I know they both love folk music, in fact it was mainly those two that got me into it and introduced me to ceilidhs, so I decided to send them a song. While cleaning my desk I found a bit of simple sheet music entitled 'The Newlyweds Waltz'. How perfect!
I recorded it on my Tin Whistle, but felt like it needed some backing. The easiest thing to do was hum... and then I started wondering how many layers of backing I could put on this thing! In the end I sung three harmonising tracks and layered them up. And here it is!
I'm aware the speed isn't consistent, and the next time I do this I'll have a metronome playing through my headphones to keep me steady, but otherwise I think it's pretty good! I burned it to disc, added a label and fancy paper envelope, and sent it off to join the book.
