Songs and tunes from Mary Humphreys and Anahata on YouTube
« on: June 27, 2018, 10:38:19 PM »

We've got more than enough new material to record another album, but have been thinking it might be less trouble and we might reach a different audience by putting them on YouTube. (There might or might not also be a CD sometime.)

So here's a couple of songs with Mary singing and me playing my Hohner C/F Club. These are both quite new - we haven't been doing them for long and my melodeon accompaniments will probably get a bit more polished as time goes on, but Mary's singing might well be worth a watch and listen.

Cupid's Garden
Go and Leave Me

I'll follow up as we upload more videos, but to keep this relevant to the forum, I'll only post here if a melodeon is involved. There will be some with only other instruments, but you'll have to find them yourself.

Thanks, I enjoyed these, and I am always looking for good examples of accompanying singing on the melodeon. It's still very much a black art to me. (If only you were turned just another five degrees to the left so I could see what your treble hand is doing... ;D)

Sorry, I'll know to turn a bit more to the left next time  (:)

Go and Leave Me, obviously shares it's roots with this song which I learned form the singing of the Carter Family.

https://genius.com/The-carter-family-little-darling-pal-of-mine-lyrics

Now much of their stuff had irish and Scottish roots, so it's more likely Irish than East Anglian. Interesting how these things travel, and verses are borrowed, lent, and partially rewritten. Probably due to someone forgetting the original words, back in the oral tradition days.

It does indeed!
It has very much the flavour of a travellers' song, so it could be from anywhere.

When I said songs, I meant songs and tunes, of course.

So here's The Cuckoos Nest, in one of my favourite versions of the tune, from 19th century Yorkshire fiddler Lawrence Leadley.

Thanks for the encouraging comments.

As for "keeping them coming", I'm going into hospital tomorrow for a hernia repair. It's an afternoon-only appointment but I'm advised I may be somewhat out of action and uncomfortable for a while afterwards (no driving or anything physically demanding) so there won't be any more for at least a few days...

Excellent! I've had a couple of hernia repairs, both relatively painless. I hope yours is as straightforward and successful.

Best wishes for sppedy recovery

Get well soon. Meanwhile you might need to play your lightest instrument and not play it too energetically.
