“Jen & Anthony’s Wedding Day” ~ C: Colin Grant (SOCAN)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pbalGF2sH9o


This transcription is courtesy of Colin Grant. I’d done a transcription but it wasn’t much different from his, and so I’m giving his here and will add another later, and one in G as well. I’ts a lovely tune and definitely raises emotions in me, and a longing for another of our homes, Maratime Canada, and in especially Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, and its people and its traditions of music and dance and good food…

Here’s where I first was directed to this lovely melody ~

And much thanks to Patagonico for sharing and asking, and to Colin for sending the dots and allowing me to add it here…

I still have to chase up his CD for our further listening pleasure…

“Jenn & Anthony’s Wedding Day” ~ C: Colin Grant

Here’s a bit of what Colin shared with me, some clarification and a bit of the story behind the tune:

It’s "Jenn", good friend of mine and twin sister to fellow CB musician Adam Young (piano). Made this tune the night before the wedding despite having to name it three weeks before in time for the printing of the ceremony bulletins. Confirmed what I already should have known; I work better under pressure.

However, the church was so small, I only got to play the A part once through for her to get to the altar with her father. After the ceremony, she said she didn’t hear a note - too nervous about tripping and falling in her high heels to listen to my tune on which I’d worked so long and hard.

Ha. Promised then to record it for "Fun For The Whole Family", and couldn’t resist re-recording it a little slower with Sprag Session…seems it’s one of our "hits".

All the best, and hope the tunes and good times treat you well. Cheers - Colin Grant

As Colin already has provided the dots, the PDF linked to previously, I’m changing the given transcription to one pulled together from Colin’s own playing of this, to show some other few possibilities with it, under his bow… I’ll add the ABCs for his own notes later here in the comments.

I just love this tune! (and Colin Grant)

Saw CG in Vancouver for Celtic Fest. He played this tune among many others, and gave an awesome fiddle workshop. Wow! Amazing. I have listened to both verseions of J and A’s Wedding on his CD’s over and over, and working on playing them (badly) myself. Thanks Colin, for sharing your music, and thanks Patagonico.

Lovely. Thank you, Ceol and Colin Grant.

Of the two recorded versions I prefer the one on the Sprag Session CD (released 2012), where the tune is taken at a more leisurely pace. But a great tune from a great guy.
