Original Music from Brian Dyer Stewart #66

Dear family, friends, and fellow travelers,

   As promised, here is last week's instrumental with its lyrics, recorded just now in Clinton, NY - By River's Shore.   Pammy and I live on seventeen acres along the Harrington River.  The river is tidal where we are, with tidal swings of nearly fifteen feet, depending on the moon.  We look across what we can the Marsh hill, old pasture that goes down to salt marsh flats that stretch out to the main river, filling on the big tides of the month and emptying to the community of plants that love the rise and fall of the rich salty waters.  Pammy and I often walk down to the marsh after dinner when the sun is low and everything is lit in golds and reds and sky and marsh and river seem to stretch forever.  Such wonders...

   My best to each,



I'm sending you a monthly offering from original music I've been writing over many years. I've been so bold as to add your email to my newsletter list.  You can unsubscribe at any time (link at the bottom of the email).

Many songs are recorded solo, some are from different musical twinings from over the years - all are original tunes, with some occasional collaborations.

   Play your favorites!

    I've also added a Favorites feature so that, as the playlists grow, you can mark those songs you particularly like and just listen to those, again from using the drop down filter at the top of the playlist.  Right now it's a two-step process.  You have to click on the song you want to mark on the playlist and then go to the side bar (bottom on phone) and click the gray heart so select; click again to deselect. 

    On the technical side, the favorites function relies on you not clearing your cookies, often the default setting. Favorites will be lost if cookies are cleared. I hope to add a login feature that would allow you to keep your selections without cookies.

    Finally, realizing that many people no longer have a CD player, Leonore and I made our three albums available for free here on the site in playlists.  There's a tab, Albums, on the top menu.   Select the album you want to hear from the dropdown and enjoy.  Songs are free to download as well.  We will make some CDs for those who may want that medium - if that is your desire, feel free to contact me.
