Pied Pumkin

Pied Pumkin String Ensemble


Pied Pumkin very rare and out-of-print vinyl LP MINT condition (never Played)


Recorded live at Simon Frasier University in the pub with inebriate ambiance that grows too familiar after the 100th listening. Regardless, this is the 'sine qua non' of their recording debut. No chicken.....no Egg. It is hot and touted by many fans to be the most definitive of a Pumkin Evening. TUNES: Orville goes to the country / Kootenay Bark / I Believe / Medley / Long and Lonely / Ming 14 / You Can Change the World / People I Love You

Pied Pumkin Pied Alive

PIED ALIVE (Pied Pumkin) CD 13 songs recorded live in 9 communities during the Pumkin's hugely successful 33 concert 1999 Western Canada Tour. Newcastle, Gabriola, Denman and Lasqueti Islands, Cobble Hill, Victoria, Port Moody, Salmon Arm and the Vancouver East Cultural Centre serve as settings for dynamic musical polaroids from B.C.'s beloved minstrels. Dulcimer, guitar , violin, flute, piano and mandolin combine in a smorgasbord of folk, rock, jazz, blues and country.

Pumkin classics Mixall Lake and Lotus Eaters Blues join the more recent War Is Over Overture, Pickin' Country and Lost Soul Man. There's sweet irony in tunesmith Mock's One of The Few Times and tender philosophy in Miz Shari's Turning. Jester Rick's Little Bit O' Good is a toe tapping invocation to dance. Joe leads Black Dog into a raging canine jam, Cuckoo invokes tradition while Lox Breakdowns calls up gypsies. The absurdly profound folk opera Orville Goes To The Country is wacky new age musical theatre - Shari's gargle alone is worth the price of admission! If you were in the cheering, foot- stomping audience you may even hear yourself on this album! As a grand finale, the band leads the audience in a parade out of the hall into the Newcastle night with the irresistible singalong Oohlahey, reprised by a rapturous crowd from Lasqueti Island.
