Do You Love an Apple?


musician/member name: Music
Duration: 00:02:23
description:
aka "Still I Love Him" sung with lap dulcimer. Do You Love an Apple? An Irish traditional song, probably from around the 1880s. Not real PC...she's treated badly, but stays with him. A reflection of the times possibly, as many folk songs are. Many verses out there, I chose the least objectionable. Has a beer hall feel to it. I bumped up the tuning to D#-A#-D# so I could better sing it. Chords are G C D...that's all. (I have a 1+ fret for the C chord)

Thanks for listening and commenting.  I have to say, I learn so much from the FOTMD membership.  These comments led me to learn about the group Trapezoid and listen to a sampler of songs from their Moon Run album.  Enjoyed them, and uniqueness of what was initially, an all-HD band...and sad ending. Wasn't familiar with the music of the Bothy Band (had heard the name) and now know I really like them...didn't know what a clavinet was....now I do :-) Bothy Band "research" led to more information on the Battle of Aughrim..always enjoy a trek down historic roads.  Thank you all.

Janene - you did a great job on this!  And your dulcimer is beautiful!

I always love your singing and playing, Janene. Thanks so much.

I think I first heard this tune on an old album by the hammered dulcimer band Trapezoid.

Had never heard the Bothy Band.  Name kept coming up while I researched this song, so just found them on YouTube, and really enjoyed them.  Listened to several tunes.

This makes we want to listen to my Bothy Band CD, a great Irish Trad group from the 1970s that did a version of this song.  Thanks for posting your version.  This is the first time I've heard it accompanied by the mountain dulcimer.

Yes, I absolutely love the Bothy Band too! I like Janene's version of this song better than theirs though. To me it just sounds nicer on mountain dulcimer than on clavinet.
