This song graced our living room this morning. Your guitar playing on this is amazingly delicate, but it’s the lyrics that got both Rita and I laughing out loud. Now …. that’s poetry.
You have always had a clean production style. This is professional. Is that the audio production course, or just natural ability?
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
Big clean transparent sound. Wish I knew how you do it. (Good blues tune too!)
Congrats on being able to retire. I probably never will. You got much more than stories left, sir. You got songs!
Nice use of 12-string acoustic.
Those acoustic guitars sound super.
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 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.
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.
