    Les Poules Huppées "Crested Hens" + Far Away ~ Waltz

    Here are two really pretty tunes: A French tune called Les Poules Huppées / Crested Hens (written by Gilles Chabenat), and an American waltz called “Far Away” (written by Pete Jung). Both of these tunes seem to pop up a lot in sessions near where I live, so I thought I’d play them together! =) I’ve heard Les Poules Huppées , or “Crested Hens” in English, played all sorts of different ways – from upbeat and fast jig-like tune, to a slow waltz. I thought I’d try a slow version for this video. Initially I was going to play it like a slow jig, but once I got to work composing the backing track, the waltz vibe took over. ^_^ There’s something about the D# that pops in the B part that sounds so cool as a waltz! The waltz timing also helped blend the tune with Far Away. Far Away is a really pretty waltz. It starts off very minor and dark. Then it becomes a little bit major for the B part, only to turn minor again. It is a really pretty and flowing tune. It makes me think of “leaving something behind” that you may or may not be able to see again. It also sort of makes me think of driving down a long winding road. At first, I wanted to wait until summer was in full swing to film this (the weeping willow footage was from last summer…), but once I saw how melancholy the setting looked with the green grass but barren tree branches, I thought it fit the minor key of the tunes much better than flowers and pretty green trees could. My family used to have chickens, so I added a clip of them pecking at the grass in the backyard of one of the houses I grew up in. The first song is named after chickens, so I thought it would be a good video to put a little memory of them in. ^_^ The chickens have long since passed, and I miss them. We never ate the chickens – we considered them as little pets that laid fresh eggs (we did eat the eggs...). I used to spend a rather large amount of time with them when I could. They had big personalities for such little chickens, and the “pecking order” is a real thing! They were always pecking at each other and reminding themselves about who was the boss… They also often tried to peck at my toes if I painted my toenails a red or pink color. I think the chickens thought the painted toenails were berries. lol! Now I’m reminiscing about the chickens who took up only a few seconds of the video…this is becoming a really random video description. :o I hope I spelled the French title right! I definitely don’t know how to speak French, so I’m hoping Google and Google Translate spelled it right for me. =S Thank you for watching, and I hope you have a good rest of the week! =) ~ Katy ------------ Software and equipment used: Software used (for Macintosh): Garageband for attempted sound mixing Final Cut Pro for video editing PicMonkey.com for the ending cards Plugins for sound effects (I have A LOT to learn in this department!): East West plugins – Goliath Virtual Instrument, Stormdrum II Best Service Forest Kingdom II by Eduardo Tarilonte (See: bestservice.de) Camera: Canon 70D The Chicken clip was filmed by my parents, but I'm not sure what camera they used at the time.

    This is a nice tune I picked up at the local session. I heard it played on the fiddle and was great - I don't come close to that here, but hopefully next time they play it I'll be able to add a bit to things. :-) This tune has some very odd notes, particularly in the B section wherein there is some half holing (its not an Irish tune, so I expect thats why)

I think this version worked out the best out of all of my attempts, so I hope you like it! Whenever I end up at a new Celtic jam session, and people want me to start playing something, I usually pick this tune! It seems like it's one that everyone knows, at least around where I live! I've been so rushed with work and everything has been so crazy this past week. I hope things settle down a bit so I can relax~! Thank you for watching!

    Duration: 2:19 - FileType: mp3 - Bitrate: 192 Kbps


    The Banks of Spey -- Scottish Fiddle Tune!

    Here is a tune called "The Banks of Spey." It was written by William Marshall, and is a strathspey. Usually, I've heard this tune played very slowly (most strathspeys are played pretty slowly..), which gives it a bit of an eerie melancholy feeling. I've never been to the River Spey, but since I'm a bit of a happy goofball, I thought I'd try to perk it up a little and play it a tad faster than normal.. It really gives the tune a completely different feel! It's kind of strange... Hopefully I haven't ruined it for anyone! In Colorado, we usually have lots of rapids on our rivers, so I was imagining a similar river..... .... This is such a cool tune! It sounds "very Scottish" to me. I have only heard a few other versions of this tune, and it doesn't seem to be played very often where I live.. I wonder how popular it is among jam sessions in Scotland, and how they usually play it..?? If you have any suggestions of other versions of this tune that I could listen to, please let me know! I'd love to hear how other people play it! =) The traffic got so noisy!! It was a little hard to film... I hope you like this version!

    Daniel Mantey - 'The Crested Hen' - Olwell flute, Norman's R&R copy!

    'Les Poules Huppees' ('The Crested Hen) - Giles Chabenat, 1983. Performed by Daniel Mantey, Music All Sorts; classical flute. This is SUCH a beautiful dance! It is a dance; a waltz in fact. First heard it here on YouTube, and just fell in love with it. BUT, when I found out it was a waltz, I felt that perhaps most of the performance of this are just too slow? It certainly has a melancholy feel, but a waltz is a waltz. So I take it a tad faster than most, and aim for a dreamy (still melancholy) dance tempo. Giles Chabenat might have originally written this for hurdy-gurdy(?) however I have chosen to use this very beautiful flute. AND, the flute: this is Patrick Olwell's first copy of Chris Norman's 1836 Rudall & Rose Classical flute!!! Patrick had the original on hand when he made this, and I was lucky enough to have contacted him JUST as he was finishing this (before he sent the original back to Chris) and before anyone else had grabbed it! The original (do check out Chris Norman's 'The Man with the Wooden Flute' and 'Beauty's of the North,' etc...this is a hands-on copy of THAT flute!!!) is an eight-key flute, so here simplified into a key-less version, but otherwise the same. Patrick had wanted to finish one while both were together, so as to make sure they were as identical as possible (he had played them both for me over the phone asking 'which one is this....now, which one is this...). Unfortunately for me, however, I just cannot play it very well, as this flute has a Classical sized emboucher hole. I suffer chronic fatigue, and sometime asthma, and just cannot fill this thing up like I wish I could. I am very comfortable playing the MUCH smaller-holed Baroque flutes, and that is where I will reside. This doesn't sound so bad after all, but took me a full week of many goes, and just wore me out each time. I used to use this gem as my concert 'Irish' flute, and would play a handful of reels and jigs and hornpipes, and sounded fine, but just destroyed me for the rest of the concert. Not fun. So...here you have my sole recording on this fabulous flute, of the fabulous waltz, and you can both enjoy the vid. Oh, that is the flute in the vid; oiled European boxwood, key-less, D.

    Rob Roy MacGregor + Brenda Stubbert's Reel ~ Fiddle Tunes!

    Here are two fun fiddle tunes: A Scottish strathspey called Rob Roy MacGregor, and Brenda Stubbert's Reel -- a Cape Breton reel that was composed by Jerry Holland in honor of the fiddler, Brenda Stubbert! I also edited together a video showing some of the places I visited when I went to Scotland this summer. =) I had a mountain of footage to sift through, and it was hard to decide which short clips would go into the video. :o Rob Roy MacGregor Strathspey (also known as Rob Ruadh Macghriogair) is an old tune. I'm not sure who wrote it, but I don't hear it played very often - at least not in Colorado. I really like how it sounds, and I hope we start to play it a lot more often! The tune waffles between minor and major keys, and it sort of makes the tune flip between sounding dreary and sad to happy and hopeful. I've heard that Robert Roy MacGregor was a cattle drover (in the United States, we'd probably be more familiar with referring to a cattle drover as a "cowboy"...) and outlaw -- with stories about him depicting him as a Scottish version of Robinhood. Perhaps his more mischievous moments may be why the tune shifts between major and minor? Brenda Stubbert's Reel is a very popular tune composed by Jerry Holland. It can follow lots of different tunes and strathspeys, and almost every session I've been to has played it at some point. I've noticed that a lot of professional fiddle players can somehow get this tune to really dance, and I haven't been able to figure out what they are doing to get it to sound like that. If I ever figure it out, I'll definitely make a video about it, because it's something I've been wanting to learn how to do for a while now. I really love this tune, and I like to play it a lot -- even if my version sounds kind of flat to me! I learned so much while I was in Scotland! One of the things I learned is that a strathspey always needs to be followed by a reel. I was told this is because there is so much tension and emotion in a strathspey, and that the tension needs to be released with a fast-paced reel. I probably would have never learned that if I hadn't gone to Scotland and talked to local musicians, so I thought I'd share the information! :D Knowing that information has helped me start to put together sets a little better. There's something really exciting that forms when you put a reel after a strathspey! Scotland is a beautiful country! I loved visiting all the different museums, historic sites, musicians, and local sessions. I can't believe that I actually was able to go on such a nice trip -- it almost felt like I was living someone else's life... :o Thank you for watching, and I hope you have a good rest of the week! =) ~ Katy ------------ Software and equipment used: Software used (for Macintosh): Garageband for attempted sound mixing Final Cut Pro for video editing PicMonkey.com for the ending cards and thumbnail Plugins for sound effects (I have A LOT to learn in this department!): East West plugins – Goliath Virtual Instrument, Stormdrum II Best Service Forest Kingdom II by Eduardo Tarilonte (See: bestservice.de) Camera: Sony RX100 V Microphone for audio recording: Blue Woodpecker

    Fiddle Tune a Day is my ambitious project to post a new fiddle tune on the web every day for the next year, using both youtube and tumblr. Day344: The Crested Hens: Composed by Gilles Chabenat, a Hurdy Gurdy player from France. The french name for the tune is "Les Poules Huppés", which is a literal translation of the English title. You may be wondering "what an odd title", Gilles himself explained how the tune was named: "I was 15 and couldn't decide on a title, one day we were playing at oxymorons and my friend said "Poulles Huppees" we all laughed at it that for a long time, so I decided to name the tune that... I know it's a dumb title, but we were just dumb kids".

    Ashokan Farewell ~ Fiddle and Cello

    Here is a gorgeous American fiddle tune called, Ashokan Farewell, written by Jay Ungar in 1982. This tune has a very sad emotional feel to it, similar to a Scottish lament, and is often played as a final tune at a fiddle camp in Upstate New York. It was also used in the documentary, "The Civil War," by filmmaker Ken Burns (Ken Burns also invented the "Ken Burns" cinematography pan-and-zoom effect). This tune is named after the town of Ashokan and it's beautiful reservoir, Ashokan Reservoir, in New York . He has sheet music available for purchase on his website: http://jayandmolly.com/store/sheet-music/ I'm learning a new instrument, the cello!!! I'm very nervous to post a video playing an instrument that I really don't know how to play yet, but I felt the same way when I first started posting my own music backing tracks. I've been playing it a few months now, and this is the first time I've tried to play a duet with myself. The cello is similar to the violin in many ways, but it's like I'm playing the violin backwards. It has really taught me what it's like to be a beginner again. I had forgotten what it was like to be frustrated at what seemed to be like the basic concepts of playing an instrument. I've also started to get a much better handle on reading bass clef! I'm super excited about that because I've always struggled with bass clef... I've always thought of the clef as a translation of treble clef, rather than fluently understanding the notes of the clef. The cello makes learning the clef so much easier. The instrument itself is somewhat familiar because of its similarities to the violin, yet the bass clef seems to fit it perfectly. The bass clef is read as a third lower than treble clef, but the larger spacing on the cello seems to "make up for that," with your fingers. With the exception of open strings, the notes "space or "line" that I would normally play as a 4th finger on the violin, I play as a 4th finger on the cello -- only it's a completely different note. It's like it uses the same fingers, but produces different notes...it's hard to explain, but it makes learning bass clef so much easier! =) I guess that is all for now. Mostly just a cello update. ^_^ I'm hoping that by learning a bass instrument that can also be a solo instrument that I will develop a better understanding of bass instruments. Up until now, I've only had bass instruments play chords or rhythm, so I'm excited to start learning how to add in a more melodic bass part to my music. =) Learning bass clef will also help a lot with my very rough, self-taught piano playing and MIDI composition. ^_^ Thank you for watching and reading this long description, and I hope you have a great week!

    St. Anne's Reel + Sally Gardens

    Here are two neat fiddle tunes, "St. Anne's Reel" and "Sally Gardens!" I think St. Anne's is Canadian, and Sally Gardens is Irish. I wanted to also include "St. Joseph's Reel" (also a neat Canadian tune) at the beginning, but I thought it would make the video too long. I think these tunes go well together, and they also are good transition tunes into polkas! St. Anne's is a really happy-sounding tune! I thought I'd play two versions, the first version is a more simplified version that I learned when I was younger, and the second version has a lot more notes; I learned it about a month ago. They both are really fun, but there is something really nice about the simple version. I think it's a little catchier and easier to listen to. (= Sally Garden's is one of those tunes that is really fun to play in sessions! For some reason, everywhere I go, I hear it played differently. I had the tune ingrained in my head differently than how the folks play it near where I live, and I clashed so badly when I tried to play it with everyone.. x_x;; I think I've finally learned a version that is really similar to their version, and I thought I'd make a video of it. Whenever I make a video of a tune, it becomes embedded in my mind so much more than all of the other tunes that I've learned over the years. It's interesting that when this tune is played slowly, it sounds kind of sad and melancholy, but it becomes a happy bouncy tune when it's sped up! It's weird how music can do that! Fall is just around the corner! A lot of these sunflowers aren't looking too happy anymore with the colder morning temperatures now happening. I hope to make a few videos with the pretty fall colors, but the season is usually really short where I live.

    Da Slockit Light -- Scottish Fiddle Slow Air

    This Scottish air was written by Tom Anderson in 1969. It is one of my favorite Scottish airs, and is quite a popular tune amongst many traditional fiddle players I know. Wikipedia states the tune was inspired by the depopulation of his hometown: "I was coming out of Esha Ness in late January, 1969, the time was after 11 pm and as I looked back at the top of the hill leading out of the district, I saw so few lights compared to what I remembered when I was young. As I watched, the lights started going out one by one. That, coupled with the recent death of my wife, made me think of the old word ‘Slockit’ meaning, a light that has gone out, and I think that is what inspired the tune" – from a taped interview. The tune has a very beautiful melody, and, to me, captures a sad feeling of leaving behind a past life. It's a bit depressing to think that nature moves on "forgetting" everything that has happened in the past.. Memories seem to be the only real thing that assures us certain things have happened--and those become lost with time very easily. I hope you do not mind that I played this a bit more "classically," as some fellow jammers would say. I find slow Scottish airs hard to play without vibrato.. I hope you enjoy this version! I had so much fun filming it! I have a bad habit of what people call "flying fingers" when I play... I accidentally flipped the camera off, and it was so obvious I thought it would be offensive and censored it. Yikes! Didn't mean to! Sorry! =S For those who may be wondering about software...

    Morrison's Jig -- Fiddle Tune

    Here is a fun Irish jig called Morrison's! I think the original name for this tune is "Stick Across the Hob," but I've only ever heard it referred to as "Morrison's Jig." I think it was James Morrison who made it popular, but that one of his band member's father wrote the tune. It's a neat tune to play! I thought it would sound good with a lot of bass and drums, so I tried to keep extra treble instruments to a minimum in the backing track. The locations in this video are the Rocky Mountain National Park. More specifically, they are at the lookout points along Trail Ridge Road. I've always wanted to take the drive up this road, and I thought this tune would go perfect with lots of cool mountain backgrounds. I'm definitely in the highlands -- That's for sure! It was super awkward playing this tune at the lookout points while lots of tourists were walking around, but people seemed positive about it. I edited the video to minimize the amount of people walking in the background, but the place was packed with tourists! It was really cold towards the top of the mountains...I definitely wasn't dressed appropriately for the alpine tundra in this video, but I had a coat off camera.. ^-^ If you ever take the same drive up Trail Ridge Road, dress with warm layers -- even if it's blistering hot in the cities at the base of the mountains. I also changed into normal clothing and went on some neat hikes! It was a fun day. =) Thank you for watching! ~Katy ------------ Software and equipment used: Software used (for Macintosh): Garageband for attempted sound mixing Final Cut Pro for video editing Plugins for sound effects (I have A LOT to learn in this department!): East West plugins – Goliath Virtual Instrument, Spaces Best Service plugins – Forest Kingdom II Camera: Canon 70D Microphone: Blue Woodpecker

    Jump at the Sun + Glass Island + Wizard's Walk - Fiddle Tunes

    I was able to visit the U.K. this Summer!!! This video has some clips of a few of the places I visited, and three neat fiddle tunes: Jump at the Sun, Glass Island Reel, and Wizard's Walk. Jump at the Sun is an English tune written by John Kirkpatrick: http://www.johnkirkpatrick.co.uk/ Glass Island Reel is an American tune written by Ethan Hazzard-Watkins: http://www.ethanhw.com/ Wizard's Walk is an American tune written by Jay Ungar: http://jayandmolly.com/ They are really neat, more modern tunes! They all have a twist to them that makes them really interesting - Jump at the Sun and Wizard's Walk use some really neat sounding accidentals, and Glass Island has an interesting jig-like pulse in the A Part, given that it's actually a reel. I really wanted to play and English tune since I was going to spend a significant amount of time in England, and Jump at the Sun was one of the few English tunes I knew. I believe Glass Island and Wizard's Walk are both American tunes, but I think they all fit together okay. =) The main goal of my vacation was to learn as much as I could about traditional music in the U.K. I spent one week in England, a few days in Northern Wales, and another week in Scotland. I went to as many music venues and sessions as I could find, and I met so many talented musicians and learned so much about the traditional music that I love to play. I noticed that the traditional music seemed to be harder to find in England, and I couldn't find much outside of music stores in Wales. Busking is illegal in many English cities that I visited, and I found it difficult to find places I could play music to film the video without people thinking I was busking. I purchased multiple English country dance tunes music books, and I'm excited to learn more English tunes! Right now, I know only a few English tunes - so it will be great to learn more. Although I couldn't find many sessions in England, I had an amazing time visiting, and have many nice new tune books to learn from. =) Wales was also a very nice country to visit. I think I will want to plan a vacation specifically to visit more of Wales someday. Wales was beautiful, and even with the rain and gloves, I had an amazing time! ^_^ As soon as I traveled to Scotland, it had a completely different music vibe compared to England. There were people playing their fiddles and bagpipes all over the place, and a session in nearly every bar/pub. The Malones on the Mall Irish pub in Edinburgh (http://www.malonesedinburgh.com/) allowed me to film a few tunes on their property in the morning after I had asked. I liked that people seemed to appreciate the music in Scotland. It makes sense that there was so much more music in Scotland after i learned more about the history and how traditional music impacted the people living there. There have been great efforts to preserve Scottish traditional music, and I had the great honor to visit the Highland Music Trust - a group of extremely talented people who dedicated hours upon hours of time writing down as many Scottish tunes as they can (This is not sponsored! They are just awesome): http://www.heallan.com/ I bought 2 of their books and a CD, and I've been having the best time looking through all the Scottish tunes. =) I filmed a second video of just Scottish tunes while I was in Scotland, and I'm excited to start working on editing it together! I have so much footage, so if anyone is interested in some of the other Scottish footage, I could make a second video-clip montage video. I'm not sure how well this one will go over, so I'll see how it goes. It's something a bit different from the other content I've made...I think it's important to change things up a bit every-now-and-then to keep things interesting. Thank you for watching, and I hope you have a good rest of the week! =) ~ Katy ------------ Software and equipment used: Software used (for Macintosh): Garageband for attempted sound mixing Final Cut Pro for video editing PicMonkey.com for the ending cards Plugins for sound effects (I have A LOT to learn in this department!): East West plugins – Goliath Virtual Instrument, Stormdrum II Best Service Forest Kingdom II by Eduardo Tarilonte (See: bestservice.de) Wavemod for mastering (medium boost) (https://www.wavemod.com/) Camera: Sony RX100 V Microphone for audio recording: Blue Woodpecker Glass Island Reel by Ethan Hazzard-Watkins ©1997 by Ethan Hazzard-Watkins.

    Tam Lin The Glasgow Reel - Celtic Fiddle Tune!

    Tam Lin is one of my favorite Celtic fiddle tunes! If you like this video, please subscribe for more videos like this coming up! =) I was asked if I could make a tutorial for playing Tam Lin, so here is a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VpUIxg1Mnbk It's geared more towards beginners and playing by ear. I'm a little nervous and awkward talking to the camera, but hopefully it's still useful! =) Sheet music for this particular version can be found here: http://katyadelson.com/music/ Several people at an Irish session that I go to aren't quite as big fans of this tune (especially the flute players...), but I think it's tons of fun! I made a backing track to go with it so that I can play it whenever I want! After finishing school and following a career path that has nothing to do with music, I realized that I missed playing. It was like I put a part of me on a shelf and focused on being a big Career Woman.. I've always wanted to be independent, but that doesn't necessarily mean one is happy.. This past summer I started playing a lot. It has brought back so many good memories, and has been something I look forward to each day. I also have realized that part of what used to drive me to practice was the concept of having something to practice for. I love to play, but I slip into playing the same pieces over and over again if there isn't extra guidance to try something new. Since I can't afford enough time to devote to private lessons, I'm hoping starting a YouTube will push me to explore new musical worlds and focus on improving my playing. I'm amazed at how much filming myself has pointed out so many flaws in my playing. My sense of intonation has greatly deteriorated from what I remember it being years ago before my music hiatus. I've also learned how difficult it is to record the violin! I know I hear the violin differently than the audience as it is right under my ear, but it has been interesting trying to record my playing. Next time, I think I need to set the recorder further back to prevent the sound from “cracking.” This was my first attempt at making a backing track. I hope you like the results—I had so much fun coming up with this! It's kind of quiet unless you wear headphones..hmm..not really sure how to fix that if it's a bass-heavy song? Also, I think YouTube shifted the audio ever so early--it makes the song almost look an eighth note ahead from the visual towards the end..hmm.. For those who may be wondering about software...
