Here's a recording of my workshop arrangement of Lord of the Dance (Simple Gifts).

I'm on the left and my part is the most tricky. It is all in campanella voicing, which is why I am not moving very much. The guy on the right is doing the easy stuff.

I am so disappointed - I was expecting you to be dancing in tights and a muscle shirt a la Michael Flatley...wait...I think this way is better. LOL

Great job Ken, as always.

Haha. The thought of me in tights makes me shudder, John.

LOL, I could be wrong but maybe you do have an identical twin that plays just as brilliant as you do.

Your twin looks just like you. I can't tell you apart. Maybe you should dress differently.

It was very beautiful.

The first of your tabs I sought out, and when I can play it that good, I will post a video.
Until then this made me smile from ear to ear, and I really love playing it (even though I do a lousy job)

That was really neat. Now if only I could retire so I would have time to play with technology like that. Sigh....someday.....

No, he's an identical stranger.

But we both have such good taste in clothes.

Thanks TCK. The version on my website is actually harder to play than this version. The campanella voicing means that you don't have to move about so much.

Thanks. I normally like to keep my videos simple, just me and a uke. But this seemed like a fun idea.

It was fun to do and I had a reason. I wanted to show what was being played in each part.

But I am certainly not retired. All the work I do is connected with ukuleles though. I am blessed.
