Winter Song - Lindisfarne cover

Thanks for introducing me to that song and Lindisfarne, flatbaroque. Great song--haunting, really--and your performance of it is perfect for it.

 

Man, there's more than enough talent on this forum to put together a good seasonal or holiday-themed compilation CD. "The Gibson Acoustic Forum Plays Six Strings For The Season". Or, "The Gibson Acoustic Forum Goes Whole Hog For The Holidays" if no one plays a J-200!

Thanks everyone.I wasn't sure whether Lindisfarne were ever popular in the US. Looks as though they had some impact as 62Burst has confirmed.

Fun song to play. I found the chords on the band's official website. Chords to 230 songs. Generous people. I think the writer / singer Allan Hull is long gone though.

Funny about Red's reference to Hog Heaven.When I was playing it I was thinking this would really sound good on a J-200...Maple Madness! [smile]

edit...I now realise 62B was referring to visiting the place of Lindisfarne digitally not revisiting vinyl days of the band..so maybe they didn't make it in the US

Versatile "meet me on the corner" that's another good one..how about "we can swing together" that was a great sing along.

Lindisfarne were never big here, but they had a bit of a cult following as part of the "magic folk/Celtic folk-rock" school in the late 60's and early 1970's. They were completely overshadowed in the US by their American semi-parallels, as well as some UK groups like Pentangle.

I think you've overthunk it sal.

 

I guessed its from flat baroque and berserk by Roy harper ... and I'd highly recommend you checking that album out !

 

Yep it is a pun.And yep from Roy Harper.When I just joined here there was a classical guitarist that used to post .Matt his name was I think.He specialised in baroque music so the name amused him.He was an unassuming guy but if you followed the links to his homepage...he was one of England's foremost classical players.

And BBG i'm working on a medley of Danny Boy and Fog on Tyne coming in a virus to an iPhone near you [biggrin]

I am so slow..... I always knew that Murphy Slaw was a cute pun. I finally this morning "got" Flat Baroque (FlatBroke).

 

Ok sorry for the diversion...

 

See, Flat Baroque I recognized as a pun immediately, but not Murphy Slaw until you pointed it out just now. So I am slow as you but in a different way.
