  Mystery Jig .. ?
Posted by: Dick Glasgow - 28-09-2016, 06:01 PM - Forum: Other Music - Replies (8)

Does anyone know this Jig?

I was asked its name recently but names are not my strong point.

Sounds Irish to me, but maybe not. 

Mystery Jig

Cheers,
Dick

  Beyond a Joke
Posted by: nigelgatherer - 25-09-2016, 05:56 PM - Forum: The Gathering Forum Admin - Replies (1)

I've come to the forum to see that 30 accounts are waiting for activation. Most, if not all, will be bogus. Most of them will be obvious: name doesn't match the user name, or the email address is blatant advertising. However, there are always some that are ambiguous, so to give them the benefit of the doubt, I search for them. Very often their email address comes up in "Stop Forum Spam", but not always. All in all, it's a pain. I didn't have the problem before because I insisted that everyone asked me to join the forum, but in the new forum, some people had problems logging in.

I'm going to try it out soon, to stop all this nonsense, so if you have any problems with the changes, please let me know.

  Excuses no longer accepted....... "Murdo"

I'm getting really frustrated that no-one is playing this lovely tune in sessions.

Here's Aiden O'Rourke teaching it at a lovely gentle pace. You have no excuse now..   Wink

  In A Taynuilt Garden
Posted by: John Kelly - 06-09-2016, 04:04 PM - Forum: Scottish Music - Replies (10)

I recently was given this lovely tune by two fiddle friends, Jennifer and Jim Louden.  It was composed by Charlie Gore and this is all I know about the tune at present.  I wonder if this is the same Mr Gore who manages the index of Scottish Fiddle Tunes?

I was so taken with the tune that I have produced a mandolin version here using the score and harmony I got from J and J, and playing it on a mandolin I completed last August.

  Canons Gait
Posted by: Eric R - 06-09-2016, 03:58 PM - Forum: Other Classes, Workshops, Events - Replies (8)

Just to remind folks that the Canons Gait session starts up again on Wednesday 7th September. For those who haven't been before, it's an extremely friendly session and offers a warm welcome to anyone who wants to pop in and see what it is like. Around 18-25 of us usually turn up, and play tunes at anything from slow to reasonably quick tempo. Nothing too fast at all. We meet from 9.00-11.15 in the Canons Gait pub (recently renamed The Gait) in the Royal Mile about 100 yards down from the traffic lights at St Mary's Street.

Video Co. Antrim group: Scad the Beggars!
Posted by: Dick Glasgow - 06-09-2016, 03:24 PM - Forum: Other Music - Replies (2)

Hi folks,

Here's my 1st post to the new Forum ... hope it goes well Nigel.  Cool

It's a video of our wee group, playing over here in Norn Iron last Saturday at the 24th Broadisland Gathering in Ballycarry, Co. Antrim.

As you'll see, we play a wide variety of instruments, including Hammered Dulcimer, English Concertina, Fiddle, Northumbrian Pipes, Moothie, Whistles, Guitar, Harp, Fifes, Oboe & Piano Accordion. ... Sorry Nigel, we left the Mandolins at home this time.   Blush

We play a mix of Scottish tunes & songs, plus some Northumbrian & Irish tunes.

Cheers,
Dick

  Tune suggestion/recommendation
Posted by: kypfer - 28-08-2016, 11:42 AM - Forum: Scottish Music - Replies (2)

Whilst browsing around I came across a selection of fiddle tunes, many of which seem to have a Scottish heritage or influence, one of which particularly took my fancy.

You might care to check out "The Grey Widow's Song" included at http://www.riddellfiddles.co.uk/index.ph...resources/ (about half-way down in the "G"'s).

Nice and slow, so suits my skill levels admirably, but with sufficient "flavour" to make it interesting to play Smile

I've included a link instead of a listing just in case of any copyright issues - enjoy !
