 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.

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.
Robin Clark
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?

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/B0000002LUI 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!

06/01/10 04:34:09AM @nick-osullivan:
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.
Robin Thompson

Randy,Here's a banjo version with Adam Hurt:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqnuMIp-lqk&feature=PlayList&p=CA808CBE5014288C&playnext_from=PL&playnext=1&index=3I've got it on Tom, Brad, and Alice's cd Carve that Possum. Their version is really nice.

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.
John Henry

Heck Randy, if I can sing on paltalk you surely can here, I enjoyed it!Regards, JohnH
