2014.03: Kitty’s Wedding

This week, I FINALLY got around to learning the hornpipe Kitty’s Wedding. Seriously, this has been on my “need to learn” list for at least four or five years. At our local Monday night session, we usually play it with The Home Ruler, which was the very first tune I did when I started this project last year.

Also, in case you’re wondering why I’m playing what appears to be spare plumbing supplies, my good flute’s in the shop with a torn cork. I’m playing my Doug Tipple PVC flute this week. It’s not fancy, but it works well enough.

Next week’s tune will be a tune that my husband and I heard (and I recorded at a session) during our trip to Montreal last October. It’s a jig called The Atholl Highlanders.

2014.02: The Ivory Bowl

This week’s tune is the second part of the set I learned from Kevin Crawford a few months ago. My recording of the first tune in the set can be foundĀ here.

Enough blah blah blah. Here’s The Ivory Bowl.

2014.01: The Ivory Flute

Happy New Year, folks. Well, 2013 was a bust as far as this project goes, but I’m gonna try it again this year! Honestly, I’ll be happy if I can beat last year’s number. It shouldn’t be too hard. Ha!

So the first tune of 2014 is a jig called The Ivory Flute. I learned it at a workshop led by Kevin Crawford (who is awesome – go visit his site) a couple of months ago. It’s pretty much been “my jam” since then.
