This song sets a breathless pace. It's about a girl who dances everyone else under the table. Lyrics: Dancing through the crowded room A silver band in her hair Weaving, whirling, on her toes There's music in the air A lover taps his…

A happy little tune about a long road trip my wife and I took this summer. Lyrics: Well we were young and we were free And it was you and it was me And we were out long after midnight And the sun was shining all the night through…

Conjured up happy memories of the trip my wife and I took up the Alaska Highway many years ago, when we were young. It was our first trio together.

I like your style of playing. I play a little music with a friend who plays harp. It’s a beautiful instrument!

This is one of my favourite traditional tunes, for sure. This one pairs well with my last upload, A Harp in the Night. Maybe the two will become a medley... anyway, enjoy!

Picture an old tavern just up the way, and music spilling into the street. My first REM submission! Put in for April.

Thanks, Greg! Close: the lead is a mandolin. It has a fuller sound than normal because I recorded two tracks with a mandolin playing the same thing. There's also guitar, bass, harp, pennywhistle, bongo, and bodhran in there.

This is beautiful. I’m guessing bouzouki but I might be wrong.

Another silly little tune, this time about the world's favourite stout! (Edit: uploaded a new version. Fixed a few mistakes.) Lyrics: When the sun is up high, in a bright blue sky And you're walking around in Dublin town You got nothing…

Fun song! I’d like to hear you sing that after having a few Guinness.

A little more rock and roll than my normal mellow vibe. I might play around with this some more, but for now, it is what is :) Guitar, bass, bodhran, vocals, and a casio keyboard drumkit.

Woah! Wasn't expecting that! But yeah - play around with it some more. It's got a cool vibe.

I dreamed this song once, with Eddie Vedder on vocals. It stuck in my mind, and I've finally got around to recording it. Sadly, I can only sing it in my own voice! Ah well :)

Yeah, it works well, even without Eddie Vedder... I get exactly the same sort of problem- in the dream about my latest one, it was Taylor Swift singing - it took me quite a bit to get over the initial disappointment when I found that my own voice didn't have quite the same effect as the version I'd dreamt.

This one makes me really happy. Soothing and a little snappy. Guitar, bass, lyre, bongo, bodhran (brush), vocals. Lyrics: Life is a roller coaster Just turn on the toaster I know you're up and down Just make a happy sound Flying a dragon…

Yep, made me happy too. I LOVE the lyrics. I hit fave just for the coaster/toaster thing, made me smile... then the two lines that followed... superb

Thanks, David! Yeah I'm not Irish myself but I've always been a big fan of Celtic music. Been getting more into playing with those kinds of instruments lately.

A bodhran, wow. Doesn't say where you are from but that's an Irish or Celtic instrument. very soothing sounds.

I dreamed this song a while ago. Sort of a music circle in a pub. Lots of instruments and percussion and what not. I quite like it :) (Bass, lyre, bodhran, bongos, shaker, 2 mandolin tracks, multiple clap tracks)

Great "slap-back" feel.

Here's an instrumental folk Celtic sort of tune I made today. Guitar, bass, pennywhistle, mandolin, bodhran. Took about 4 hours to record all the parts properly. The result is a delightful minute and a half, I think!

Cool. I had to look up bodhran.

A cover of Great Big Sea's cover of Ron Angel's song. I love both versions. I used guitar, bodhran, vocals. Edit: reuploaded; fixed up the vocals a bit.

Love it when men sing these songs in unison. Well done.
