Urra Moor/The Leckie/Reel CJ/Willafjord


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
A set of four tunes performed by Relig Oran: Urra Moor by Andy Renshaw; The Leckie and Reel CJ by myself and Willafjord, a traditional tune which may be either Norwegian or Shetland Islands in origin.

Urra Moor and The Leckie are about places that are special to Andy and me respectively. The Reel CJ is an extension of a phrase I used in my first ever MacJams collaboration (with CJ Hoose ) entitled The Dance of the Jealous Pagan .

Musicians:

Andy Renshaw - Kalimba & Bodhran
Jem Scott - Bousouki
Me - fiddle

Love the haunting violin at the start. Nice arrangement featuring some very interesting and unique sounds. The kalimba is a very nice touch. Great performances by all. Nice selection of tunes. Great dynamic and tempo differences keeping it fresh and interesting throughout!

Have the windows and doors open and letting this play through the house like a nice spring breeze. This is perfect!

You've got me worried
is the description really that off-putting? Glad you persevered!

Very Nice......
A reel that in the slower parts has some Oriental scales for flavour...
Or very similar in tone, it truly gives it a very distinctive sound.....
Well done.....

Agree
I get that Oriental vibe too in the first tune - thanks for listening.

Sounds great, Martyn....
Dug out the best headphones this afternoon, and this sounds perfect over them...Nicely simple stereo spread....I think you captured each instrument's sound with clarity and body...The tunes themselves are great listens, and I'm gratefully downloading them in the direction of the iPods...

great pacing from beginning to end
What an unusual combination - fiddle and Kalimba - beautiful! Your fiddle sounds particularly nice on this track, the solo is a nice touch.
And then comes the drum! Great post. On so many levels.

Fiddle and Kalimba
I like that combination as well - Andy also does some very clever stuff on the Bodhran (drum) but it's difficult to record effectively.

Thank you!
I just use a normal bow but perhaps I should try a deep bow for added oomph :)

Nice!
Love the sound of your acoustic violin!
Wonder performance here.
Bravo!

On the last tune, was the melody vaguely reminiscent of "Raggle Taggle Gypsie"?

Better put those strings on ice, cause they are smokin' by the end. ;)

Enjoy
the industrial feel to the acoustic guitar, plus the fiddle sound fits right in with it. Nice celtic feel indeed. Enjoy the bell sounds as well, kind of a chinese feel to it as well. Nice folk feel indeed. Riverdance with other influence. Again, like that guitar with it's terrific industrial open tuning feel. Nice fiddle!!!

Thanks Bill
I like that guitar sound too - one of these days I'm going to teach myself open tuning...

I'm a folky who also happens to have strong predilections for dance music that also stimulates the mind muscle and the experimental noisy stuff which went on at the margins of punk during the late 70s and early 80s. I've played in punk ban... [see more]
