About One Tune, Two Styles:
Tunes can take interesting journeys from one genre to another. We’re all aware of tunes that have crossed boundaries over time, especially older historical melodies. Tom discovered an Irish trad reel, John Stenson’s #2, which was recorded by Kevin Burke for his classic 1978 album “If The Cap Fits”, but has recently found a new life, having been rearranged as an Old-Time tune by Rachel Eddy and then adapted as a bluegrass instrumental by mandolin/fiddler Nate Lee. Tom will teach the original Irish version and then show the tune’s clever adaptation into these other styles.
Tom Morley’s career spans over thirty years and a host of genres. He’s played Celtic, Bluegrass, classical, swing, Americana, and Country Honky-Tonk, earning an RIAA Certified Gold Record award for his work with “new traditionalist” country artist John Anderson. Read More About Tom→
