Description
On this beautiful fall day I took my tin whistle out on the porch. The O'Shaunessy boys decided to join me on this particular tune which is commonly ascribed to John "Zeb" Bach.

Bright and lively. Very enjoyable!

Methinks
the little O'Shaunessy drummer boy should have stayed home that day (fine family though they may be). Otherwise, a solid piece: your whistle skills are in fine fettle, and the backing tracks lend a plastic -almost Wendy Carlosian- feel to the whole thing. Your breath control here is exceptional.

Love,

MoM

Toot suite
or is it toots sweet? This allegro suits the tin whistle, and you've done it with gusto.

Time for me to come clean
I'm afraid some of the listeners here have caught me a little fib. The second half of this piece is rather hard, so there has been some tape splicing going on, and that may have eliminated a breath or two. I apologize humbly for deceiving this esteemed audience.

Amazing.
Well one thing that's amazing is that it doesn't sound as if you came anywhere near running out of breath while playing. A solid, lively performance of a lovely piece of music.

Parts of the Sum
I thought you had moved. Just back visiting the home fields for a little classical hoedown?

The whistle is lively and a delight to follow. The backing music feels perfunctory; I think it would be nice if there was a little interaction between the parts.

Beauty!
On behalf of those who care about such things, you should be ashamed (see admission above). As for the rest of us, bravo! This is sprightly and delicious. Thanks.

Nice!
Just as fun and joyful as it is enjoyable and unusual! How did you record this - as a group or individually?

Eclectic hybrid
Sounds like a blend of a spritely Scottish highlander and a logy washtub band from the Tennessee Valley. I think I 'd rather have just the penny whistle solo. It's good! What is the name of the Bach tune?

Bach Tune
This is called Allegro and it is from the 1st flute sonata in C, which is for flute and continuo. So apart from the drums this interpretation is actually legitimate. It carries Bach's name, but as with several of Bach's more beloved works (Toccata and Fugue 565, Bist du bei mir) it is doubtful that it was actually written by him. This movement doesn't feel like Bach, but at least it's fun; the rest of the sonata is decidedly thin.

Thanks, Vic, for the extra background. I like the energy of the piece. And it is fun.

Brisk and lively, TV. Some fine control. The O'Shaunessy boys did well to keep up. Glad I stopped by. Regards, Peter.

After a day's work in the fields I enjoy playing the pump organ. Some of it pleases my wife Dotty, and some of it pleases the neighbours. I hope it may please you too.... [see more]
