My planned book is now a blog instead. More flexible, editable, expandable. I’m happy.
I played concertina on Urge for Going in this new recording of songs
from Canadian songwriters by exquisite California singer Kate Price.
Instrumental versions of Sea Songs and Chanteys
This unique album was recorded 15 years ago by Neil Young in Canyon and recently re-mastered by Toby Seeger in Davis. Nauticas is Peter Kasin on fiddle, Riggy Rackin ~ concertina, Shay Black ~ guitar and keyboard, and Dick Holdstock on mandolin and bouzouki.
Here’s our rich sound sample :

Duet with David Grisman on Stan Wells’ HELLO on his CD HIGH TIDE
A vibrant musical niche that few concert-goers or even musicians are aware of thrives across the globe: a dozen or so folks meeting in living rooms, quiet pubs, ship’s holds, or church basements, to sing together in sweet, intuitive harmony. It may be hymns, or drinking songs, or chanteys, but the essential element is the delicious pleasure of a song that is well sung by a group of friends. It was an honor for us to be able to sing folk spirituals and gospel songs in the acoustically phenomenal chapel at Bishops Ranch in Healdsburg, CA, where this recording was made. We hope you will enjoy Ain’t Got Long, and sing right along with us! See what they are saying about it…
