We are four Bostonians who perform celtic folk music from Nova Scotia. We all have at least one parent from Nova Scotia and spent lots of time there growing up. We also embrace being from Boston and have been influenced by the rich Irish traditions of our area. Our fiddler Doug Lamey is the grandson of Boston Cape Breton fiddling legend Bill Lamey. He's been playing since he was a kid and has studied with some of the greats from both the Cape Breton tradition (Buddy MacMaster) and Irish fiddle scene (Tommy Peoples). http://www.douglamey.com/ We are lucky to have two of the best stepdancers in the Boston area, Pam Campbell and Christine Morrison. Pam is the daughter of fiddling legend John Campbell. Christine is the daughter of Peggy Morrison who is president of the Gaelic Club in Watertown, MA. Pam & Christine have been dancing together for 16 years and have shared the stage with Natalie MacMaster and Ashley MacIsaac to drop some names. I sing in both English and Scottish Gaelic. I play guitar and Irish Tin whistle and make my living as a musician/storyteller. I am steeped in Irish music on my dads side of the family (Clifford's in Sliabh Luachra) and Scottish on moms side. I recieved my MA in Folklore from Memorial University in Newfoundland. http://www.cliffmcgann.com/ We've all played together informally over the years but are finally making it official. We've settled on the name The Boston Kiltics as it captures our love of Scottish folk music but also the fact we are from Boston and proud. This was recorded for a local TV station and is only our second official gig together. Visit us on the Web @ http://www.bostonkiltics.com Visit us on MySpace @ http://www.myspace.com/bostonkiltics

Tam Lin is one of my favorite Celtic fiddle tunes! If you like this video, please subscribe for more videos like this coming up! =) I was asked if I could make a tutorial for playing Tam Lin, so here is a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VpUIxg1Mnbk It's geared more towards beginners and playing by ear. I'm a little nervous and awkward talking to the camera, but hopefully it's still useful! =) Sheet music for this particular version can be found here: http://katyadelson.com/music/ Several people at an Irish session that I go to aren't quite as big fans of this tune (especially the flute players...), but I think it's tons of fun! I made a backing track to go with it so that I can play it whenever I want! After finishing school and following a career path that has nothing to do with music, I realized that I missed playing. It was like I put a part of me on a shelf and focused on being a big Career Woman.. I've always wanted to be independent, but that doesn't necessarily mean one is happy.. This past summer I started playing a lot. It has brought back so many good memories, and has been something I look forward to each day. I also have realized that part of what used to drive me to practice was the concept of having something to practice for. I love to play, but I slip into playing the same pieces over and over again if there isn't extra guidance to try something new. Since I can't afford enough time to devote to private lessons, I'm hoping starting a YouTube will push me to explore new musical worlds and focus on improving my playing. I'm amazed at how much filming myself has pointed out so many flaws in my playing. My sense of intonation has greatly deteriorated from what I remember it being years ago before my music hiatus. I've also learned how difficult it is to record the violin! I know I hear the violin differently than the audience as it is right under my ear, but it has been interesting trying to record my playing. Next time, I think I need to set the recorder further back to prevent the sound from “cracking.” This was my first attempt at making a backing track. I hope you like the results—I had so much fun coming up with this! It's kind of quiet unless you wear headphones..hmm..not really sure how to fix that if it's a bass-heavy song? Also, I think YouTube shifted the audio ever so early--it makes the song almost look an eighth note ahead from the visual towards the end..hmm.. For those who may be wondering about software... Software used (for Macintosh): Garageband for attempted sound mixing Final Cut Pro for video editing Plugins for sound effects (I have A LOT to learn in this department..haha!): East West plugins – Goliath (my favorite so far!), Stormdrum II, Hollywood Strings, Spaces (See: soundsonline.com) Piano Keyboard: An old Casiotone CT-630 electric piano (61 keys) with a midi to USB adaptor Camera: Canon 70D; I've been super happy with this camera. Thank you for watching! ~ Katy
