weddin' music
There's gotta be music from the Canadian band Great Big Sea. I just found one of their concerts on the Trio network, and they're awesome. They're from Newfoundland, and they did some of the music on the movie The Shipping News, which I loved. They even cover "It's The End of The World (As We Know It)" by R.E.M. -- I'm half tempted to use that as a recessional... but I'm not sure everyone will get the joke. No worries.

But I gotta have their music.

If you aren't going to see the Carolingian performance of King Lear on Saturday (plug, plug), GBS is playing at Avalon in Boston...

Yeah, I know, it doesn't answer the question :)

Ooh. Maybe... it's just that I'm in Mason till Tuesday, minding Mistress Eleanor's dogs, and they have a crate limit of 6 hours. That, and Wolfie and I are both sick.

Thanks, though, that would be awesome! (That *or* Lear!)

GBS

Hi Diane,
(I know you from the FiberLoft)
YES gonna go see "__eat Big Sea" this Sat! They are great. I found them a few yrs back while on vacation in PEI. Had to travel back to Canada every summer to buy each new cd (before they started releasing them in US). Have been lucky enough to see them twice. Fun, fun music and they put on a great show. You could recessional to "Mari Mac" or "RunAway"? Had to go put on their music... feeling happy now :)

You don't know me, but I'm a SCAdian from Northshield who found you by way of Advanced_Knit, and discovered that we've got similar opinions about authenticity, knitting and dislike of synthetic yarns, so I stop back occasionally.

There's lots of GBS music, easily available through Amazon/CDNOW and various other outlets. I'm pretty sure I've seen their discs in Best Buy and similar. If you can't find them under pop/rock, check under folk. They're upbeat enough that it's certainly not a stretch to use them as wedding music. They also do some very pretty ballads. I'd recommend starting with Turn, but that may just be because that's what I got first.

When my stepson was planning to marry a hopeless woman he "met at the mall", I told him to walk in to "Bad to the Bone" and recess out to "Highway to Hell"

It would have been so true...

But, he woke up, went into the Navy, and met a wonderful and intelligent Japanese girl who he managed to convince to marry him. Last I heard, it was working out well.

Well, the resason why "It's The End of The
> World (As We Know It)" is appropriate for us is that once we have joined forces, we're gonna take over the world... or at least groom our children to do so.

Mua. Ha. Ha. :-D

Heh, I'm a little late to this LJ party. Hello! :)

I have all seven CDs, so if you're looking to peruse the collection still, I'd be willing to lend them over (one or as many as you wanted).

Don't know if you'll see the comment to this month-old post, but it's worth a shot!

Allow me to give you a big wet kiss, right in the middle of your forehead!

(I get all my comments emailed to me; it's an LJ feature.)

I would love to give them a listen, and perhaps burn a track or two for the wedding? The only problem is, I don't know where you are. I'm in Lawrence.

I'm down in Framingham. Pike Exit 13, roughly.

I would be happy to part with them for a little while if you wanted to give them a spin. I have it all on my PC and iPod, anyway. ;)

Interestingly enough, I'm going to be in Westborough Sunday afternoon. Will you be around? I can drop Wolfie off at equestrian practice and meet you somewhere, or we can all get together for a bite after (someplace VERY casual, as Wolfie won't be able to change more than his sweatshirt and shoes after riding).

That could work. Are you guys into subs at all? There's a Quizno's I usually frequent on Rte 9 in Southboro, just next to Rte 85. If that doesn't work for you, I'm open to other suggestions. :)

How about 5pm? (Sorry it took me so long to respond; I had to check with Wolfie first.)
frostyw From: frostyw Date: April 23rd, 2004 11:58 am (UTC) (base camp)
5PM Sunday? That ought to work. Please drop me a line at my livejournal e-mail address (frostyw@livejournal.com, goes to my hotmail account right now) so I can pass along my cell phone number in case plans get sticky at the last minute.
