Since Oct 8, 1999
My job supports my art habit. I dabble in calligraphy and manuscript illumination...here are samples of my work:
Charlie Zahm - Minstrel Boy: Charlie Zahm is perhaps better known as a Celtic/Gaelic folk singer, but also performs a lot of historical American martial music. His voice is on display here in its fullest glory, and does justice to an equally dignified song of old.
Ennio Morricone - On Earth as it is in Heaven: The only word in the English language that comes close to describing this performance is, "Celestial." The near two minutes of solid applause at the end speaks for itself.
Rushlow Harris - Bagpipes Cryin': If you don't love this performance, you have no business on Free Republic.
Shane McGowan/Sinead O'Connor - Haunted: Song originaly performed by the Pogues (McGowan's old group) for the Sid and Nancy soundtrack. The steel guitar is sweet, and this duet is perhaps the best synthesis of delicate, polished femininity and a somewhat coarse, rugged masculinity.
Pogues - Rainy Night In Soho: One of the Pogues' definitive classics. Although the term, "Irish Folk Punk Band" may sound awkward, they bring it all together here. A magnificent little tune.
Additional tune links I enjoy...
Stay tuned, and check back for more links; I'm always adding new ones...Right now, though, I'm going to get me a sandwich.
Well....you checked out my profile for some reason....most likely it WAS something I said...instead of just looking, why not post a reply or shoot me a FReemail? Lemme know what's on your mind, eh?
