This tune came up in response to my children leaving home in the 90's. My friend Glen Copeland added the vocal track. I included this in Banjo Suite released in 2000.

last track on Banjo Suite 2, commissioned for a friend's 60th birthday (Bob). It was supposed to be Polish sounding, so after listening to Polish folk music the only aspect I could incorporate was a pattern of moving back and forth from major to minor key. He grew up in remote northern Manitoba on the Fir River and the river was a source of sustenance with joy and sorrow. There are some added banjo tracks to mimic the babbling sound. I added a simple djembe with shaker.

composed for an open mike music night for songwriters on the topic 'Possibilities' at Hugh's Room in Toronto (about 10 years ago). don't know how to classify it - kind of bluezzy.

D-tuning with other instruments played by me and I'm not a multi-instrumentalist! - with middle section waiting for a fiddle or guitar lead. There are a lot of interesting melodic possibilities in D-tuning.
