Re: Lover's Waltz

Lee Benoit also recorded it. Mike Hebert played fiddle. I think that it has become his "title" song. His version is quite good.

Actually, the song is on Lee benoit's CD titled "Live at Vermilionville." According to the liner notes, his name is Mark, not Mike; and all of this time I thought it was Mike.

Re: Re: Re: Lover's Waltz

yes, i agree lee benoit;s version is good.
that 'live at vermilionville' is a great record.
i am constantly surprised no one raves about it
on this group.
lee also plays 'ashokan farewell' at least live.
that is the song that was all over the 'civil war'
series, which is also being rerun on pbs now.
steve riley changed one of the chords
from the original version, probably the
original one [played on piano and fiddle] is
too chromatic or something. the original has
a spot where you really can;t tell what
chord should go there, it;s suspended or something.
