Jack Hickman - Kingston, ON Canadian midi site back on line (13) RE: Canadian midi site back on line 03 Jul 99


Glad to hear you're back. Your site is one of the best things to have happened to the Internet since I've been surfing, which ain't that long.

You might recall that I sent you an e-mail a while back regarding the "Emigrant's Daughter" and the fact that the band in which I play, the Kingston Ceili Band, have adopted that particular piece as an integral part of our repertoire. At this time, one of the ladies in our group is singing it solo, but we are working on an arrangement which will include all the instruments in the group, fiddles, flute, guitars and bodhran. It should be a spectacular sound.

And while on the subject, on June 13 last, the same young lady sang the Emigrant's daughter at an outdoor Mass to commemorate the 1500 famine victims buried in a mass grave here in Kingston 150 years ago. You could have heard a pin drop, and literally, there wasn't a dry eye in the house.

Keep up the good work. If we ever get to recording the piece, we'll make you famous.

And to all the mudcatters who have faithfully read the above reference to the Emigrant's Daughter, trust me, it is well worth downloading both words and music from Barry's site.
