Title: Session recordings from the English Country Music Weekend.
Post by: Andrew Wigglesworth on October 12, 2008, 08:51:16 AM
Recordings from the 2007 and 2008 sessions at the English Country Music week.

See;

http://www.mustrad.org.uk/ecmw.htm

for more info about the English Country Music weekend. There's a link on that page to the CovTrad website where the recordings are hosted, or you could just go straight there;

There's loads of Melodeon (and other instruments) and it's a great inspiration for learning new tunes, unless you already know them all of course.

I'm obviously being very stupid and doing something wrong, but I can't see any button on the page that loads after clicking on a tune to allow me to hear it.  I seem to be going round in circles.  Shame, because it's a great resource.

Heh, things are always obvious if it's your own site, don't worry :-)

Which page are you clicking on?

If you wanted to preview the individual tracks of the 2007 session for example (ogg-vorbis version), you'd end up on this page;

http://www.covtrad.org.uk/Music/English-Country-Music-Weekend-recordings/English-country-music-weekend-2007/Ogg-Vorbis-encoded-individual-files

The link for the first track would be;

Similarly for the mp3 files at;

http://www.covtrad.org.uk/Music/English-Country-Music-Weekend-recordings/English-country-music-weekend-2007/MP3-encoded-individual-files

It is;

Thanks for your help, Andrew.  I've now done what I was supposed to do in the first place.  Sorry for the panic!  ::)

Many thanks to the people who put these recordings on the web! They're really handy for those of us who'll probably never get there in person.

Thanks, I'll pass that on to Jack, the guy who actually did the recording/editing  :-)
