March Music

now out of date publicity pic of WhapweaselVery quickly because I'm running out of time before Easter. I bought Pack of Jokers and Relentless by everybody's favourite ceilidh band Whapweasel. The band is now full of boxes, and I can't wait to see them again this summer. I also bought their songbook, and have had a go at The Final Last Banana at about 20% of its proper speed.

I was much sturdier this year in practicing for the workshops I was doing but not listening to the whole CD, so I have some catching up to do. Once again I made it some album art -- this time with a picture of a Serenellini Selli just like mine. There was one other person at MaM with a Selli, though I didn't get a chance to talk to her.

I quickly blogged "Dylan Hears a Who" when it appeared. Unsurprisingly, copyright holders fell on it from a great height. But it is very fine.

More fabulous Topic and Fellside back catalogue from eMusic -- "The Sweet Primroses" by Shirley Collins, "Half a Fruit Pie" by Benji Kirkpatrick, and Voice of the People vol. 3.

Finally, "Hampshire Dance Tunes" from the Pyle family manuscript 1822, recorded by all sorts of people, including Paul Sartin and Saul Rose, who are 2/3 of Faustus who we saw the other day. Just sneaked in there before the end of the month.
