The Lagniappe Sessions :: Daniel Bachman


Bachman tips his hat to Jack Rose and William Moore. The Rose piece is quite reverent and he injects just enough of his own personality. Go listen, free mp3s.

Aloha, Mahalo - RC Johnston

Aloha my friends. It's time for another release from RC Johnston. This is a live recording of Ralph from 2012 in Vancouver. Ralph had recently returned from a trip to Hawaii and was keen to play all his recent slack key style songs. This music was originally released over at Ryan Leaf's site along with some other performances that took place that night.  I recommend you check them out. The wave files for Ralph's show are there too if you would rather have those than the MP3s offered here.

Ralph offers up a healthy helping of Hawaiian style songs, almost all original and gives you a little background for each one. It's like sitting at the show yourself!

We're talking two sets, 15 songs and a whole lotta entertainment all for the usual low price imposed by Ralph. Nothing. Nada, zip.

All you gotta do is sit back and enjoy.  Oh, and you might want to let Ralph know you enjoyed the music.

Mahalo!!

Please help JohnFahey.com with a little cash

If you're like me you hit the internet when you need some info.  If you Google Fahey you're going to end up on JohnFahey.com sooner than later.  The site is packed with info. It's a treasure. Thing is, JohnFahey.com is a hosted site, it's not a free blog like mine, it costs some money. The other day the site went down for a day and you know that can get a few people panicked.

And who the heck runs this site? Well, Melissa Stephenson, that's who.  She bought the domain in 1995 and in 1999 arranged to include the impressive International Fahey Committee content as it was developed.

Melissa has been the official webmaster all along.  The site recently incurred an unexpected $160 maintenance expense and I think she would certainly appreciate a couple bucks for the John Fahey cause. We are looking to raise a mere $160 here folks. Also, if in the event donations surpass the $160 mark Melissa will return the money, most recent donation first and then backwards from there, and we will take down the donation link.

Malcolm Kirton (IFC member!) has plans to redesign the site in the next year or so and donors will have their names listed on a sponsors page!

So please consider clicking the button and contributing anything, no amount is too small! You don't have to have a PayPal account to give. The PayPal link goes directly to Melissa.


AND WE'RE DONE! 
FASTEST FUND RAISER EVER! 
YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE, THANK YOU!!!!

Thanks,
Scott
