If you are not on the list, it's not because I have not seen your site (as I have seen each one and think greatly of your music genre), I am first most Celtic in my music tradition and those on the list best represent the Traditional Folk Music representation of this genre.
I usually reserve my Pan Flute for my own enjoyment, but then I heard some Scottish tunes being played and thought why not. So here we are with a recording done just a few days ago (July 16/13). Hope you enjoy
As one would notice all of my tunes (especially 1 thru 5 composed by me) are instrumental. The Sisters Bissonnette Set are 2 Slip Jigs I wrote back in the summer of 2012. the first tune in entitled Marilyn's 'Slip' in honour of my wife, and the second is Nancy's Dance in honour of my sister in-law. Hope you enjoy these tunes and feel free to download them.
The lead instrument is a homemade "whistle", more of a cross between an Irish Whistle and recorder made out of maple.
Have a great day; AJ
During July and August 2013 you can find me doing something I have not done in 40 yrs. - Busking!
You can find me either in Marina Park by the skating area, or on Red River Road by Scotia Bank. Hope to see you there.
Pierre will be hosting as part of the Celtic Festival a Celtic music session to include locals on fiddle, guitar, banjo, mandolin, harp, flute, whistle, accordion and more. This is a comfortable environment to learn more Irish, Scottish and other Traditional tunes. Folks are welcome to listen in as well! Where: Gargoyles Grille & Ale - Little to the Left room When: Saturday June 22, 2013 @ 8:30pm Bring your instrument with you like: fiddle, mandolin, banjo, harp, bodhran, and so on.
There are 4 tunes posted at the moment, more of course will follow.
The four tunes were composed in the summer of 2012: Bill the Carpenter - in honour of my father in law who has shown me much in the way of woodworking and carving over the last 30 yrs. Wildfred of Cochrane - in honour of my dad who was born in Cochrane Ontario. This tune depicts more of a military tone to it representing his years in the Canadian Armed Forces. Brothers Two - in honour of my siblings who are paternal twins. Albert's Slide - could not resist naming a tune with my name which depicts the love I have for Celtic music.
All the above slides and jigs are composed in the traditional manner of Irish composing.
Hope you enjoy, and please feel free in downloading them.
