WORLD: Celtic, FOLK: Modern Folk
In this rapidly changing, constantly shrinking world, it's difficult to imagine anything like pure tradition. But what do seem to endure are concepts like earnest intention, real craftsmanship, the joy of making something with others whom we care about, and the transplendent, transcendence of music.
Based in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, where literally on the way in the door to practice or record, we can watch the sun set over newly mown fields and a team of mules rounding the corner to the barn. Or in harvest time, view shocked corn standing like silent tributes to the earth's bounty. We members of Gladly Playe Wyth Stryngs live and work amid these traditions. We believe that somehow that same set of rural intentions and the earnestness of this life style of neighboring farmers may just seep through to you in our recordings.
Gladly Playe Wyth Stryngs is a hammered dulcimer based band that in 2003 saw the increased use of Irish whistles. We liked the way they sounded against the violin and were very much-welcomed additions to our songs. We felt so good about them that we wanted to preserve them in a recording while they were fresh. But since we are a string-based band, would it fly?
We believe that it does! Here is a collection of some of our newest favorite songs and tunes. Some are hundreds of years old, just like those farming traditions across the way and some are fresh from Scotland's Dougie McLean's pen, as are this season's crops from our fields. We hope that they bring you joy in the hearing...as much as they have provided to us in the playing. We also hope you remain in touch with the band. We so much appreciate hearing from you.
