Album Notes
These tunes, compositions, and arrangements were written and/or arranged on the road in England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, India, and California ... 2006-2007.

Accidentally composed at the Holland House Hostel, London (2006)

Roger Tallroth - tenor guitar & cittern

2. Goat Street (Barry Phillips) (3:35)
Composed in a strong rain and wind storm on Goat Street, Dingle, Ireland (2006)

3. Aubrey Walk (Barry Phillips) (2:52)
Composed in a special house on Aubrey Walk in London (2006).
Recorded on the Goff clavichord (1932), with thanks to the wonderful clavichordist Joan Benson.

Barry Phillips - clavichord

4. Devil in the Bush / Polka d’Auvergne (trad. - arr. Barry Phillips) (3:25)
Two tunes learned from the wonderful playing of Robert Evans and the Kilbrides of Cardiff, Wales.

Barry Phillips - cello duet

5. Räven / Undersven / Bryggan (trad. Sweden & Olov Johansson - arr. Barry Phillips) (4:00)
Olov found these old Christmas melodies from Sweden and added an original tune, “Bryan,” about 2/3 the way through the medley.

Olov Johansson - nyckelharpa
Mikael Marin - viola
Barry Phillips - cello

6. Jig for bamboo pipes (Barry Phillips) (3:17)
Composed in San Diego, California (2007) as a bamboo pipe quartet. At this time I was transcribing new music of Ravi Shankar's at his home, and in my spare time wrote this jig with a tip of the hat to Ralph Vaughn Williams (one time head of the Pipers Guild), and certainly many Indian-influenced rhythms.

Shelley Phillips - 2 bamboo pipes (soprano and alto)
Barry Phillips - 2 cellos

7. Edinburgh to London (Barry Phillips) (2:42)
Composed in 2006 on the train from ... well ... Edinburgh to ... well ... um ... London.

Jesse Autumn - double harp
Barry Phillips - cello

8. Wayfaring Stranger (trad. America - arr. Barry Phillips) (5:01)
Initially arranged in 1990's, and finished in 2007. This arrangement has a sort of "sci-fi / shape note / Delius" inspired head and tail, with a Darol-inspired middle.

Darol Anger - 2 fiddles
Barry Phillips - 2 cellos

9. Årepolska (trad. Sweden - arr. Barry Phillips) (3:39)
Learned from Louise Wanselius at the Pentreffest gathering 2006, Cardiff, Wales.

Louise Wanselius - 2 fiddles
Barry Phillips - 2 cellos

10. Norm's Jig (Barry Phillips) (2:45)
A tribute to woodworking guru Norm Abram - nice guy, master carpenter and maker of complex woodworking jigs - so I thought I'd make him a complex "musical jig" in 15/8 time with dove-tailing sections. Composed on the flight to Kolkata to pick up my "jawari" cello (2008).

Mike Marshall - mandolin
Shelley Phillips - oboe
Todd Phillips - bass
Jesse Autumn - double harp
Barry Phillips - cello

11. Planxty Väsen (Barry Phillips) (3:36)
Ireland ... Sweden ... epic old B&W movie vibes --- all these sort of things meet up in this tune to honor some very good friends/musicians/composers. Composed at Goat Street, Dingle, Ireland.

Barry Phillips - cello quartet

12. ReSa (Barry Phillips) (4:40)
Playing with the Indian sargam (solfege) letters of ‘R’ and ’S’ representing "Ravi Shankar", ‘G’, ‘M’, and ‘P’ representing respectively "Guruj", "Guruma" & "Pandit-ji". Though dedicated to Ravi Shankar and family, this music has a slight Swedish vibe (as did just about everything I did in 2006-2007). Composed at The Ravi Shankar Centre, Delhi. (2008).

Tanmoy Bose - tabla
Barry Phillips - Indian cello (w/jawari), cello quartet, & cittern

13. Skålet Troll (Scalded Troll) (trad. Sweden - arr. Barry Phillips) (2:45)
Learned from Olov Johansson and recorded live at the Santa Cruz Baroque Festival, 2007.

Olov Johansson - nickelharpa
Barry Phillips - cello

14. Polonesse in h-moll (trad. Sweden - arr. Barry Phillips, after Mikael Marin) (2:42)
Learned from the playing of Mikael Marin off Höökensemblen’s first CD. Mikael’s arrangement really deepened its mood and I tried to continue its journey into the mysterious landscape he first created. Recorded live at the Santa Cruz Baroque Festival, 2007.

Olov Johansson - nickelharpa
Lars Johannesson - flute
Linda Burman-Hall - harpsichord
Barry Phillips - cello

15. Offering (Barry Phillips) (2:34)
A small offering - a thank you - to Ravi Shankar - my teacher and guiding light for nearly twenty years - now gone - and always present.

Jesse Autumn - double harp
Barry Phillips - Indian cello (with jawari) & cello ensemble
