Here and There
ORDERING INFORMATION BELOW
LIST OF TRACKS: (Audio samples available through CDBaby - see below)
Here and There – Wearne
The theme for the CD, It seems. I’d like to meet the man who said we can’t be in two places at once. I do that regularly.
The Sunset Bar – Wearne
When I’m there, I want to be here, and Vice Versa. That’s what closing eyes is for.
My time at the Sunset Bar was part of my experience (of which I cherish every moment ) at Lowender Peran 06
Home for Flora – Harry (Safari) Glasson
Harry gave me permission to record this. It comes very close to describing my family. We’re from Wendron, for example.
The Cornish Customs Man – Wearne (Tune – Alan Jewell)
A poem based on a true incident. I read it in a book by Baring-Gould, and I don’t suppose he lied. Alan Jewell supplied the tune.
You’re Cornish! – Wearne
A rare (for me) Kids’ Song. I’m accused of being gloomy about the future of the Cornish in America. Maybe I’m more hopeful than I let on.
A Curious Newlyn Disturbance – Wearne
Another poem (this time sung) about a true incident, from a newspaper story sent to me by Merv Davey.
We Got a Thing Goin’ On – Wearne
(Bass – Darryl Jones. Lead guitar – Robert Rose. Drums – Gary Maier)
I’m from Chicago, and if you’re from Chicago you’ve got to play the blues. I did the Harp on this one (“Harmonica” for you squares) and on the others as well.
There’s Money to be Made – Wearne
About where I’m from, and probably a lot of other places. Why does a family of 4 need 6 bathrooms, anyway?
There is probably some relevance here to the Cornish housing crisis as well.
Where’s Cousin Jack? – Wearne
This one is a bit melancholy, about the future or lack of it for Cornish America.
Pleasant and Delightful – Trad.
A wonderful old song I heard on a CD called “Boscastle Bow-Wow” from Folktrax.
Lost in Lanner – Wearne
Another true story, starring me as the hapless tourist, and a fine Cornish fellow as my rescuer. He’s very shy, so I won’t say his name.
Song for Crofty – Roger Bryant
Roger Bryant’s deathless hymn to the miners and what Cornwall’s lost. But maybe it’s not the last word after all.
I’ll be Seeing You – Wearne
We’ve all lost someone who has left a larger hole in our life than we could have imagined. Save me a seat, buddy.
