honoring Dave at the bardic circle
- In honor of Dave Carter�s death 10 years ago this past month, I had the
privilege of performing a number of Dave Carter songs at a bardic circle
gathering in Indianapolis, IN this past weekend.
Here is the list of the songs. There were a number of folks there who had
never heard of Dave and it�s always wonderful to watch people fall in love
with Dave�s songs for the first time.
�Three Fingered Jack�
�Love the Magician�
On "Three Fingered Jack" I played with a �double drop down D� tuning on the
guitar, which gives the song a bit of a droning feel which I think works
well with both the melody and the lyrics.
My friend Daisy sang and I played guitar on "Love the Magician". This is
her favorite Dave Carter song, which she calls her "favorite redneck hick"
song, adding a bit of twang to the tune :)
"Preston Miller" led to a discussion of when and where folks first learned
the word "fop".
"Blue Wing" is not a Dave song, but is written by Tom Russell, and is one
of the songs Tracy sings.
Over all, it was a lot of fun performing these songs in Dave's memory and
keeping his music alive.
