These seven tracks of barn dance music were recorded live at a wedding on April
18th 2009 - no studio tricks or enhancements, we just set up a small, portable
recorder on the table behind us to record some of the tunes and dances. If the
tracks are two large for you to play, or you don't have broadband, I can burn and send a CD to you.
The aim was to provide an accurate, 'warts and all'
recording for you. Me on squeeze box, Rob on fiddle or guitar, the caller was
Malcolm. Line-up as per picture above, apart from me on melodeon in the
recordings, rather than the bagpipes.
We were joined on triangle for some tracks by an enthusiastic
young guest who wanted to play along. Whilst not perhaps up to the standard of
Evelyn Glennie, she had great fun and it did add to the ambience of the event.
Our aim is to make your event as 'fun' and inclusive as possible.
The first tune, played before the dancing begins so we can
check the volume and tone levels of the different instruments.
