Mountain Stage Jigs
This is a live cut from an NPR radio broadcast back in 1988 while my Irish Trad group Scartaglen was on one of its first east coast tours. Found recently on a cassette tape. Musically this was one of my favorite periods in the history of the band as we had the manpower to pull off more complex arrangements of the tunes
Wow...Been checking out more of your work. This is gorgeous!!!!! Love this.
Just got in the office doing some filing so any excuse to have a listen! Oh, by the way, Mum met an Irish guy in Wales and they started talking, anyway he knew that song I asked you about and sang it to her.I thought his proposal of marriage was a bit rash but .... hey! Cheers Bee
Very nice. Great flow
missed these somehow. great stuff!
Fantastic. Could listen to this all day.
beautiful playing and overall sound, incredible arrangement!
such rich sounds. a pleasure to hear this.
Wow, great, I've heard stuff like this before but it's usually by Irish folk, and it's really cool, love it.
Man this hits home. I love this. So awesome! Thanks for posting this!
What a great way to start catching up on my listening backlog! Really enjoyed listening to this.
Hey, I even clapped at the end. Just couldn't help myself. Wonderful suite. The minor keyed opening had me smiling with a tear in my eye. Hugely enjoyed this. Glad you scrounged it up. Sounds good and feels good.
Hi Kirk, typically it is easiest to start talking about notes as numbers in the tuning. So say for instance a a fifth would be from note 1 (or 0) to note 12 (11). This page may help http://xenharmonic.wikispaces.com/19edo
I stopped back for a second listen. It's even better this time. You have a lot going on in the song, and it's all going in the same direction. You really know how to build a song!
WOW ... this is really wonderful !! Excellent performance and production!
Wow NPR - how cool!! And the music is great!!
ToOk three shots o whiskey with my wife to celebrate a great day. Jammed this track the whole time. Thanks. :)
Loved it! Whew!
Amazed both by the quality of the song and the quality of the cassette :-)
Irish jigs...always my favorites! w;-)
What is a cassette tape? :)
Damn that gets my blood moving. real good.
This so rocks! Must be from a few years before I met you.
This is excellent ... wow. What a great arrangement and fantastic, powerful playing. I love the entrance of different instruments along the way and the use of low, sustained drone notes. Most of all, though, I like the "soul" and liveliness of the piece. I would have loved to hear your group live!
I may try and have a jamalong to this on my recently acquired Ackordeen...have a feeling I will get my fingers burned....or probably trapped ....Great stuff Jarvo
Nice music, and I really like the way you started out .
Gone foot-tappin crazy here. See you for a ceilidh in March!
Lovely, fresh and frisky! Right up my lane! Well played all!
Thanks for sharing this one my friend. Great track.
Great stuff, I bet that was fun. About the time I started getting into the "new" Celtic stuff.
Kirk This Lovely and Lively
Ooh!!!! What a find! A wonderfully uplifting, breezy piece! Happy New Year, Sir FS. (Interesting shades of Rocky Road To Dublin.)
