ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Little Sparrow, Shady Grove, Little Sadie, Lightning and Thunder, Black is the Colour, Jerusalem Mourn and the set of tunes and songs in the Eat Some Breakfast Set (Oh Come See Me When You Can, Fish on a Hook, Sugar Hill, and Garry Dawson’s Tune) were learned from a recording called Far in the Mountains, four CDs of tunes and songs collected by British folklorist Mike Yates during trips to Virginia, North Carolina and Tennessee between 1979 and 1983. What a goldmine of traditional Appalachian folk music! Far in the Mountains is available from Musical Traditions Records.

What’ll I Do with the Baby-O, Whiskey Before Breakfast, Pretty Betty Martin and Old Joe Clarke belong to the repertoire of tunes we learned and played (over, and over, and over…) during our years with the Grand River Dulcimer Club in Guelph, Ontario.

Soldier Boy is a Civil War-era song learned from the singing of Custer LaRue and the Baltimore Consort.

Step Back/Mrs. Casey are two tunes from the playing of British melodeon ace Richard Arrowsmith: the first was heard on the stage at the Mill Race Festival of Traditional Music, and the second was recorded by Crucible.

This traditional tune was performed in the movie “The Little Kidnappers” by the house band (the Barra MacNeils) during the wedding scene.

Will Ye Go to Flanders? is a traditional Scottish song Jean learned a long time ago.

If I Were a Blackbird is a traditional song that crossed the ocean from the UK to Nova Scotia.

Blue Bonnets Over the Border is a Scottish pipe tune that shows up in many forms, including as a march, an air and a song. It’s used as a Regimental March by the Calgary Highlanders.

The Jolly Raftsman-O is a traditional Ontario song found in the Penguin Book of Canadian Folk Songs.
