My Love’s On A Train

Another simple, fun slip jig, first heard by me through a phone, from a recording by Marla Fibish. This one I wrote up myself. Fibish varies the tune almost every time through it, so I chose what I liked the best and what made the most sense. The variations I’m talking about are very slight (pedaling a note vs. holding vs. playing alternating notes when maybe just a simple dotted quarter note would suffice).

This is on Alison Perkins and Nicolas Brown’s All Covered In Moss, I want to say they wrote it? Will check on the morning.

Re: My Love’s On A Train

Wow, that’s cool that Marla learned it. I did write it!

That’s great! Thanks for the sweet tune!

ETA: checking your and Alison’s music out right now. I love the pipes, so this is a great find.

Re: My Love’s On A Train

Forgot to check two weeks ago, finally remembered this morning, but I see Nico resolved the question in a timely fashion anyway. 🙂

“My Love’s On A Train?” Partings can be sweet sorrow, more’s the pity. Tune’s very much OK tho.

Re: My Love’s On A Train

I learned it from Marla at a workshop last November. I’d heard it before, as I already had “All Covered In Moss”, but I didn’t make the connection at the time.
