Artist Bio

Influences:   folk music/world music/olde English pub songs/oldtime/bluegrass/Celtic music/blues/classical/reggae/

I started piano at age seven, guitar at twelve, mandolin at thirty-five, fiddle at forty-five, and started writing tunes at age fifty-nine. Been a while now and I never looked back.

I just want to add that this FAWM 2021 has been incredible. Everyone is so kind and supportive. And all the music you all are making here is such an inspiration. I never thought I could do it. Then I thought Well, if I get one tune, that's one more than I had before.

    Thanks so much Pippa.. it's also been my first Fawm and I've enjoyed it. Is there a way to keep in touch after February or does this group remain active? Also after your comment on Being with my kids... I went up to my 9 year olds room and was looking at him thinking how did he get to look so grown up all of a sudden... I was staring and giving him cuddles then he opened his eyes and said ' you woke me up!' oops!

    Thank you for the note. I enjoyed what I heard of your Fawm this year. And yes, I hope to see you around and about this year. Hopefully that means we have more live music in the world.

    I DID IT! woohoo! I never thought I could come up with that many tunes in such a short period of time. Nothing like a challenge to get things rolling. YAY!

    Hey Pippa, thanks for your comments. I score each instrument in MuseScore3 I could send you the file for you to see if you are curious. I used the MS3 file because the Harmonica and Upright Bass sounded better than anything in GarageBand. Send your email address to redclay_dragon@yahool.com. The MuseScore file fits easily into an email attachment.

    thanks for your comment on Leave Me Alone! I am enjoying listening to your songs, reminds me of my bluegrass childhood and joyous irish traditional- simple sounding but actually not. charming&impressive

  • @berni1954  2 weeks

    Ah, it seems the video was by your collaborator, then, was it?

  • @berni1954  2 weeks

    Glad you liked my collab with Arthur (The Night that Never Ends).
    The "Mother to his son" line refers to the fact that the "someone" who is now sharing his life with the narrator's ex-girlfriend, is probably a man and she (the narrator's ex-girlfriend) may have had a child with her new man. I added that couplet because the structure I had envisioned demanded it and the image suggests that some considerable time has passed since the narrator and the ex-lover addressed parted; long enough for her to build up a relationship with a new person and perhaps for it to get serious enough for the idea of kids to be raised, agreed to and pit into practice.

    Hope that explanation doesn't ruin it for you πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for the details Pippa, my actual name is Tim Conway but for music I tend to use the band name of The Pannacotta Army.

    Thanks so much for your lovely comment on β€œIt’s New Day”!

    what, you don't speak Gaelic ?

  • @scubed  4 weeks

    Welcome to FAWM, Pippa! I notice you and I share similar musical trajectories: I started piano at six, guitar at 11, fiddle at 40 - picked up a few other instruments somewhere along the way. While I was still working, I had to squeeze music into the spaces in between. Retirement is good! 😁

    re: Responding. Typically we put all replies to your songs and your soundboard on the other person's soundboard. They are sure to see it that way.

    Thanks for the comment. I appreciate it.

  • @tcelliott  4 weeks
