Hi guys, absolutely love your sound. Like many others it seems, I came across you via the Blackest Crow video...just beautiful. I've been trying to work out Michael's harmony so that my partner and I can sing it, but can't quite get it down... I'd be really grateful if you could give me a clue as to his line? If you ever find yourselves in the UK, we will definitely be there. Thank you!
Sorry to be getting to this question a *little* after the fact. By now, no doubt, you've developed your own excellent version of "The Blackest Crow" and you have no need for this belated response. But, on the off chance that this might help others, my harmony on TBC is all about singing the third below Laurel's melody line. Pretty much at every chance, I'll sing the third of the chord that's being playing, albeit in a fairly parallel fashion. Hope that helps!
Hi! I can't tell you how impressed I am with the both of you. Your version of the blackest crow has brought tears to my eyes on more than one occasion. Thank you so much for the music you share with the world.
As a claw hammer player I find myself watching your version of pretty polly often on repeat. I was hoping you could share the banjo tuning for that song. It seems like it should be double c but when I try to play, it comes out all wrong.
All the best. Alex
And although I live in Lakewood (suburb of Denver) Colorado,
I also pass on info. and upcoming concerts to family/friends around the country. And in Denver, Swallow Hill Music Association
is a ideal place for concerts for your type of music.
p.s. I discovered your music today (Sun. July 2, 2017) on
Fort Collins, Co. public radio KRFC-FM and their folk show.
Where I have discovered much good music.
Ahh... public radio - what would we do without it.
Thanks again. Larry Cunningham.
Also their Celtic show on Sunday is another good source of music.
