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…

Here's a pretty decent draft of a fingerpicking tune I've been working on for a while now. For me it calls to mind flying low over tall grass, like a bird swooping down in a large arc for the pure joy of it.

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!

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…

Always loved this song. Just playing that D to G is almost a meditation. One track, singing and plucking, recorded on the phone. I'm mostly following the Wallflowers' version of the lyrics here.

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

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.

Not sure what I can say about things. But here's a try. One track, recorded on my phone, good enough for now. Lyrics: The sun came up, the other day It came up in a red sky The bombs were falling, people calling They look up and they…

A 3-part series for relaxation, meditation, or yoga. Harp, bass, bongos, and a brushed bodhran processed to sound like ocean waves.

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…

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 :)

Talking to the cat during a recording session! I don't really know what this was going to be at first, but I like what it turned into...

Messing around, playing a classic. Recorded on my phone. Lots of fun! (Merle Travis, Tennesse Ernie Ford, Johnny Cash all did popular versions; probably a million others have played it at some point.)

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.

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!
