No Commercial Appeal

David Beede, Mark Treacy & Suwonneh Wood were well known around Gainesville Florida during the late 70s playing under the tongue in cheek name of “No Commercial Appeal” (which unfortunately proved prophetic.) They played folk festivals, coffee houses and street corners from New Orleans to Maine. Their enthusiastic versions of American and British Isle folk tunes have stood the test of time. (22 tunes - see cover)

David Beede - hammered dulcimer, fretted dulcimer  & vocals
Suwonneh Wood - bowed psaltery, penny whistle, guitar  & vocals
Mark Treacy - guitar, fretted dulcimer & mandolin
Bill Dudley - recording engineer & guitar on “Ash Grove”

This is a whole CD of funny songs, some original, some collected, some borrowed some blue(s).

A crazy concert captured at the Across Town Repertoire Theater in Gainesville FL, complete with a rogue computer who tries to abort the evening.


Journey Through Pentatonia
Pentacover2.jpg (20723 bytes)
David and phenomenal French flautist Christine Alicot co-create these soothing soundscapes on silver flute, harp, hammered dulcimer, bowed psaltery, wind chimes, rain stick and drum.

1. Haven from a summer storm... (thunder provided by God - her timing is impeccable.)

2. What my heart is willing to feel...
    What my heart is willing to tell.

Reports claim this music is perfect for yoga, tai chi, meditation, birthings, hospice care and has been known to sooth a room full of kindergarteners at nap time....;-)


Songs in Progress...
these are not yet on any CD and may be early versions.

"Two Seeds" - a gourd banjo riddle song I wrote with my wifes kindergarten class. They sing along!

Uneasy Listening Music - tackling such things as war, affluence & religion - some people may find them offensive. If you think you might be such a person, listen at your own risk...;-)
