Today’s music was very close to being dumped from my playlist!
Martin is a brilliant folk guitarist but his rendering of three Celtic airs was too classical, taking the music too far from its normal style. I could appreciate the playing but it was wrong.
Fortunately, I realised that I was wrong: I had constrained the music by stating how it should be played. I wanted it as I had always known it. How closed was I.
Relax and let the music speak as though I had never heard the airs before.
I was free and the music was now free to weave its magic within me.
What will it do for you?
Medley of Celtic Airs Martin Simpson
[The 3 tunes are: 'Rosie Anderson', 'The Shearing's Not For Me', and 'Bogie's Bonny Belle'.]
A level of beauty never before revealed.
That was close.
