  1. I'm playing a nice harmony to the fiddles in this house concert recording of a lovely Swedish wedding march.
  2. I haven't posted anything for a while, but here's a cool (and rather eccentric) polska I recently started playing again on concertina.
  3. It's New Year's Eve, and I'm ending the year with the last song from the solo half of my Twelfth Night (January 6th) Austin house concert from the beginning of the year. Shakespeare ends his play with the fool singing of the observations throughout his life, so it seems appropriate to end the year with a song of life's observations.
  4. Here's an old Swedish wedding march I'm playing with my band in Austin. I love how the concertina blends with the fiddles.
  5. Here's a couple of tunes from Stabi and Hjorth: https://youtu.be/jdNtYVXwmF8 and https://youtu.be/4ceOgfM3udM
  6. Thanks Ceemonster. I have a whole bunch of these tunes on YouTube. Here's the playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15BK_rnevvM&list=PLA6DA50B68BE3813D
  7. Here's a wedding march from Leksands (Dalarna) which I've become very fond of. https://youtu.be/15BK_rnevvM Enjoy, Mark Gilston https://www.markgilston.com/
  8. Here's another song I learned a long time ago. It's a fine old ballad from the Adirondack Mountains of New York. https://youtu.be/MCPBNxTX2Y8 Enjoy, Mark Gilston
  9. I've been doing a "Folklore Series" of songs I learned from oral tradition in my childhood. Most of them I sing unaccompanied as I learned them, but some of them I've incorporated into my performances, and those I accompany with dulcimer, guitar or concertina. Here is Lather and Shave, a song I've performed with concertina since the mid 1970's, If you want to skip the intro and get right to the song, it begins at 45 seconds into the video. https://youtu.be/weXBNWN59A8 Enjoy, Mark Gilston
