TRANSCRIPTIONS
CD: FIRE & GRACE, Track 1
CALLIOPE MEETS FRANK: CALLIOPE HOUSE/ MACARTHUR ROAD/FRANKS
REEL (Dave Richardson/Dave Richardson/John McCusker):
CALLIOPE HOUSE: The Pittsburgh Folk Music Society originated at the historic Northside home of
bagpipe instructor George Balderose, who called his home Calliope House. In 1984, Dave Richardson of
the Boys of the Lough composed a jig in E major which he named "Calliope House" in honor of this
house and the good times he had there while performing in Pittsburgh with the Boys of the Lough.
MACARTHUR ROAD: Dave Richardson wrote this in honor of Vermont singer and song collector
Margaret MacArthur, whose family lives on MacArthur Road in Marlboro, Vermont. Margaret passed
away in 2006 and Vermont Folklife Center published an article dedicated to her life and work in
Vermonts Songcatcher: A Lifetime of Singing and Saving Near-Forgotten Tunes.
FRANKS REEL: was written by John McCusker for his friend Francis MacDonald, who he played with
in his early musical career in a band called 'Parcel of Rogues'.
ABF: Three magnificent modern tunes here written by Dave Richardson and John McCusker. In Calliope
House its fun to play with across-the-beat slurs especially slurring beats 3-4 and 6-1. We use a
rhythmic motif derived from MacArthur Road as connective tissue to expand the medley and to tie the
two reels together. As in the jig, slurring across the beat and across the bar line creates fun and variety and
helps the forward movement of the reels. The bowed triplet is also in evidence here and is a fingerprint of
Scottish and Irish fiddle music. Feel free to insert bowed triplets in places to inject energy into the
melody, especially in the reels.
NMH: I use a combination of chop and shuffle bow patterns here, for both the jig and the two reels (see
introductory notes (free download) for a note on how to chop). There is a lot of subtlety in the amount of
bow pressure, ghost notes, etc. within these patterns that simply cannot be conveyed with written
musicto get an idea of how to incorporate all of these into your chop, listen to the recording. Try
varying your contact point of the bow on the string and keep your right arm subdividing for you by
continuing a constant back & forth 8th note motion. I have notated ghost notes here with rests rather than
with actual notes. The melody for Franks Reel is quite a challenging one for the cello when finding
fingerings, go for the least amount of shifting possible (this usually entails using fingerings that go across
the fingerboard rather than up & down it, the use of harmonics, and using open strings these help retain
the flavor of the fiddle sound).
