I thought everyone would get a kick out of this vid!  I was playing my "Jolly Fiddler" at our last Civil War Reenactment while the guys were trying to build a human period!  How I managed to play without dying of laughter was beyond me! rofl

Hope you enjoy it!  cheers

Nice hearing you play in the back-ground EJ smile

We actually had a 6 year old flag bearer that was SUPPOSED  to be on top, but he ran off someplace! LOL  I knew we shouldn't have given him that sugar packed candy bar! facepalmrofl

 

I think we're going to try again at the next event!  Can't wait to see what happens next! LOL

I actually had to close my eyes at some point in order to keep playing! LOL  I didn't know if I was going laugh or cringe!  I nearly lost it when the pyramid collapsed to!  The second the camera was off, I had to sit down from laughing so hard!

Terry, here's how we spend the long evenings! LOL  This is a vid of 3 of our 5 cannons firing off at night!  It was a thing of beauty! cheers

Wait till next month!  There were only 3 cannon in that vid!  At our next event, we have 5 lined up to fire!  I can't wait!

Plus, I've been asked by the parks department if I could be included on the candlelight tour!  ......talk about being nervous!!  They want me to play 3-5 songs that are "lullaby-like" and are period correct.  They want something that would be heard in camp after a hard fought battle to calm the nerves of soldiers.  It should be fun!  I'm actually going through old Civil War Hymns right now to see what I can play!
