Traditional Irish Music
Finding this site along with Irish Tenor Banjo has been quite exciting for me these past few weeks. On other sites, the welcome for some of this music is not as warm. Yes there are those who like "Celtic" music, but far and few between. Over the pond here in Canada bluegrass seems to have taken front seat, along with Old Time Music as a very close second runner up. The trouble with the "Celtic" label over here is that all music from the United Kingdom has been grouped together. it is hard for most folks to understand the subtle differences with the traditional from the marketed music. Other traditions are easy to separate, such as Italian, Finnish, Aboriginal, and so on, but for some unknown reason ITM and Scottish are hard to separate. Oh well.
I have picked up a lost love; the Irish Tenor Banjo, so I am sure you will forgive me if all my music renditions are with this instrument at this time. I will put up a few fiddle tunes soon.
I have, yet another tune for you. It is called "Slow Barn Dance". I found this on the BBC Radio 2 Folk & Acoustic site @ http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/r2music/folk/sessions/
Here is my rendition of it and the sheet music if you like;
Hope you enjoy.
