i'll buy me a tally-feather double dose of dilly dally

hey all,
oum and i are two tired looking kids, drowning under too much of everything. I guess it's better than too little but it means we haven't been able to keep up with our internet activities. On top of that because of a basketball game, free form break, tornado, and baseball game we haven't done our radio show in a month! Needless to say I'm am pleased to take a breather from life to do some blogging. We wanted to do one of those "list" posts made famous by squashed. So I suggested a traditional fiddle dance music list to be difficult and oum didn't really stick to that topic...which is her own way of being difficult cos she has the knowledge to make a way better list than me. anyways, good music.

    You two never cease to amuse me.
    I was currently looking exhaustingly for interesting music so you can't imagine how glad I feel listening to this list of songs. Thank you.

    I'm so glad to hear you back, you don't have to necessarily do lists in here you know :).

    Beautiful! Maybe some of those fiddle dances by Bela Bartok would fit too... :D

    Is there any meaning behind the "m" in the doodle?

    I'm so excited! I have 4 of the 5 albums in Oum's list!!!
    I'm sorry but it's so weird to find artists like nautical almanac or loutbaten boiourgtslooun mentioned on other's people choices of any kind. So glad to find another fan of their stuff.

    !!! I'm amazed!!! please post more often I love the music you share with us. Nice list too crish :) you made my day thank you very much.

    Meatfly, BELA BARTOK! crish says he was a folk music researcher but i thought he was classical, where should i LOOK? and the "M" is for "Mercury" i was drawing Space Cowboys.

    Pratisha, thanks and ya'welcome, our music genes must share a link.

    peace and love internet nerds,

    yes, crish is right this time. bartok was primarly known as a folk music researcher in Hungaria. You could try listening to "the bartok album" by Muzsikas, it's relatively easy to get and it features Marta Sebestyen and classical violinist Alexander Balanescu. Most of the songs in the record are hungarian gypsy fiddle songs recovered by Bartok and it features some 4 songs composed by him too.

    Thanks! I had been searching for that Mainer version of Cindy, and it led me to your page. Great stuff! Let me suggest a couple of fiddle classics if you want to resume in this vein sometime: 1) Sally Goodin, played by Eck Robertson, available on quite a few LPs and CDs. A great tour-de-force from the 1920s. 2) Either or both of Fine Tmes At Our House or Rye Straw, played by John W. Summers, available on a Folkways LP called "Fine Times At Our House", Indiana recordings from 1960s.
