Circleville by Robin Thompson - PlayMusicOnThePorchDay


musician/member name: Music
Duration: 00:02:14
description:
One of my all time favorite tunes from Mark & Robin Thompson, Circleville is Robin's hometown and she is every bit as sweet as the tune.

In the spirit of #PlayMusicOnThePorchDay, I am sending this tune to all and dedicating it to a couple of wonderful players on their porch in Ohio.

This is also the debut of the german scheitholt built for me by Jack Ferguson @Appalachian Flutes & Dulcimers. Another fine musician building instruments for the rest of us porch players.

Ariane:

Oh, that's brilliant, Dean! Fantastic playing, beautiful harmonies and a remarkably lovely instrument!

Thank you so much, Ariane. When you have an instrument as well-made as Jack's and a tune like Robin's Circleville, it's easy to please.

This is excellent! It is also my favorite of Robin & Mark's tunes.  You do a great job of respecting the original melody but also offering a unique interpretation.  Wonderful stuff all around!

Thanks so much, @dusty-turtle. @robin-thompson has such way with a phrase, doesn't she?

Dean, thanks for the credit. I love all my dulcimers, scheitholts, and music boxes. Building them is a joy. But, making them sing is what it's all about. And you really make them sing!

Thanks for Circleville, Robin and Mark. How do I get a PMOTP tee-shirt.

I forgot to thank @jack-ferguson for this beautiful instrument. It is a real treat to play this scheitholt and the teardrop dulcimer you made for me. hi5

Robin Thompson:

Oh, Dean, Mark & I are so honored you played Circleville!  

I LOVE this tune! I chubbed it in a couple of spots but I'll take a mulligan since I've only had the scheitholt for a couple of weeks - this tune will always be in my set list. It is such an "earworm" as Ariane calls it.

Ordered my nifty PlayMusicOnThePorch Tshirt so I'll be ready next year!

Oh, Dean, Mark & I are so honored you played Circleville!  It just took one of you to do what it takes two of us to do-- marvelous!  We love everything about what you did with the tune and thank you for playing it!

@robin-thompson - Thanks for the introduction to PlayMusicOnThePorchDay! When you posted your video I realized I had never posted a video for Circleville so I thought this was the perfect day and instrument for it!
