Blog Entry: What is the 'Celtic' in Folk Music Culture?
Linked by Tom Hanway 3 months ago: Today, use of either English or French symbolises social and material success while use of a living Celtic language symbolises powerlessness, backwardness or clannishness.

Tablature: Music for a Found Harmonium (PCO standard version)
Linked by Tom Hanway 8 months ago: Here's a snapshot standard arrangement that matches my tab of the same tune based on the original Penguin Cafe Orchestra version.

The Maid Behind the Bar (standard)
Linked by Tom Hanway 9 months ago: Notice the style of ornamentation for the traditional reel in D major.

Tablature: Bach - Violin Sonata No. 1: Fuga

Telemann Aria 1
Linked by Bullard 11 months ago: a studio take of a Telemann piece being recorded for my forthcoming classical banjo CD that will feature works by Telemann, Bach Handel, Grieg and Schumann. Jayme Stone is producing and shot the video

Tablature: Anach Cuain (Irish slow air)
Linked by Tom Hanway 1 year ago: This arrangement is based on the sean-nůs version sung by the lovely Dolly MacMahon. It's in the key signature of G, but that's misleading because it's A Dorian or D Mixolydian on the uilleann pipes.

Tablature: Rickett's Hornpipe
Linked by Tom Hanway 1 year ago: This is for Bill Keith (RIP), my hero, friend and mentor. Here is a legato arrangement in Celtic Fingerstyle (G tuning, no capo).

20 O'Carolan Irish Classics for 5-String Banjo and All Instruments
Linked by Tom Hanway 1 year ago: Each tune is played twice through on the recording, which is an optional download that matches the transcriptions note for note and chord for chord. I recommend getting the recording as well.

Music for a Found Harmonium
Linked by Tom Hanway 1 year ago: This quirky tune from the Penquin Cafe Orchestra has found its way into mainstream Irish and Celtic music as a reel. I've put it back to its original keys, and it can be capoed up two or four frets.
