Tunes from the KelticDead: MacPherson's Rant

MacPherson's Lament or RantOn Playing the tune with the Diatonic HarmonicaI've arranged the sheet music in the Key of G, but the tune is best played with a low-D, diatonic harmonica.  As with all folk tunes, the sheet music is a "notional" representation of the way the tune might be played. It does not mean that it must exactly follow how the lyrics.You can visit my website [ ] to see more about this and other tunes. I also try to…See More

Song-Catching with the KelticDead

I have been getting some very good feedback from musically inclined "Celtic" folk from around the world with my sharing tunes and songs that I collect. I focus on playing the tunes with diatonic harmonicas and present only the sheet music that is arranged for those instruments. This song-catching initiative is part of my KelticDead_Music mission, and it's fun. The idea is to show how these "Keltic and Folk" tunes can be played, and…See More

Folk Music in Allen, Texas ????

There are so many "closet" folk musicians around and you can find them everywhere, and every community should have one. Last year two ladies, Judi Altstatt and Jeanne Fisher created the Allen Folk Music Society in Allen, Texas. This year, they're branching out to help establish a place for all these quiet folk musicians in the Allen Community and beyond to meet, share coffee, and hear/or play Folk, Old Timey, Celtic, Irish, Bluegrass, and pop music, as well as a place for storytelling, and…

Celtic Harmonica with P-zazz!

This Saturday, February 6th, the Trinity River Whalers visit the Trinity Hall Irish Pub in Allen, Texas. Aside from some fantastic singing, guitar playing, mandolin picking music, by Micheal Price, Marj Troyer, Steve and Roger Harrison, Randy Christian plays the congas and blends in some mighty fine harp music. Randy is kinda shy when it comes to his musical talents and the harmonica, whistle, drums, and any other noise maker you can find, but without a doubt his rhythm with the harmonica makes… Continue

Irish Sessiuns

Happy New Year.

Traditionally, a Celtic music "sessiun" is a gathering of like minded folk musicians who come together to play a variety of instruments with music that is in the traditions of their Celtic cultures [Irish-Scots-Wales-Americana-etc.]. These sessiuns are usually lead by one person who keeps the group on track with the theme of that purpose. The Trinity Hall Irish Pub in Dallas have been sponsoring sessiuns for a number of years under the direction of the "Traditional… Continue

Just in time for Halloween [Samhain time]

For those of you who like harps (harmonicas that is), I just got my new harp tune worked up that I've always associated with this Celtic new year [Samhain time for you Celtic folk out there]. Dunmore Lasses is a lively tune, and yet has a mystical feel about it that I've always loved. Hope you do too. Visit my KelticDead Music site at

OMG! I didn't get home last night until ... well, this morning until 6:45 AM! My two daughters were furious with me! :-) I am so glad we got a chance to actually meet... and can't wait to jam! Jody's beautiful young neighbor wanted to sing "Fields of Athenrye"... then she had everyone listen to a song by "Floggy Molly"! Please let me know when you are playing somewhere!

I have two harps, a key of C Cracker Barrel special and a Lee Oskar Dm my daughter gave me. Trying to learn. You're right, easier to pack than my guitar, banjo and fiddle these days.
