ever recorded.
    • Iris Dement singing "Our Town" , from the Transatlantic Sessions. Probably the finest piece of music in the whole series imo. Excellent harmonising from Emmylou, and instrumental support from a stellar group of musicians including Aly Bain and Jerry Douglas

    Subject: Guitar
    From: Murray MacLeod

    Guitar

    • Doc Watson playing "Deep River Blues". Superb fingerpicking from the master.
    • Tommy Emmanuel playing a medley of songs on stage during a concert celebrating Australia Day 2004. The ultimate guitar showman, yet his incredible technical virtuosity never gets in the way of the music. There are many many clips of TE on YouTube, I felt this one was probably the most representative for anybody seeing him for the first time.
    • Chris Proctor conducting a Taylor workshop. This is a "must watch" for all fingerstyle guitar players, his "Huckleberry Hornpipe" at 10.30 in Open G is particularly enthralling and will repay watching over and over again.
    • HAMADA Takasi (to give him the correct Japanese nomenclature), although he is called Takashi Hamada on the YouTube video. This man is truly amazing, his forte is classic ragtime, and in this clip he plays the finest rendition of "Maple Leaf Rag" you are ever likely to hear.
    • George Shuffler demonstrating his crosspicking technique. Shuffler is one of the great originals, ( he played with the Stanley Brothers in the fifties ), and this demonstration should be studied closely by all flatpickers.
    • John Renbourn singing and playing "Abide with Me" , and "Great Dream of Heaven". Effortlessly fluid fingerstyle. Renbourn is playing here at least as well as ever, if not better, on these two hymns, the second of which comes from the great Bahamian guitarist Joseph Spence. He needs to lose the woolly cap, however, imo.


    • Unfortunately, this Renbourn has been removed due to copyright issues. Oh well ...

    Miscellaneous instrumental

    • Mountain dulcimer as good as it gets
    • Ukelele magic. Jake Shimabukuro playing "While My Guitar gently Weeps". (in the middle of Central Park, yet.) This is one of the most famous and most frequently watched videos ever uploaded to YouTube, justifiably so. A million miles from George Formby ...
    • Jerry Douglas playing Donal Lunny's "Tribute to Peadar O'Donnell" and finishing off with "Monkey let the Hogs Out". The sweetest dobro playing you will ever hear.

    • Simon Thoumire, celebrated concertina virtuoso and bon viveur, demonstrating his fluidity, musicality and incredible dexterity on "Madame Bonaparte"

    Murray, I commend you on this idea and thread.

    A few months ago, I made a deal with Stefan Grossman for his entire collection of videos. http://guitarvideos.com/ . We've been encoding, classifying and organizing thousands and thousands of videos for months now. We're also working on a way to deliver these videos for a fee. The goal is to use all the proceeds to fund the mudcat. My optimism suggests that we'll never need contributions again if this works out well.

    I'd be very interested in your thoughts about paying for such videos, maybe a dollar or two per clip. I sure have been enjoying the process of encoding and reviewing them all. They are going to be well organized, professionally encoded, perfectly synced (audio w/ the video). Stefan has one hell of a collection, and I am proud to be involved (and have a copy of every single one of them).

    Please be gentle with me…

    Just a request - some of us, particularly Mudcatters in rural areas, have slow dialup connections, and we cannot access Youtube. When you give links to Youtube videos, could you give us a brief explanation of what we're missing out on? It's very frustrating to see a thread that starts out with nothing but a Youtube link, with no explanation.
    Thanks.

    Before there was YouYTube, there were Mudcat threads about More Online Concerts!

    In that thread you will find links to:

    1. The Kennedy Center Millenium Stage's search engine, where you can find exactly the music YOU define as "folk music". Shows are normally an hour in length, streamed. Performers include artists you know, and artists you would like to know about.

    2. Woodsongs Oldtime Radio Hour's Archive, which is VIDEO as well as sound, weekly, one-hour plus in length, streamed live and downloadable as sound and/or video through their archive. Again, you will find artists and music to fit YOUR definition of "folk music". Performers include artists you know, and artists you would like to know about.

    Some of the links in that thread may not work, but the ones I've described here work.

    Well, that is the editing and harvesting completed for the moment.

    All suggestions have been considered, many have been implemented and some rejected, for various reasons.

    The main criterion for inclusion is the musical merit of the performance, and that is something of which, I am afraid, I have to be the arbiter.

    Many videos posted on the thread have unfortunately been removed by YouTube due to "terms of use" violation. Some of these were excellent videos, and it is indeed a pity that some artistes are unable to see that exposure on YouTube can only be beneficial to their careers.

    Keep posting your suggestions, and do not be offended if I do not include them here.

    Remember, there is absolutely nothing to stop you from maintaining your very own Permathread !

    Now for the fun bit, I can start compiling the guitar, banjo, mandolin videos ...

    Another "More Online Concerts" thing besides Millenium Stage: Actually, they occur in colaberation with Millenium Stage but at Coolidge Auditorium and are a different series. Put on (mostly) by American Folklife Center in their "Homegrown Concerts" series. Aren't too many online not but much worth checking.

    They're ram's & need RealPlayer.

    Abby, the Nov 12th posts are just a number of reserved postings which make it easier for me to edit the thread and add new links as necessary. The date of the post doesn't really have any relevance to the content.

    I suppose, technically, it would have been perfectly possible to accomplish the whole thing on one post (and who knows, maybe I will do that one day) but at the moment this is the easiest way for me to edit the thread.

    Susan, Kat, your suggestions are noted and appreciated, and corrections will be made ASAP. I assume by the "dark green box" you mean Kevin McGrath's section ? Well, that's the whole idea , I was going to make the text dark green as well...(only joking, Kevin, as well you know ! )Keep these eclectic videos coming in.

    good link, Frank, and I will incorporate it.

    I met Stephen Wade in 1975 at the Cambridge Folk Festival (UK) He impressed me enormously with his enthusiasm and knowledge, although to be honest I never thought he was any great shakes as a banjo player.

    that same year Bill Keith was playing with the David Grisman Band , now there was a banjo player. Unfortunately, not much on YouTube that shows his prowess.

    I'm confused, wasn't there another thread just like this earlier? Only, it wasn't so color coordinated.

    I recall posting a YouTube link to my very own folk/blues video of me playing the 51 Highway Blues in that earlier thread and now I can't seem to find the thread or the link. Is simple deletion how recommendations that are not acceptable will be delt with in this thread?

    I also asked whether our own videos were being sought for this purpose or if this collection was focused on gathering videos of those who might have achieved some greater level of the illusive fame factor. I don't recall receiving an answer to my question in that other thread. Would someone here care to field this?

    Murray:

    I don't know if this will work on Mudcat, but a simple, hacky way to force a link to be a different color no matter what is to add:

    style="color:#FFFFFF"

    after the a href="whatever" part. So, here's seeing if this works:

    This link to Google should be bolded and black (and underlined).

    Are style attributes disabled here? I guess I'm about to find out.

    I see it works fine. So, if you don't want to view source, that was:

    <b><a href="http://www.google.com" style="color:#000000">This link to Google should be bolded and black (and underlined).</a></b>

    I think bolding them would be a good idea, too, because together with a contrasting color, it'll make them really easy to see.

    Jean, you are already highlighted ( in Americana ) singing "Blackwaters". As if I would leave you out ...

    There won't be multiple links to the same performer on this thread , since YouTube provides all the necessary links once you click on the URL. (As long as the person uploading has had the nous to include the relevant tags, that is.)

    So, Cruiser's Emmylou/Dolly/Linda link is redundant. Excellent clip but they are already highlighted above.

    Reggie, the criterion for inclusion is that the video should be of outstanding musical quality, or of significant historical value or else so eclectic that it is spotted by McGrath of Harlow. If you really want to discuss the matter of the omission of your video, please do send me a PM, I think it might be better to discuss this "off the record".

    Jeremy C, that is a most valuable piece of info. I shall scurry to my text editor post-haste to give it a twirl, and hopefully soon Kevin McGrath's links will be totally legible once more.

    Keep these suggestions coming in.

    Thank you for clarifying that. That makes sense because to link each song would clutter the categories up with redundancy. We can be expected to do some of the work for you!

    Murray,

    ..."the video should be of outstanding musical quality, or of significant historical value or else so eclectic that it is spotted by McGrath of Harlow." (?)

    I didn't read that in the description of what was going to be included in this thread. Here's what I read.

    "For the purposes of this thread, "folk/blues" has to be classified into several different categories, (as outlined below) in order to facilitate searches for recommendations, and I am also going to operate a "editor's recommendation " system, whereby videos of outstanding musical worth and /or historical significance, will be awarded a "star award" ranging from three to five stars.
    The criteria for these awards are unashamedly subjective, but the selections are always open to comment either on this thread or on the sister thread We Need a YouTube Permathread.
    All genuine recommendations will be catalogued, but please remember that posts on this thread are always subject to editing or deletion."


    What I understand this to mean is just what it says. That some videos "videos of outstanding musical worth and /or historical significance will be awarded a "star award" ranging from three to five stars. The criteria for these awards are unashamedly subjective but the selections are always open to comment either on this thread, or on the sister thread We Need a YouTube Permathread."

    My comment regarding this song submission is that I'm perplexed at just what you consider folk/blues. "51 Highway Blues" is a genuine folk/blues song of old. The authorship of, though I attribute it to Big Joe is somewhat clouded as is the case with so many early folk/blues. It is as historically significant as any other song from this same genre, and perhaps more so as it mentions one of the few roadways that were principally responsible for the spread of this music northward from the Deep South. Recordings also played a role in finding new ears for this music but it was the migration of those who played this music from the Delta to nothern urban centers, places like Chicago, that was primarily responsible for the popularity of the blues. I performed my interpretation of this old gem in the tradition of so many great folk/blues, on an acoustic guitar. Not just any acoustic, but a resophonic guitar of unique design that I hand built from junk I found at garage sales. I adapted my version of this song to be played using a bottleneck slide approach.

    I'm not upset that my post to this thread was deleted. I just didn't know where it went and why my questions were not addressed. I am, however, now curious as to why my genuine, folk/blues, submission wasn't cataloged, especially because of what I read in the introduction to this thread. "All genuine recommendations will be cataloged." Or, is it yet to be included?

    Is your page reduced in width? (With the clicky thing up the top right of the page, next to the cross that closes the browser down.) Normally I find that, when I reduce the browser page, the lines adjust so they don't spill over, but right now that isn't happening. But if it's set on maximum, no problem.

    From: Murray MacLeod

    Thank you Joe, for fixing that glitch. I will also follow up on your suggestion in the PM.

    Now then, Reggie. First of all I would like to point out that I did say in my previous post that we should discuss this by PM, but since you have chosen to go public, well, so be it.

    The fact is, I think you are almost certainly capable of much better than what that video shows. Would you say, hand on heart, that that video shows you at your best ?

    The fact that the song is of historical significance is not in question but that is not the point at issue. For the video to be of historical significance it would need to be a video of the original composer, or else a very early and rare performance (eg the Peter Paul and Mary performance of "The Times They are a Changing" noted above)

    The opening post of this thread was posted up almost four months ago.

    Originally I wanted to make this a thread a symposium purely and simply of superb musical performances of the music which I know, love and understand, but I was persuaded to open it up to much wider criteria. So, as far as the the African, World, McGrath categories are concerned, I just stick the links in without any judgment, because I do not consider myself qualified to make any judgment in these categories.

    In the other categories, however, I do consider myself qualified to make an "artistic judgment" as to whether the video should be listed or not.

    I hope, Reggie, that you will soon come up with a video which will display your talents to their full and I will be more than happy to include it on this thread.

    Murray MacLeod, I understand that the initiator of a Mudcat Permathread has the responsiblility of maintaining that Permathread and that "maintainence" includes determining which posts he or she will retain or delete.

    I also understood and understand from your posts prior to Jan 26, 2007 that you had changed the statement that you had posted at one point that "All genuine recommendations will be cataloged."

    In addition, I recognize from reading your post of 26 Jan 07 - 06:33 PM that all videos submitted to this Permathread are suggestions, and -perhaps apart from Kevin McGrath's section-you are the sole arbiter of the musical merit and/or historical value of that performance.

    Murray, you wrote in your Jan 26, 2007 post that people should not be offended by the decisions you make as to which videos you include on this Permathread. I am not offended, and hope that other people are not and will not be offended by your decisions since the criteria you use is yours, and as is the case with any criteria, other people can agree or disagree with it.

    Furthermore, prior to your Jan 26, 2007 post and ongoing I understand "there is absolutely nothing to stop [another person] from maintaining your very own Permathread".

    Murray, while I understand that you have the right to decide to include or not include any personal video or any other video that anyone posts to this thread based on your judgement of that video,
    I believe that it would have been clearer if you had revised-and would now revise-the criteria that is articulated in your first post.
    That first post still leads people to believe that:

    "For the purposes of this thread, "folk/blues" has to be classified into several different categories, (as outlined below) in order to facilitate searches for recommendations, and I am also going to operate a "editor's recommendation " system, whereby videos of outstanding musical worth and /or historical significance, will be awarded a "star award" ranging from three to five stars.

    The criteria for these awards are unashamedly subjective, but the selections are always open to comment either on this thread or on the sister thread We Need a YouTube Permathread.

    All genuine recommendations will be catalogued, but please remember that posts on this thread are always subject to editing or deletion."
    -snip-

    Furthermore, Murray, I'm not sure what to make of the fact that there is only one video posted in the African section of your Permathread, particularly since you wrote 03 Feb 07 -02:12 PM that "So, as far as the the African, World, McGrath categories are concerned, I just stick the links in without any judgment, because I do not consider myself qualified to make any judgment in these categories."

    That statement seems to imply that this been only one video submitted to the African section. Yet I know that at a given point in time-before I realized your criteria for submission had changed-I submitted numerous African and "world" videos. And other people may have also submitted African videos for your consideration. Given those submissions, I can only conclude that either you are indeed using your judgement to select videos for the African section-which is fine because this-after all-is your Permathread. Or perhaps I should conclude that-with the exception of the Nina Simone video that I submitted- all of the African videos that I and perhaps others submitted to this Permathread "have unfortunately been removed by YouTube due to "terms of use" violation. Some of these were excellent videos, and it is indeed a pity that some artistes are unable to see that exposure on YouTube can only be beneficial to their careers".

    Again, I am not offended by what appears or does not appear on this Permathread and I sincerely hope that no one else is either.

    I do regret that the video links that you did not and do not accept have not been and may not be archived or saved on another thread. But, again, this is your Permathread, and is therefore maintained as you have determined it should be.

    Perhaps, someone or a number of people working together who have the time and skills and interest will team with you or on his,her, or their own will initiate a Permathread that will save those videos that you do not select. If so, it is my hope that that Permathread will have a broader criteria for the inclusion of submitted videos.

    That said, I wish you well with this Permathread, and will continue to open it to see and hear the interesting examples that you post on it.

    Murry,

    A wise man once told me, "Use what you got". Of course, there are certainly many circumstances in life where I would never dream of applying this guide as it can mean taking unnecessary risks. However, this philosophy has proven to be most beneficial to me and my musical pursuits on many levels. I even went so far as to include
    the line in a song I wrote about my midlife Chrysler.

    People say don't play your life away
    Spinnin' your wheels in those same ol' grooves
    I'm just usin' what I got cuz it's all I got to use
    I've got the 65 Newport ragtop blues

    This old ride of mine was funky to look with its caved in rear quarter panel and really ragged top but it served me well. Someday I hope to be able to resurrect it with a few new, or at least, better used tires, rebuild the motor, and give it a face lift with a new top, interior, paint etc but until that time... You see, not all of us have the good fortune to able to obtain the finer things in life, a new SUV or sports car, a home that is considered a showplace, the perfect guitar, the best recording gear, or in this case a video of outstanding musical worth and/or historical significance. Some of us have to make due with much less. This fact has been the source of many a blues song and will no doubt be the source of many more.

    There are two choices one can make in any adverse situation. One can be daunted by the difficulty of a particular circumstance or use the resources that you have at your disposal.

    As Azizi has pointed out this is your thread. You are in control of its content. The best of luck to you on weeding out what you consider the best and the brightest.

    I would say she belongs to the Daniel O'Donnell, Foster and Allen, and Dana school of Irish singing, "good" singers all of them , but imo they don't belong in here alongside Paul Brady and Andy Irvine.

    Yes, it's a more country music version and maybe doesn't belong here.

    I have decided that there should be three more categories in this thread.

    I was quite entranced by Guest Rev's 1950's ad for Brewer's Gold Ale, and it undoubtedly has some historical significance, but could hardly be classed as an outstanding performance, so I am creating a " Quirky Unclassifiable " category for gems such as these.

    Also, it is obvious that come what may , people will continue to put up links to their own, or their friends' performances, irrespective of the artistic merit of the performance, so there will be another category headed "Self- Publicising" into which these videos will go.

    Finally, there should definitely be a category for Mudcatters' own videos. Watch this space ...

    Murray, as I understood it you wanted folks to post not only the link but also a brief description of the content and some suggestions as to appropriate classifications. I noted that many posts were simply links, with no background information to help. I suspected that this was causing you more work. I also noticed that there was a lot of discussion of the links, which I initially thought was not what you wanted to see here in this thread. I now note that since you are involved in some of those discussions I probably misunderstood.

    In summary I thought folks might be creating more work for you by ont following the guidelines that you appeared to lay out clearly in your initial post.

    That is all.

    Once again I find myself astounded at a reaction to a simple post here on mudcat. Having come across this kind of reaction before I had cut back on posting here and stopped using a permathread I had been given for "promotional purposes". I was uncertain about returning here to post anything linked to my business activities. It looks like my reservations were based on firm foundations and that I clearly made an error coming back here. I will make it clear right here and now that I will never make this mistake again.

    Please feel free to delete my post.

    John, the original purpose in my setting up this Permathread was to establish an archive of outstanding performances in the folk/blues field.

    That was back in October 2006.

    Since that date , this thread has been inundated with links to videos from every wannabe in the business, and I do not intend to put up links to every suggestion that wafts through the ether onto this thread.

    The "original post" will be edited accordingly.

    The 3 or 4 David Francey videos that were on youtube seem to have been removed, incuding 'Torn Screen Door' included under 'English' above. Incidentally, it seemed somewhat inappropriate to have included the composition of a Canadian singer/songwriter, albeit an acapella rendition, under the category of traditional English.

    Hi beer...They're celebrating an ancient tradition called hunting the wren who origins are lost in antiquity.

    the tradition is referred to often in folk song, both in Ireland and England

    Ditchfield in 'Old English Customs', p. 32, informs us that a wren-box was sold at Christies a few years ago which used to be carried in procession in some parts of Wales on St. Stephen's Day. It is about seven inches square, and has a glass window at one end. Into this box a wren was placed, and it was hoisted on two long poles and carried round the town by four strong men, who affected to find the burden heavy. Stopping at intervals they sang [The Cutty Wren]. And so on for eight more verses, taking the form of question and answer, as in the ballad of "Cock Robin", and describing the method of shooting the wren, cutting it up, and finally boiling it. (W.S. Walsh, Curiosities of Popular Customs)

    See also The Wren (The King); Wren Song

    [1962:] Some of the most ancient, most enduring and at the same time most mysterious English folk songs are those concerned with the attributes and sacrifice of monstrous animals. At the end of the 14th century, when peasant rebellion was in the air, the old magical song of the gigantically powerful bird (presented by a kind of folklore irony as a tiny wren) took on a tinge of new meaning. For here was the story of a great fowl so hard to seize, so difficult to dismember but so apt for sharing among the poor; and what did that suggest but a symbol of seignorial property?
    (A. L. Lloyd, notes Ian Campbell Folk Group, 'Songs of Protest')

According to one comment he's playing the Rosebud of Avenmore, though I couldn't swear to it, not being familiar with that tune. If you watch to the very end, there's a good close up which shows his technique.

    Sorry if this too academic - "The White Cockade" mentioned above in the Mudcatters videos post is actually in standard tuning. I take the DADGAD comment as a high compliment though. I do use DADGAD and other tunings but wanted to have some of of the big fat modal sounding chords in the song - and get that from standard tuning. I couldn't begin to tell you the names of the chords I use in the song - they're all made up to sound a little DADGAD-ish.

    Also - I have bunch of Youtube videos posted and I'll add more as time goes by. Here's my Youtube Channel

    And there are a few other videos people have posted from my concerts or from projects that I've participated in. Those can be found in this list at Youtube.

    There seem to be quite a few threads for Youtube and I'm a bit confused which one to poet on.

    Thanks Katlaughing......apart from the obvious harmonies (i.e. Wendy) listen out for the excellent job the audience did on the choruses of "Sleep Well"...don't you love it when the "act" and the audience meld together so well.

    I'm also really pleased with our new (first) fiddler....Becks Findlay, she joined a couple of months ago and adds so much to the other songs. Also brings a bit of youth to the group!

    These videos are from only our second gig with the full line up (which was last weekend!). Plenty more between now and Christmas though.

    This one is amazing - Duratrub posts cartoons of lullabies in all different languages:
    http://www.youtube.com/user/duratrub

    This one is the one that caught my attention first - it's a Yiddish lullaby, "Oyfn Veg Shteyt a Boym," by Itzik Manger (1901-1969) - lyrics at Zemerl.

    The title of this particular video is "Kolibyel'niye mira. Idish" I know the third word is Yiddish, but I can't figure out what "Kolibyel'niye mira" means.

    Anyhow, the cartoons and recordings are great.

    I'm late to the party, having just recently joined the camcorder generation, but I put a few more tunes up today, being motivated by pouring rain outside and power failure indoors...(ie camcorder was charged, then the power came back on and so did my PC...no I didn't upload during a power failure, I'm not that clever).

    I haven't been playing much in DADGAD for some years now, but it used to be my mainstay. So today I dropped to those mellifluous D's and A's and went over some old favourites:

    The Outside Track

    Mosstrooper's Lament

    Sitting in the Stern of the Boat"

    The Job of Journeywork

    There's more there too, but that's todays output.

    Can't believe I am doing this.... but well.. er... here's me singing Waterboy with some back up from Clive Lever on keyboard and others providing percussion. Though it is being performed in a pub in Kent, UK, it is Americana, I think. It definitely fits the Mudcatters youtube video category.

    Hey there Mudcat!

    I just added a couple more vids of my band The Skirmish, back in our first year (2006), playing at the Brockville Celtic Festival. I loved Pat Foley's bass playing, (Sue is his sister, the whole family has chops!) but he didn't stay in the band much longer.

    We play mostly standards, but we try to do them justice.

    It is great that this thread survives.

    I an really saddened that almost all the videos to which I linked in the early days, five years ago, have now been deleted due to " terms of use violation."

    There was some really great music there which sadly will now never be heard...

    Jason, I grew up listening to Danny Doyle's "Twenty Years A'Growin'" album. It was what introduced me to John McCutcheon's amazing song "Christmas in the Trenches".

    Which, in turn, led me to post this. Not my very best, but once I get a bee in my bonnet about a song it's hard to resist the urge to fire up the ol' iSight. ;)

    P.S. Which reminds me, I also learned Loch Tay Boat Song from that album...
