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!
