This waltz was written by Hawaii's last reigning monarch, Queen Lili'uokalani.

I play the accompaniment on a Tahitian ukulele and piano accordion. The melody is played on a 64 button Wheatstone English concertina and pennywhistle..

 In this song a young Hawaiian dreams he is traveling around the world in a hot-air balloon, visiting exotic places and riding "strange" animals.
The melody and arrangement are my own. The lyrics are from a traditional Hawaiian song called "Palisa." You can read the original lyrics and translation
at: http://www.huapala.org/Palisa.html

 An Irish reel played on Sweetheart Birch-laminate pennywhistle in D, 4 string tenor ukulele, 8 string Tahitian ukulele. This is the unedited version.

This was recorded using a PS-4 Palmtop recorder made by Zoom.

 Here's an edited version of Duffy the Dancer. I used Cakewalk to edit out some of the nastier notes, and beef up the signal. I also added some effects, EQ, and an ending.
8)   Whistle Duet  One Man Band 1:27 - 1.3MB
 Aldon Sanders  World/ Folk
Add to personal playlist Play lo-fi Play hi-fi Download mp3
 This tune is from "The Whistler's Pocket Companion." (In the book its title is "Duet.")

It's a short but elegant classical-flavored tune with twiddly bits thrown in by me.

I'm playing a Burke Composite Pro Session whistle in D on both parts. No editing or effects added other than a signal boost.
9)   The Butcher's March  One Man Band 1:27 - 1.3MB
 Aldon Sanders  World/ Folk
Add to personal playlist Play lo-fi Play hi-fi Download mp3
 Here's an Irish tune played on a $10 Vietnamese bamboo whistle I just made friends with. This tune shows off this whistle's attributes.

I play through the tune twice. First at a jaunty pace, then more laid-back.
10)   The Butterfly  One Man Band 1:59 - 1.8MB

Add to personal playlist Play lo-fi Play hi-fi Download mp3
 July 6, 2006. I finally got my Casey Burns Folk Flute in the mail yesterday and decided it was time to do some more recording.

Here's a traditional Irish tune played on my new Folk Flute. The other instruments are an 8 string Kamaka ukulele (also a recent addition to the family), a Burke composite whistle in D, and an Appalachian Fiddle from Steve Perry of Gianna Violins.

This is the debut of my fiddle playing (I've been at it a little over 2 years) and the first chance I've had to play a wooden flute that doesn't cramp my right hand.

It was recorded in my living room this afternoon (a one-man Irish/Hawaiian session) using the Zoom PS-4.

These are all first takes.

Enjoy!
