White Winter Hymnal

in music •  last month

Fleet Foxes hold a special place in my heart. I first fell in love with them on a drive back from playing a wake with a band I play with (The Button Collective) is was such a happy sad celebration of a folk music lover and filled my heart so completely. I cried all the way home listening and singing to their first two albums.

You have a very beautiful voice and much talent to be able to both sing and play the flute. Are you playing the guitar tracks as well?

The song is very emotional. It has a happy but somber tone to it. I think it's great! I'm sure it's hard to forget a song like this given the circumstances when you first heard it.

Fantastic cover. Thanks so much for sharing!

·

They're actually ukulele tracks! :)

I'm glad you enjoyed it so much!

Hi @theemeraldruby, you have a very beautiful voice. Your voice touched me, and you express the feeling via the song very well. And I like the flute. It compliment the song nicely.

You recorded in a studio? I notice you used the mike similar as studio mike:)

·

Hey hey! So glad you enjoyed it!! I actually recorded it at home with my own equiptment (I invested in a ludicrously expensive mic a few years ago!)

What a beautiful song. You are such a great singer and flute player. I can imagine that you cried all the way home while listening to this music. It's so delicate, soft and simply beautiful.

Did you record all the voices yourself? And from which country is this folk music? It's interesting that folk music can be so emotional. In Slovakia is very cheerful, fast and makes you want to dance :)

Thank you for sharing! It was a lovely experience.

Glad you enjoyed it :)

From my understanding this is a modern american folk tune written by the fleet foxes. It certainly has that "old world" kid of vibe though.

What beautiful voices accompanied by that transverse flute.

Where is folk music from?

I like very much the work of harmony and second voices.

Thank you for sharing.

greetings, peace and love

Thankyou :) This piece is actually american from my research!

Beautifully performed, sounds like a simple folk music and song but there is a warmth that is spread once you listen to it. Love the velvet tone of your voice and your play Flute, I believe it is, sorry if I am wrong, I am not an expert in musical instrument although I love to listen and Flute is one of my favorite because of "Lord of the Dance" Musical. Thank you for sharing this beautiful music :)

Hmm....added you to my "discovered" playlist :) I enjoyed it 100%. Bit too sad for me but yeah whatever, sounds good! Also, I have to confess that I totally love short hair on girls and my last 2 GFs were both short-haired. And I've just fallen in platonic love with your hair haha :D

My sis @zzuzza used to play flute when she was younger. Our neighbors once told us they wait till she starts practicing every evening as they can hear it and totally enjoy it. I'd be also waiting for you to start practicing :D Gr8 skillz!

Wow your voice is very beautiful and warm .. And the performance in general was excellent, very emotional and sentimental, your voice transmits a lot, you see that you feel what you sing .. BEAUTIFUL .. Also the part of the flute was selestial , I loved. Congratulations for your first curie vote, A big hug @theemeraldruby !!

Howdy from Texas theemeraldruby! well this was such a wonderful song and sound, very unique, I loved it. Is this an Australian folk song?
The flute was amazing too, you are so gifted! Congratulations on a very well deserved curie.
