Music

IMG_3796-700pxThe purpose of this page (initially, at least) is to host a collection of my tunes (that’s right, ones I’ve composed), video from performances with various bands, and videos that people have come to expect I’ll will keep on this website.

Here’s something someone once said about me…

Multi-instrumentalist Graham Lindsey was bitten by the Celtic-music bug in the mid-2000s and has yet to recover. A percussionist since he was old enough to hit things, Graham took up wind instruments at age seven and then piano (which he promptly forgot), and percussion in school—a lifelong passion that continues to burn brightly.

Today, Graham is a talented and sought-after accompanist who performs in a number of Celtic groups and local concert bands. He regularly plays traditional sessions across the country and plays in a number of Celtic, folk and roots bands. In his spare time, Graham is on the board of the Canadian Folk Music Awards and is involved in this country’s wider folk-music community. Sharing music, though, remains his greatest joy—as evidenced by the “idiot’s grin” he often sports while playing.

 

  • Grit’s Jig

    Recorded 11 Feb 2015 with Ellen Gibling
    Written by Graham Lindsey

    This is the first tune of mine that I’d played in public – now named for Grit Laskin, maker of fine stringed instruments, and without which I wouldn’t have written any tunes at all. Thanks, Grit!

    Harp accompaniment by Ellen Gibling, a harpist working in Halifax.

  • The Sarah Burnell Band – Trip To Pakistan

    Trip To Pakistan, played here by The Sarah Burnell Band, was the single most cited YouTube video that I’ve been in – I’m not sure that qualifies it as having gone viral, but it’s popular! The tune “Trip to Pakistan” was written by Niall Kenny.
