Monahan’s Mudder’s Milk

It all began three years ago when I was introduced to Firefly, a Sci Fi Western by Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. I became a huge fan.

Wild Mountain Thyme

This is one of the earliest songs I learned when I began playing Celtic music. The Brobdingnagian Bards recorded it on A Faire to Remember, and it never ceased to capture someone’s attention.

Help Me Finish Naming This Tune

I was watching Rick Steves this weekend, a feature on Italy, Assisi in particular. I love Assisi. I’ve only been once, but it was the most-peaceful and soulful place I’ve been in my entire life. Pure bliss. Afterward, I composed this tune thinking of Assisi, St. Francis, the cathedral and the that happy sense of […]
