Love it Barry, the first one I have heard but can't recollect the name, not the Cliffs of Mohar but......nah, dunno, please tell me the name.

Ps, is that a glass of chilled white wine?
Shouldn't it be a pint of the black stuff? cheers

The first one is Swallow tail jig I think. I have a set of ST Jig, Irish washerwoman and The Blackthorn stick. I didnt recognize the second one. The third was Irish washerwoman if Im not mistaken. Love the fourth one, didnt recognize it at all.

So, at the risk of sounding like I know, I really like how nice your string changes were and the tempos, which are hard for me to do accurately right now. Sounded Great IMO. All you need now is  a house full of musicians and some kids dancin!

Funniest thing just happened. I was watching TV and listening to your video when a comercial came on for Payday candy bars and the peanut were dancing and it seemed to be the peanute dancing to your music.

 

Great Job Barry

Always loved the first tune. Shame we can't do it as a project. I'd even buy a bodhràn to play if I couldn't get a grip with the fiddling

I don't see a video.  @Barry, can you repost it? I know it was a long time ago but I'd still love to hear/see it. 

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.
