Hey Momma Where Are You Going?
Wonderful track and beautifully done. Captures that vibrant raw creative energy that exemplifies this style. Timeless and hugely enjoyable. Great job. FC
A very pleasant listen, I've always had a deep appreciation for these instruments and this style...your vocals are icing on the cake! Thanks for the detailed artist's comments, that was an interesting read and most certainly sheds light on you and what you're doing here. Bravo! And a belated "thumbs up"...glad I made it by, and thanks for steering me here.
Very exciting style. All natural.. like a live band in the hills of Kentucky. Superb job Terry.
This track takes me back to when I was a youngen.. are the farm waiting for the civil war to end... OK I am not that old but the song is timeless.. it could have come out anytime in the last 200 years and still fit in somewhere... great playing on this track as well.. good job.
Like this track the best makes me feel good, Rated
Wow what a talented musician I wouldn't know where to start with a dulcimer or the congas! Dig the hillbilly vibe, very Deliverance. Ace.
Love Wednesday x

Reminds me of one of my fav bands. Kaleidoscope. The american 60s band,not the brits..Diggin this a lot..Nice work
WOW terry what a great track. It was an honour to be involved in your project. This is full of life and a real joy.
This is true uplugged talent!! I have no experience in this genre and hence cant offer constructive or technical crits. However what I can say is, I enjoyed the story you told in the track and you told said story with excellence!! Superb songwriting and performance!!
Take care bud,
Hi Terry. After hearing I'm The Daddy With The Superman Cape I have not just been an admirer of your music but I have also become a big liker of your attitude and approach to your songs. I can really imagine the ladies going absolutely wild for this!!! Im my opinion you are definitely one of the iconiuc artists on this site. Back to the song this is the one of the perfect ones for you to perform live. Like this alot. Also well done on No.5 this week. PJ
I love it, folk me up for sure.

Digging your choice of instruments for this track.Got my foot tapping from the start.It creates great imagery ...everyone out in the sun doing country dancing.A real treat to hear a happy folk song.Rated, Paul.
Just one terrific song Terry. Dig everything about it.........my favorite of yours...
AWESOME TRACK TERRY!!! This is so good! I love all of the sounds on this riding along with your voices! LMAO!!! The words are cool, the music is great, the vibe is excellent, and your artist comment was very cool. 100% entertainment! AWESOME!!!!!
What a wonderful song! superb singing and guitar work, Folk/Medieval feeling and great percussion! Well done Terry, this is better than some of Led Zepp's stuff.
Great Bass work too!
This has a live feel to it, i see you are credited with all instruments so that's clever production, i get a visual sense of musicians playing as i'm listening. It is a great song. I read with interest your artist comments,so i wish you continued success with that project. Nice work Terry, Gibbo
I feel a resurgence of real music is in the air. More! More! I hate to add production comments but honestly, the vocals could come up a bit, don't be shy. Great tune. fumzup
This is splendid Sire! Has me tappin' me little toes like Billy- o. It oozes pleasure and the joy of making music. The arrangement is great as is the production it reminds me,(in a good way) of Daniel Lanois' work on 'Arcadie'.
Loved the notes too.. keep up the good work, this should be what music is about, not chasing lucre and disappearing up one's own hindquarters. You're an example to us all.
Great track Terry, one I could listen to over and over, very catchy tune. Thumbs
Pure class from the Earl of Wigmore. A brilliant slice of American folk music incorporating European, white American, and African American musical traditions(to these ears anyway). The melody and the simplicity of the lyrics give this a sing a long quality that is extremely infectious but its the sound of the track that is the highlight for me. The blend of instruments and the feel they create is just fracking outstanding. I have heard many great songs from you but this tops the lot.. Hope you are feeling proud of yourself. Nominated
Terry, you always amaze. This has authentic written all over it. Love the dulcimer and the arrangement in this uncluttered stride to perfection. Your vocals are spot on for this genre. You just pick up what ever you're in the mood for and make it work. A sign of a true musician and innovator. This is pure silk.
Think I will be humming this melody in my mind for a while! The real deal right here... and just as catchy of a song, as catchy can be. I adore this tune~ very nicely done!! =Bravo= :)

Exploring various styles and topics. Variety is the spice of life.
Joined this community of artists in July of 2011, and quickly observed the community-spirit of artists who take the time to listen to other artists' work and comment meaningfully and positively. The vibe is one of encouragement and helping out.
This was quickly expressed more tangibly in the number of collaborations that were being uploaded and that caught my attention. People were willing to offer skills and abilities, knowledge and understanding, and check their egos at the door and be willing to engage the difficult task of trying to work together for a common good - a better track. THIS has been an education for me and the learning that occurs as a result of working together is extraordinary.
Special mentions to those who have included me in their work, and they in mine: James Bell - not only got the ball rolling but is a kindred spirit; Dachleigh Music (Adam) - who used my cello lines in a some electronic music; Deggsy Music and DawnSinclair - the two are not always inseparable but they work so well together (that RnB will be a highlight!); Deon - we didn't do a lot together, but the journey was expansive; Rich Lodato, whose voice and guitar invites the cello to weave a melody too; AmorfoxiZ (Alfonso,) more cello; Left Ear Bleed (Jeff)...always good to help younger artists; Liquid (Anthony Gee) the budding rock keyboardist ;) and Michael Ritchie - consummate riff-meister and gentle spirit...thanks to one and all for including me in their journeys! FUN!...gotta be more fun than work or it isn't fun any more ;) Special mention to TomC in PC FL, for sharing his journey and struggles. Hang in there Tom!
Also a note of GRATITUDE...that is the theme for my class of students. A number of artists from mp3u have contributed messages addressed to my class, and some have written wonderful tracks to help us find a calm and gentle start to our days of turbulence. Dan Michaelson, Peter Vines...great ambient tracks and such wonderful messages - you two were the first off the mark and set the bar very high for how to approach a class that you didn't really know; Will Riding...the Sleeping Giants was an awesome introduction to story-telling through music; Erik Jurado...straight from you heart to right where my kids are...amazing intuition; Kelly Mitchell...your artist comment narrative was inspirational on over-coming obstacles; Mike Ritchie - one boy has become filled with hope because of a specific word of encouragement...how incredibly awesome! ; Deon -many positive messages and ideas about life and existence, as well as ways to find calm in the midst of Life - looking forward tomore of your special way of looking at life; Rich - sent along some A/V material...journey into visual art...chalked full of encouraging words... some fine vocal/visual/philosphical chicken soup for the teen-aged soul, I think; Liquid (Anthony Gee), who has created some fine music for the class and sent a wonderful interview for the class to listen to. We are also enjoying some wonderful orchestral arrangements from AndyF (Andrew Foyston), and a superbly written note to the students.
In 2013 we heard from KtA (Marty Etheridge) - the students love the DnB stuff; ATuesdayParadox (Kevin Gibbons) - a very encouraging message and pics pf Wales; Lazy Jane (Will Walton) sent along well-wishes from Georgia, DNA Codex (Andrew Shields)- not only introduced us to Surrealism, he showed us how to paint in a surealistic style with some extraordinary youtube clips with his wonderful ambient/electronica in the background; Essence - little did I know that in trying to find female artists to represent more gender equity, you would step in and tell a heart-changing story that resonated in all of us, and in one young woman in particular - you cast the seeds and often never know what good will result, so we trust and carry on; Keith Allen and Wednesday Wilson are also going to contribute their own stories and words of encouragement. In all of these personal touches and positive interactions there will be Wellness!

Norman Acoustic, Epiphone SG Double Neck Electric, Ibanez Roadstar II, Cello, Ensoniq EPS, Korg M1Rex, PC, M- audio 410, Cakewalk X1 Studio, Sony MDMX-4, Aiwa powered speakers, Radio Shack consumer headphones, AKG C1000S mic and Rode NT1A - bottom-line…it may be old(er) gear for the most part, but like myself, all the parts work (at the moment) ;)
**My creative space -a.k.a. "hobbit hole studio" - is a cinder block fruit cellar, 6x9, with a 6in poured concrete slab ceiling…nice reflective surfaces for some interesting vocals if they are not tamed..the furnace is old and loud and is adjacent, and the main waste pipe from the second floor passes through the “studio” so I have to record before the household awakes or after they are asleep because a single toilet flush can “wh- o-o-o-s-s-h-h-“ through a track like a roar of a jet engine, giving new meaning to the phrase I have come to accept as part of my Buddhist experience - “Flushed Away!”
