    Thanks for the tunes and instruments, Jo. I always enjoy your postings. Still, I never thought I'd hear the old Canadian campfire song, "Land of The Silver Birch" played on oud. It worked well. This song is still popular in Canada, though many of us are uncomfortable with the pseudo-First Nations lyrics, especially the "boomdidi boom boom" line, meant to sound like indigenous drumming. Still, the song evokes the love so many Canadians have for the woodland, even though today most of us are urbanites.

    Land of the silver birch
    Home of the beaver
    Where still the mighty moose
    Wanders at will
    Refrain:
    Blue lake and rocky shore
    I will return once more
    boomdidi boom boom – boomdidi boom boom – boomdidi boom boom boom

    In Windsor, Ontario, where I learned the song, we sang "Close to Lake Huron's shore/ I will return once more," Lake Huron being where many local people went to camp in the "north woods."

    Jo, I know you had the world music radio program, but I still wonder where and how you find so much varied and interesting music. Recordings? Travel? Printed sheet music?

    Very interesting! I was not aware of the problematic lyrics, so I apologise for any offence caused.

    I had indeed missed that thread, so thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    I find much of this sheet music online. Some of the Iranian stuff is from my teacher Negar Bouban, the rest just from online also.

    Here is my duo Finders Keepers from our world debut at Parkside Lounge in lower Manhattan last night. This is the third song of the set, just after "Maggie May." (Unfortunately, the guy shooting video botched just about everything he did, including that all-important classic.) It's the first single off her 1996 debut, "Between The 1 & The 9."

    Close - she's from New York. The reference is to the subway platform where she used to busk before she got discovered. The 9 train has since been discontinued. IIRC your 1 and 9 are highway route numbers. As in "Born To Run": "sprung from cages on Highway 9."

    Absolutely no offence taken. You were playing a tune, not singing a song. Anyway, these matters are complex. If I'm with a group and someone sings "Land of The Silver Birch," I join in. As I said, the song evokes the love of the northern forest, where I love to spend time. However, we Canadians have our own issues to work out with indigenous people ("Truth and Reconciliation" is the term). In truth, non-indigenous people singing folk songs is very low down on their list of concerns. I don't think you'll be offending anyone by playing that tune. I enjoyed it.

    Not sure if this is the right place for this (mods please delete if not), but I put together an album of oud music here: https://dusepo.bandcamp.com/album/waves-of-sound

    I met Negar in Crete in March 2019. She was teaching an oud course, and I was doing groupwork with Efren Lopez at the same time. Her concert was fantastic. Very nice lady as well.

    A couple of years ago I placed an order for what I thought would be the last mandolin purchase I would make. This clip of me doodling around is on the F5 I received. It's just at the 6 month mark. Enjoyable instrument, wish I could play it better but it's always fun to pick it up.

    This is a recording I made of my 1977 Bill Halsey F5. My laptop is poor quality but the F5 is a true inspiration each time I pick it up to play. #nontraditionaltune.
