Moving west and south we enter Connecticut, a state I have driven through often on my way to Boston and beyond. The state song is Yankee Doodle Dandy, which I did not know and did not see coming, although I know the song. It was adopted as the state song in 1978.Of course there is Connecticut with Bing Crosby, Judy Garland and Joseph Lilley.Next up is Kristen Graves and The Connecticut Song which won her the position of the official Connecticut State Troubador.Daniel Boucher is a dynamic young fiddler born and raised in the French Canadian community in Bristol, Ct. Learning tunes and styles from family and friends in Connecticut and Quebec, Daniel plays across New England with many artists including Josee Vachon and the Beaudoin Family. Daniel revitalized the Franco-American music scene in central Connecticut with his bi-weekly gathering called Jam Francais, and he organizes hugely popular soirees and events with French music and food. This is a long video just over and hour and ten minutes. Hope you enjoy.Have a wonderful day.
Not sure what we will find for Rhode Island, which is not really an Island.The Rhode Island State Song adopted in 1996 "RHODE ISLAND’s IT FOR ME" Words by Charlie Hull Music by Maria Day Arranged by Kathryn ChesterI like this video about Providence, RI.Here is Rhode Island is famous for you by Blossom DearieHere is Rhode Island by The Front Bottoms, warning there are some bad words in this song if you get easily offended.Have a wonderful day. An interesting mix of music from Rhode Island. I find it interesting to see what states are easy to find music for and which are not.
As we head south, we enter Massachusetts, home to Barbara Todaro who follows these posts and was probably wondering where it was yesterday.Here is the State Song All Hail to Massachusetts. Words and music by Athur J Marsh and made the official song September 3 1966.In 1981 the state amended the act to add Massachusetts music and words by Arlo Guthrie as the state's official folk song.Now, I discovered this song Massachusetts by Ylvis which seems a fun song.And of course we cannot forget the song by the Bee Gees, Massachusetts. Have a good day.
There are many sites where you can get free photos to use and each site often has angles where you can sign up for subscriptions to use photos which you need to pay for as well.I just discovered www.Wunderstock.com, you can contribute as well as use photos. I just downloaded this example.Looks like a cross between concrete and shipping containers. Lots of choices of photos and I am sure it will grow as time passes.
Today as we head South once more, towards some warmer weather, we enter the territory of Scott Godzyk and start off with Old New Hamphsire adopted in 1949lyrics by Dr. John F Holmes and music by Maurice Hoffman, this version sung by Rick Pickren.Andrew Polakow has this original song New Hampshire, I like the scenery in this version.This song New Hampshire is by John PerraultAnd we finish up with Town Meeting singing New Hampshire, this will get Will Hamm's feet tapping, if they aren't already. Have a wonderful weekend.
Today we arrive in Maine, home of Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573 and listen to the State Song with the original The State of Maine Song, adopted in 1937 and written by Roger Vinton Snow.I found this long video of the Muddy Marsh Ramblers, folk and bluegrass music.Ghost of Paul Revere recorded this song Ballad of the 20th Maine, a little more folk music.I like this song by Donovan Woods called Portland Maine.And let's finish up with this song Hike to Maine by Alathea.After that, I could be persuaded to take a hike to Maine.
I apologise to those of you who have missed these daily posts, but with the holidays I took some time to focus on family and friends. Now, I am back in the seat and we start today where we left out moving North from New York to Vermont. These Green Mountains is the State song for Vermont. Composed by Diane Martin and arranged by Rita Buglass Gluck, it was made official on may 22, 2000.Coming home to stay remembers and honors those who served in the military from Vermont.Not a lot of choices for songs featuring Vermont, but did come across this Frank Sinatra song moonlight in Vermont.I also cameacross this poem Song of Vermont set to music featuring lovely photos of the state and historic sites.
