Product notities

With an unbridled love for their music, Corvallis, Oregon-based Three Fingered Jack taps into the deep roots of the Celtic world. They are known for driving dance sets punctuated by proud and clear traditional ballads, tightly harmonized waltzes, and the occasional drinking song. Their name pays homage to a Cascades Mountain peak, the power of their land, and the roots the band members set down in Western Oregon. The tunes on this first recording are notably diverse, ranging from the traditional Irish reels and jigs played at dances to original compositions best categorized as 'Celtic BarMitzvah' tunes. An Estonian two-step and a modern Breton Baghad round out the musical journey of 'Bigger Thank You Think,' for, really, where does one tradition end and another begin? Three Fingered Jack is inspired masters of traditional Irish instrumental music, like Kevin Burke, Martin Hayes, and the band Solas. Like Ton Nua down in Eugene, and Circled By Hounds up in Portland, they are part of a new surge of Celtic music in the Northwest. As lead singer, Shari Ame brings to the mix many old English and Scottish ballads, following humbly in the footsteps of Folk Music Revival singers like Maddy Prior, June Tabor, and Martin Carthy. Hers are the songs of the history we all share, tales of common people and of a time when life was local, things changed more slowly and choices were fewer. There is solace to be found in the more raw, simple, and honest emotions of the old stories, and the style of the old songs lends a hand to more modern concerns, as in 'Crow on the Cradle,' where Sydney Carter leads us in a pointed contemplation of nuclear war and when we will finally decide to stop sacrificing our sons. In this place where we live, rich with rain, moss, ferny forests and wild, windy coastline, Three Fingered Jack plays in the dialect of the Oregon rain. Theirs is a music of the love of home, the love of family, of community and of our people, the love of our own particular hillsides and watersheds. Once you feel a thing like that, it's in your marrow, and it sustains you as you walk through your days. If you take an Irish pub session, set it down in an Oregon barn, put on your dancing shoes, and let the rain fall hard on the roof, Three Fingered Jack will be there.
