Found this one on John's youtube page and thought I would try it.

Having trouble with Soundcloud which seems to upload things twice.  Strange.

Have been playing around with this very old tune for a while now, but still having a bit of a problem with the second part. Nevertheless still a very nice tune to play on the mandolin

Very quiet on this forum.
Has a go at "Da Silvery Voe" today.  I really like these slow airs.  I can just about manage to play them!

Nigel's Online Music School

I have decided to try to offer some online tuition, and over the next couple of days I'll be asking for volunteers to help with test sessions. If you're interested, or if you wish more information about my online teaching activities, please let me know (email me).

Couple of questions on this one.

Does anyone have the sheet music with chords?

Have seen it played as a Scottish dance reel but other's say it's Irish any thoughts.

Parthenia

An old English tune which I got from Savourna Stevenson's LP Pickled Tink (1985). I've also heard Dave Swarbrick playing the tune (on his Flitting album).

  BMG Festival in Edinburgh
Posted by: nigelgatherer - 06-03-2020, 09:06 AM - Forum: Nigel Gatherer's Workshops - Replies (1)

The BMG Festival in Edinburgh on the 27th, 28th and 29th March 2020 has been cancelled due to the covid-19 virus. It was to be held at Merchiston Castle School, but they have pulled the plug. It seems fairly certain that the larger Harp Festival will suffer the same fate. Cor blimey.

I'm very disappointed, as I was doing two workshops, manning a stall for my books, judging contests and MC-ing the Saturday evening event. But what can you do?
