The Castle of Gold

Oct 9, 2013

Description:

This is a track from the new CD 'Band of Two' by Banna de dhá, the duo of fiddler Tom Morley and DADGAD guitarist Hazel Ketchum. The Irish phrase (pronounced 'bonna de gaw') makes reference to the 'banding together' of their two instruments, fiddle & guitar. This tune is usually played as a hornpipe but here the duo give it a moody interpretation.

Update: Oct 29/12: Downloading is now available for this tune. Thanks for listening.<br><br> I been composing tunes in the last couple of weeks, and a couple in Ireland have been helping out in recording them. They are called Dulahan Ireland. We are "friends" online through TradConnect.com. <br>Their ability to play so well a new tune astounds me at the least.. I have not tried these tunes at this pace, about 160BPM in 12/8 time which is the dotted 1/4 note gets the beat. <br>The tunes are slides, and I have one more coming which is Carpenter Bill which is a double jig in 6/8. <br>I have not allowed downloading at this time until I get permission from them to do so. It's my song yes, but it is their performance. So keep checking. <br>Comments on the structure of the tune is welcomed. I don't think you will have a problem with their performances.<br> Enjoy: AJ

Description:

This is a repost of the same viola/mandolin recording I've had posted since Sept. 2009 but which appears to have become inaccessible somewhere along the line; I'm not sure when. Hopefully, this one can actually be listened to. <br> ======================================<br> I find this melody haunting; one of those tunes that I just can't get out of my mind. This is my arrangement played on my newest toy, a viola (not strictly a fiddle, I guess, but kinda like one; notwithstanding that it feels a little like holding an orange crate under my chin) combined with mandolin and a couple of guitar tracks.
