I've added a couple of fiddle instrumentals from Songs From Irish Row . I appeared on this album with my "Irish pub pickin' partner" Brian Clancy of Denver, Colorado. We've been playing the pubs all over Colorado since 1998. Brian is a world class "Irish pub singer". We've been playing tunes together on and off since we met at the Walnut Valley Bluegrass Festival in Winfield, Kansas, way back in 1971. You can listen to more samples from this fine album and even buy it if you wish at Brian's website:
The Rainbow Way (added here April 23, 2005), was recorded live July, 2001 at the Idaho Rainbow Gathering. It was discovered at this welcomehome.org music page by my fellow Rainbow picker Julia Farver, who just emailed it to me. I was so blown away by this 6.5 minute recording that I just had to post it here for your enjoyment. I first heard Pete Seeger do this "multi-part group sing along" of the traditional African tribal chant Wimoweh (The Lion Sleeps Tonight), as a child growing up in Evanston, Illinois. A few decades later while singing and fiddling around a huge campfire at the 1979 Arizona Rainbow Gathering, we found ourselves morphing Wimoweh into the Rainbow Way. It has since been sung often, around the world, as it was on this warm night in early July, 2001 at the "Annual Rainbow Granola Funk Talent Show". I was having so much fun, I didn't even realize someone was recording. A fellow Rainbow brother named Tenali made this recording on a Sony Minidisc with a very high quality mike. If you have a good pair of headphones, try plugging them into your sound card, turn up the volume, close your eyes and join us! Also, on March 8, 2008, this Rainbow Way mp3 was made into a YouTube slide show. You'll find it embedded down at the bottom of this page!
