I Love It … .I can almost taste the salt in the air.
@valsvil - Just me. No, I lied. There was also a bottle of rum involved.
Is this all you? In any case impressive vocals!
Someone needs to take the Dr’s prescription pad from him. I think Gobbels would appreciate this bold rewriting of history. Its sweep is asphyxiating
Jolly good stuff
I love it! Let’s keep them all honest.
We have a few “TALL TALE TELLERS” in our midst right now.
Pretty awesome!!! How did I miss this!!!!
Love this! The pipes bring the perfect melancholy to the lovely melody and visual lyrics
You got the touch Robert! This is an outstanding tale put to song.
very professional sound
You got the spirit of Christmas right here Robert!
Merry Christmas! I hope you make bail.

Too much, and well done!
Yar aughta post em wurds, ya scurvy dawgs!
Oops …. Forgot to log in
My feet are tapping! You got my attention with this one too.
I’m wondering how your folk festival adventure in England went. How about posting a vocal interview here ? Give us the high lights.
I’m 100% sure that way more people like (or even love) your music than you will ever know. Most people who listen to it on the Internet simply don’t Feedback, because - who is not always in a hurry these days?
Anyways, I think you are an extremely talented folk musician, and you write and perform very nice, catchy songs.
Good stuff!!! sounds great
I played this in Harwich, Essex England at an informal gathering of festival artists and local maritime music enthusiasts and they loved it. For me to get to play that song in that place for such people and have them like it was one of the greatest of many great experiences I’ve had playing music over the years.
Outstanding Robert! You truly have created your own sound and fit it perfectly to Edward Lear.
That sounded fantastic! it would be fun to see your whole performance.
Outstanding! Robert … You got the touch!
This is just unbelievably good !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Who would have thought it all comes down to the size of your Shillelagh.
This is just the best!!!!! I am guessing all those who venture there will be singing this in their sleep as the rats and roaches have an orgy. Hilarious!!!!
Happy New Year to you!
Another Masterpiece! I’m laughing out loud. You got the touch Robert!
I don’t know the sparser version, but I really like this one!
Not exactly an amateur, huh? :D
Wow, this is a fantastic song, right up my alley!
Great! Cool accent! :)
Goin to get some rum
Really nice production! You’ve obviously been to that joint a few times.
Now what about a tune “Minnesota Mosquitos”?
Who the heck are you? Never saw the man before in my life, officer!
Uhm, right. That explains why James Taylor was such a flop.
I love it that you’re doing mandolin. I want to do more with it myself but it is PAINFUL!! (Not to mention tuned in blasted 5THS!!
Love it. I get a total sense of how great that hiking is without having to throw my back out of joint schlepping a heavy pack, soaking my aching feet, or providing culinary delights for the Minnesota State Bird!
That’s a fine soundin’ mule you got there.
Nicely done. Had to replay this one.
Dang… I just went thru a 3 hour session yesterday with a new trio and all we drank was tea. The 2 other guys ARE Brits… but still. Wine next time!
I’m having a déjá vu moment here. Is it possible I’ve heard a different version of a tune sometime? Or am I just suffering from campaign 2016 mind rot?
Reminds me of the night I was drunk and adrift in a longboat.
“Smells like cabbage” - too funny!! This is great pirate song! The uke evokes a tropical island that has been visited by pirates.
And ye’ve learned well yer pirate speak, briny wench… arrr!
Only a true Minnesotan could write a pirate song like that LOL! Shiver me timers but I like it. Open tuning, flutes… awesome arrangement. Fav fav fav.
No no! I don’t want to hear about SNOW yet!! :-D
Reminds me of my trip a couple of years ago starting in Las Cruces and ending up in the old ghost town of Pinos Altos, not far from Silver City. If you ever get the chance, go there!
Reminds me of the drunk brought into night court:
Judge: “Well, what brings you here this time?”
Drunk: “Two -hic- p'licemen!”
Judge: “Drunk as usual, I see.”
Drunk: “Yep. Both of ‘em.”
Nice tune. Nice production work. Like that clean guitar tone.
Every now and again I just have to come back for a dose of Rosie. She just makes me smile.
Greg Connor - actually there’s some true story in there. My wife and I had overnighted in Las Cruces and visited the historic village of Mesillia next day. There was a little “cafe” (bar!!) on the corner of the square. We wanted lunch. We stuck our noses in and were informed that it was “Taco Tuesday”… 50-cent tacos and $1.00 Samuel Adams pints until 5 pm. We were on vacation. SOLD! Ordered 6 not knowing that New Mexico’s popular variety of taco has mashed potato inside. Ugh! Too stuffed to jump!
“You’re the bubble in my brew” - love it!!
That one is getting added to my collection of late night highway cruising tunes. Wish I’d had it when I used to drive all night between gigs in your general neck of the woods. Don’t have that much use for the collection these days, but ya never know.
Andres Russe: Rum is indeed an important ingredient.
It’s the main ingredient of this one:
What would you do with it if you DID catch it? :-D
That’s after bein’ right a loovly tune, me boyo.
Singin’ the blues! I think the first 2 lines are the same as “Blue Night”, but then it goes off into it’s own realm. There’s nothing like a reso for the blues. One of these days I should pick up a decent one. BTW - resophonic/dobro with slide is getting really popular here. There was just a big festival going on down in Moscow recently.
That’s the way to propose!
