Father and Son Reunion CD cover

Three American ukulele artists returned the ukulele to its ancestrl home of Madeira Island, Portugal, in 1998.

Alfredo Canopin, Fred Fallin and Dan Scanlan taught several Madeiran folk musicians to play the instrument.

They performed two shows together in Madeira and one at the World's Fair in Lisbon.

This is their radio performance in Funchal, Madeira, featuring American and Madeiran tunes.

An historic treasure.

Father and Son Reunion: The Braguinha Meets the Ukulele




Ah, Rajčo CD cover

Ah, Rajčo CD back

The rajão is one of the two parents of the ukulele. The "my dog has fleas" tuning came from four of the rajão's five strings.

The ukulele got its size from the braguinha. This album demonstrates the depth of sound that can be obtained when an instrument has two reentrant strings.

Ah, Rajão!

Songs From the Vietnam War Era.

LaSalle University established a collection within its main library of artistic and cultural responses to the Vietnam War. I was asked to contribute any songs I had written and performed during that era. This CD is my contribution and it includes the first non-collegiate song I wrote, Marshlands Void of Green, as well as several others, some on guitar, including The Boy From the Middle Class Ghetto. CD in a paper envelope. $12.00 US postpaid.

Songs From the Vietnam War Era.
