Aunt Mary’s Hornpipe

The Fiddler learned a new tune after work yesterday (Aunt Mary’s Hornpipe) and we recorded a Fiddle & Pump Organ duet with the “Relic” aka Crown.  Follow the link below to give it a listen. If you listen closely you can hear the pedaling. One interesting discovery (and one thing that is easy to fix, but we just haven’t yet) is that one of the pedal straps (canvas/burlap) was replaced with an old leather belt. Therefore the pedal on that side is particularly noisy!

I wasn’t able to link only to Aunt Mary’s Hornpipe, but it is the first tune in the list of the Fiddler’s tunes (after a while, you’ll have to scroll down  for this tune.. with SoundCloud the latest tune appears first in list). There will be other fiddle/pump organ duets in the list and they were recorded using my mother’s pump organ. Also appearing in the line-up -- a couple of fiddle-piano duets by us. If you keep listening, you’ll hear some front porch tunes, square dance tunes, jam session bits, and much more from the Fiddler and his friends.. Hope you enjoy!

The link above also now appears as a widget in the sidebar. Happy Labor Day Weekend.. be safe!

So are you the organist. If so, both of you are very talented. I can hear the organ.. Wow, what a great time you must have playing music together. I love it! Blessings!

As the owner of one of his CD's, I can testify to his talent. I'm looking forward to adding to my collection. My husband commented on the great talent recently when he came through and heard it playing. He likes that CD too.

Wow Tammy, you guys sound fantastic together! I had to listen VERY closely to hear the pedal, it was really faint in that recording. I didn't know you played the piano/organ either - I grew up playing the piano, wonder if I could still play, LOL. I imagine it comes back to you, kind of like riding a bike.

I listened to a few other songs there - love the fiddle music, it just makes you want to move, doesn't it?! :-)

I would love to hear it but looks like I have a sound blocker - - tried to do a filter exception but it did not work - - - will play with it some more when I have more time.
