Found this fabulous documentary from "Early Music Seattle", featuring Randal Bays! 

During the baroque period, Irish fiddle traditions developed alongside the violin repertoire of the British courts.  Early Music Seattle celebrates this historical connection through this very special performance by Randal Bays, Irish fiddle; and Clint Dye, guitar.

@ABitRusty -

Yeah, this was a real eye-opener. 

Having played Planxty Burke/Planxty Drew faster (under duress), so nice to see I'm not the only one who thinks "Planxty Drew" sounds better at a leisurely pace! 

I was also really fascinated by Randal's interpretation of "Banish Misfortune"! 

For me, this is all worth studying more.
