Subject: Welcome to new member please
From: Balsto da Loteya
Date: 01 Apr 07 - 05:41 AM

Hello everybody I am joining you here because I am very interested in the folk music. I am from Portugal, the seaside town of Viana do Castelo.This is in north, just by the border with Galicia which is famous for its Celtic music. There is some old music here in Portugal too, the old fisherman sailed acroos the Atlantic into the sea by Canada and came back with a load of cod and then they would sing in the bars by the harbour. I do not like the old cod music so much, my parents did, but I think the Celtic is more fun for we younger ones. I go the pub called Dirty Gertie's, also it near the harbopur, where some German and Dutch people play the celtic music, and I like that, I am learning to play bodhran and bones and they let me join in. I have bought a whistle to play tunes but so far I am not playing well.
   If anybody has advice for me, or just has wish to say hello, that would be very good
Thank you
Balsto

Hello, Balsto, and welcome. Being Greek myself, I have great interest in southern European music - though I have to say that I find fado sometimes too hard.

I see you are only 200km or so from Asturias across the border - my favourite group of the area have been Felpeyu, at least until the tragic death of Igor Medio and Carlos Redondo last summer. Do you know of them and their music? And do you perhaps know if the group intend to continue after their loss?

Anyway - good luck with learning whistle, bones and bodhran, and have fun with the music.

Hi Balsto
I also like folking in my country. We sometimes do folk with just two people but I prefer a good session with a large group, then you don't know the person whose instrument you are playing with, it's much exciting.
Our pub session allows folk in the front but it has another room around the back so we sometimes we take it up the rear. It's a tight fit but we manage to fit in.
I would be interested to hear of other country's folking traditions.
I'm waiting for you to get in touch on my folking website and you can see pictures of my instrument and the fingering system I use to bring pleasure to many.
Jenny

Hi balsto welcome to the friendliest most helpful bunch of nutter you could wish for

before anyone gets into the Bodhran jokes let me start seriously.

Any percussion player from Timpani to shaky egg has to have a sense of timing and rythm. When you get into the feel of a tune you can somehow sense the change of tempo before it happens.
Don't try and jon in at the start of every tune. listen for a few bars and get the feel, click or tip at the first beat of a few bars then go for it!!
This has the advantages of letting you make sure the tune is not too fast to join in with cofortably and also shows the other musicians respect because you are listening and learning and not just showing off.

Oh and I hiope you have a set of good, real bone, bones they make all the difference.

Good luck,

Andy (Bones, Tea chest bass, Concertina, Voice, but mostly Fool)

Hi George and Giok
I am not understanding the British humouring. Do you doubt my folking credentials? I have been playing the oboe (it's my own special pink one) for as long as I can memorise and have been told that my lip technique is unique.
I have held many positions for the National Folking Magazine and worked my way from the bottom to being on top of this great organ. I have my own large column which is used by anyone who feels the need.
I have always had it hard - when I have sometimes found myself on my knees I always rise to the occasion and work my way up any available passage.
These are my folking credentials what are yours?
Jenny

Anyway, Balsto, welcome to the Mudcat from Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. If you are really real, be aware that April 1st is the day for practical jokes in the British/Irish/American tradition, so many of the posts above refer to that. If you aren't real...welcome anyway. Lots of Mudcat people are a bit unreal.

My friend Peace, I thank you for your greeting. It is good to hear from someone who knows our fine town. Some of the letters here I think are perhaps the English sense of humour, or people are American, I don't know. But you seem to be a friendly person.
The weather is lovely today, it is very warm and not windy, and I walked down by the harbour this morning, had a box of smoked salty cod pieces from the woman with a little fire in her fishy box, and then went into Dirty Gertie's to hear the Celtic music. (I sit here now with my little laptop)

Balsto-

Welcome!

I for one would love to hear one of your smoked salty cod piece songs, either in the original or in translation. It is my understanding that the tunes are traditionally rendered in the diabolic scale, depending on the size of the catch.

I'm less interested in the Celtics, given their abysmal record this year even in their home games in Boston.

Cheerily,
Your friend for life Charley Noble
