FTX-301 - DIDDLE-DADDLE

Mouth Music of Britain & Ireland

Some 60 samples from Britain and Ireland - diddling, jigging, lilting, or, as the gypsies call it, 'tuning up', the Gaelic name being 'port-a-beul' - these are vocables used, without instruments, mainly for dancing but also for dandling - or for bird-catching, using the sounds of more than 15 types of birds - or for "keening", mourning the dead. The Highland tinker pipers have their own notation language they call 'cantering' (Cantearachd) - Duncan BURKE, Maggie CHAMBERS, Kitty GALLAGHER, Mary GILLIS, Maggie McDONAGH, Henry McGREGOR, Frank McKEOWN, Kitty McLEOD, Joe MOLLOY, Mary MORRISON & Jimmy STEWART
