Tuesday folks and for our merry little band of ladies and lads, that means sharing tunes, good vibes and engagement. As another week disappears in the rearview mirror, we have loads of engagement and tunes flying around on Three Tune Tuesday and sure isn't that bloody fantastic! I hope you're ready to share three tunes from wherever you find yourself on this magical spinning lump of rock that we all call home.
Tuesday is here again, which can only mean one thing, another three tunes from me and hopefully from lots of you good folks too. How are all of you music loving rockers from Kilrush to Kenya doing on this fine evening? Sure, isn't great to be alive all the same.
It's a time of the week when lovers of music, tunes and craic bring their blockchain community three of their finest and brightest tunes to share and celebrate, so let's roll on and let the tunes flow free.
This is my 69th week waxing lyrical for Three Tune Tuesday - 69 weeks, holy shitballs batman. It started off with me just sharing tunes into what seemed like a void, but little by little others joined and now I'm thrilled that we have a little corner of Hive where we come and share our tunes every Tuesday, and long may it continue. I almost stopped posting the songs and thoughts a few times, but I stuck with it and now interestingly it is my favorite thing about Hive. I love music and now I have a network of folks around the world who love music too and we share our tunes and catch up with each others tunes and discuss them each week. We get Pop, Metal, Rock, Gospel, Folk, Jazz, Rap, Hip-Hop, Trip-Hop, Reggae, Bippy bappidy Flange Hop. Ok I made that one up, but you get the idea, we are all learning about new artists, bands, back stories and sure isn't it just mighty!
Something that excites me the most is that we even get musicians sharing their covers of famous songs and even their own songs from time to time here on #ThreeTuneTuesday, which is a real favorite of mine, as that takes talent, time and dedication.
We are adding New posters and retaining our core of regulars here on #TTT which is fantastic. Let's keep it growing and that playlist that @blackdaisyft is updating (when she gets time) has ripped past the 600 mark that I mentioned before and at the last count was at an mightily impressive 639 unique tunes and trucking steadily towards 700. Thank you for doing that by the way daisy, when you do find time, as I like throwing on the playlist from time to time reminding myself of all of the sweet tunes that have been shared down through the months - Good on you.
Weekly, I try to find two or three hours to listen to all of the fantastic music shared from like-minded folk from around the globe and interact with their posts. This has lead me to genres I don't know well and to some amazing new bands and artists and has even introduced me to some musical instruments I did not know existed. It also allows me to upvote smaller accounts and fins some really interesting people from all over the world, which is heartening.
I hope you enjoy the tunes - be sure to tell me all about it in the comments below and above all else, please enjoy the rest of your Tuesday - smile at a stranger, rub a dog, be a nice human to someone who was not expecting it - peace out.
For those unfamiliar with TTT or Three Tune Tuesday....
The jist is as follows
Every Tuesday I'm going to share 3 songs which I like to listen to and I invite your feedback in the comments below. Better still, why not have a blast of your own Three Tune Tuesday and mention me in the post and I'll come and find the post and upvote it. If you could also use #threetunetuesday tag that would be great, as that is what I use when sifting through all the entries every Wednesday. It'll be a sweet way for us all to discover new music. You'll also be in with a chance of winning the prize - more on that later.
Here are my week sixty nine recommendations for Three Tune Tuesday
** Drum roll please.....**
ULTAN CONLON & SABRINA DINAN - 'The River Flows & The Woods Creep'
Last week I brought you guys a little known Irish musician Albert Niland, who only @blanchy had heard of, being a fellow Irishman helped of course. The reaction to Albert's three songs was fantastic, so I thought why not go with another obscure Irish artist, so this week I am bringing you another singer song writer (we have a lot of these in Ireland!) and this time it is a lady, and her name is Sabrina Dinan. I was lucky enough to meet Sabrina a couple of times and she is an absolute sweetheart, the first time she was supporting Luka Bloom in Melbourne (which must be 15 years ago) and the second time she was playing Galway's iconic music venue The Roisin Dubh
She was an absolute sweetheart both times and I am not sure if she is even still making music or not, but let me share three of her tunes with you, we'll get started with this song that she sings with Ultan Conlon.
Sabrina Dinan - Unknown
This one for me shows how good Sabrina is. It is recorded in a bar where people are openly talking as she plays, and is recorded on a crap phone - you can barely make her out on the stage for goodness sake, but do you know what, it doesn't really matter, as she still sounds fantastic. Well done Sabrina - I hope that you are still making music wherever you are. You definitely deserve to be playing better venues than downstairs in what was once the Cellar bar in Galway.
Sabrina Dinan - John Martyn's 'Certain Surprise'
I'll sign off with this cover that she does of a John Martyn song. Do you know who John Martyn is? If not, go and check out his album Solid Air - you're welcome 😊
I was actually disappointed that I couldn't find a decent version of her song Imaginary Panic Attacks from her first EP What The Devil's Dealt which is my favourite song of hers, I have it somewhere buried in the shed with my old CD collection - I bought it in Melbourne when I went to see her and I am so glad that I did, as you can't buy it anymore.
ThreeTune Spotify Playlist
Our good friend and regular Three Tune Tuesday poster @blackdaisyft has added some of the ThreeTuneTuesday songs to a Spotify playlist over the months. You can check them out here:
I'll pick the three songs I enjoyed the most each week as the winner and transfer 1 share of HBI to the winner when this post pays out 7 days from now.
Three Tune Tuesday Sponsors
My old pal and brother from another mother @blanchy has also committed a share of HBI each week and so have two other Three Tune legends @blackdaisyft and @tengolotodo and just this week another friend @hannes-stoffel has kindly offered to sponsor the winner as well, so now the winner will receive five shares of HBI, not too shaby at all eh..
Thanks a million to our sponsors above.
Sin é, That's all folks, thanks for stopping by.
That's it for another week. Those are your three songs for week sixty nine. Let me know what you think - good, bad or indifferent? Did you like them all or just one or two?
Also, as I said before, I love getting good steers for new tunes, so please tell me about the latest and greatest from your playlist below and I'll be sure to check em out.
The YouTube videos shared are not owned by me and I am simply sharing great music with the community here on Hive
