Member recordings

Some of you old(er) members may have recorded yourself & posted tunes on sites like Mighty Craic &/or SoundLantern. Both of which are now long gone. I have an itty-bitty interest in finding some of those recordings if you still have any copies. No need to embarass yourself publically. You can PM me w/Dropbox links. Or if you really have something brilliant, by all means respond directly on this thread.

For newer, less than shy members (&/or background, non-posting types) I want to hear from you too.

Are there any currently active non-video, non-YouTube sites (or blogs) for posting Irish, acoustic, trad recordings I don’t know about ?
Thanks in advance & don’t hesitate to message me if you have the goods,
Ben

Re: Member recordings

Sorry, probably only some if any members from here but I thought it might be of interest.

Re: Member recordings

Cheers, Donough! I listen mostly on SoundCloud. I can usually find what I’m looking for and there is always something new.

Cheers, Fizzit! I was thinking about clips & snips. Thanks for the link. I saved a couple of tunes from Lesl Harker (member) & Michael Eskin (active member) has a Bb recording of Hunter’s Purse which I saved. There are a few thesession members, but they are not all currently active on the board; Steve Shaw, Enda Seery, Gian Marco, Joshua Dukes…

I have not heard from anyone w/Sound Lantern mp3s. I did listen when it was still online. Maybe I’ll search for Mighty Craic. It was active before I joined thesession.org.

Appreciate the replies,
Ben

ps ~ Donough, weren’t you on SoundLantern?

Re: Member recordings

I make a point of never recording my member.

Re: Member recordings

Hi AB,

I still have the entire collection of submissions to my Mighty Craic project of 2005. All the member names and their tunes sets.

Now, if the original Mighty Craic site were still active I would link you to that, but it’s not. Not knowing who would or wouldn’t be happy with their submissions being made public now, I can’t (or shouldn’t) go any further.

I don’t know … would it be ethical to list the members’ names, and the names of their sets, without actually posting the audios? It would be tricky, given that members can change there usernames as often as they want, plus the fact that I’m sure many of those aren’t active any longer …

What does everyone think?

Re: Member recordings

I’m OK with info about the track we submitted being listed (not that I’m all that happy about the music in that track that was recorded so many years ago ;-))

Re: Member recordings

Jim, you can message me any recording(s) you made of yourself for the Mighty Craic. Dropbox links work for me. But I’m not looking for anything which is not currently online & which the musician hasn’t said it’s OK.
Having said that you might say something about how the original site [MC] came about, since some people reading this might not know anything about it.

Re: Member recordings

Mighty Craic was Jim’s project, if I remember correctly…

Re: Member recordings

Yes. Jim got it online in 2005. The original site had limited bandwidth and eventually it went offline and another member may have started it up again. I only know this from digging in thesession archives and using the wayback machine to look at snapshots.

Re: Member recordings

@AB: If I was on Sound lantern I really don’t remember. I think the recording I did for the Mighty Craic was an O’Carolan tune on the guitar (hadn’t started the fiddle then). Not sure if I even have that recording now. You might find other stuff of mine on Soundcloud but not really appropriate for this forum as its self-indulgent original stuff.

Re: Member recordings

Hello, and sorry for the delay in replying. Too much musication!

It started in 2005 as an idea of mine, after some discussions on here about members, what instrument did they play, what tunes, with whom, what did they sound like, etc etc.

I think it was from a discussion with member Zina Lee, who is kind of inactive at the moment, and I suggested that all interested members send me an mp3 of their playing, which they did.

I made up a little webpage on my site, and uploaded all the stuff - musician’s profile, pic, and their tunes.

It all went rather well, then it kind of fizzled out. The site was still active, but then something else happened - the web provider somehow "lost" the data, and so I started again with another site.

When I got it all ready to go again, I made an announcement here, but then some people (for whatever reason) asked for their stuff to be taken down. Member names had changed, so I was left with a bunch of stuff that I didn’t know to whom much of it belonged, or who still wanted in, who wanted out, who wasn’t sure, but would get back to me, etc :)

So, in the end it was never resurrected.

I still have all the original submissions, so I’ll do a quick listing here of the names of the members who contributed (remember, this is going back 14 years or so, so many user names will have changed ). It’s just a directory listing, and some are just user names, others are user names + tune names. Happy days!
