Blogathon songathon: Glory Hallelujah

I’m afraid that I’m going to have to tap out at this point, Cromrades. The combination of 2 back-to-back shows with the band followed by 6 hours of learning and recording has completely flayed the fingertips of my left hand, and the remnants of my voice to boot. If I haven’t done your request, fear not: SSA Week is not over. I will keep adding videos as the week progresses. To be completely honest, I did not expect this kind of response, so I have to thank all of you for digging into your pockets the way you did.

I will leave you with this fantastic secular anthem, requested by Danny White:

Blogathon songathon: Somebody Will

This next request comes from reader Julia (who is on Twitter at @djhaplo) who asked me to play a song originally performed by her group Sassafrass. It’s a rather moving ballad about how we are all, in our own way, contributing to humanity’s ascension to something greater. This one was a particular challenge for me, simply because I was totally unfamiliar with the work beforehand and didn’t have a studio version to work from. Still, I think I managed to pull it off (with thanks to Julia for sending me the sheet music).
