Randy, I read your note to the guitar player in the house-- Markie & I are both tickled you like the record!  Your music and approach to music have influenced me lots and we're honored you played Quittin' Time and let us use it.  Hugs! 


Kevin Messenger

Thanks randy.

 Randy ,I tried to send a PM ,but, you are not following me so I couldn't .  You have been putting up some real good stuff lately ,and I was wondering if I could put a couple on my website. Thanks Kevin.  Keep putting out the good music.


Robin Thompson
10/30/12 05:47:36AM @robin-thompson:

Thanks again, Randy, for the comment about Quittin' Time at Essex Mine. Mark's guitar really makes the tune-- he's so good at putting together accompaniment! And I can blame you for keeping this 3 time thing alive in my head. lol


Karen Keane
06/27/12 10:51:35AM @karen-keane:

You got that right. I wish you lived a little closer so we could have the time to jam and learn a bunch of new stuff from you. You are an awesome player and it's my honor to know ya!!!!Grin.gif

Randy, those recordings with Aunt Jo are wonderful! What a sweet swing she had in her playing. The joy you both found in the music comes through beautifully. Cheers, John.

07/19/10 04:09:16AM @robin-clark:
Hi Randy,Are those wonderful recording of you and Aunt Jo posted in a Forum or Group thead somewhere here on FOTMD. I'd love to read the story behind them.
Robin Thompson
07/18/10 10:16:33AM @robin-thompson:
That's something that you only met once and got to share music. How good it is you've got the recordings! I love the music.
Robin Thompson
07/17/10 10:31:29AM @robin-thompson:
Randy, those tunes with your Aunt Jo are priceless! I flat love 'em! Is your Aunt Jo still living? What influence did she (or other family members) have on your music?
Robin Thompson
07/06/10 08:48:32PM @robin-thompson:
Here's a link, Randy, to the cd we learned "Only Remembered" off of: http://www.amazon.com/Third-Annual-Farewell-Reunion-Seeger/dp/B0000002LU I checked and even though the cd is unavailable, the sound sample for the song plays.
Robin Thompson
07/06/10 08:31:21PM @robin-thompson:
Randy, I appreciate your comments about "Only Remembered". Mark said he'd like to cut in some guitar (lead) on the break-- and it needs it for when I hop on harmony-- but he wasn't doing it this afternoon, so I uploaded the song anyway.Though any vocals from me always need work, I'm having all kinds of fun with this lap fiddle. Might even get good at it someday!

Hi Randy,Glad you liked them. The first tunes is actually Norwegian (though it sounds very Irish) and the one in the middle is Flemish.Nick
Robin Thompson
05/30/10 09:09:39PM @robin-thompson:
I appreciate the comment about Soldier's Joy, Randy. I purposely slowed the tune so I could use the fat felt pick to play it to get that "flat-footing" sound. It didn't turn out too bad.

That was a really nice thing to say about my over-sized fiddle, Randy. I deleted the tune just a bit ago here on FOTMD because I'm not satisfied with how "Goin' to Boston" came out. Been working on trying to record it again for my ezFolk page so I can replace what I've got there with, I hope, something better. Though bowing is not easy, it sure is fun!

Randy's singing of Peg 'n' Awl was sung as a lament. Moving. And as pertinent today as ever.Think it over, putting it back up, I mean. You really sang it so fine, Randy.
