Dedicated to our new pet mousie! Written by Colin Farrell, fiddle and whistle player, who recorded this tune on Flook's album Haven. The sheet music on The Session is not exactly what we play, nor does it match the original recording, but if you're curious, it's here. Have a great week, everyone!
Hope you are all having a fantastic week! Here's a new reel that we caught on tape on Sunday at Waxy's. It's by Calum MacCrimmon, piper and flutist for the band Breabach. There's sheet music online at The Session. Enjoy!
We just learned a masterpiece of an E major jig. Hope you enjoy - we're off to the Ben Nevis to learn some more tunes (and maybe play this one a couple dozen times)!
Hi everyone! Ben and I have been in Scotland for a week and already I've recorded more tunes than I can learn! Whenever we learn a new one that we particularly love, we'll record a short version of it and post it here on our blog page. For the ones that happen to be on The Session, I'll post a link to the sheet music, but no guarantees that we'll play it the same way! If you want sheet music of our version to be posted, or a slower version to be recorded, just leave a comment and I'll see what I can do! Enjoy our first tune, Roddy MacDonald's Fancy, a catchy 4-part pipe reel recorded by The Battlefield Band.

We're still riding the excitement of last Wedesday's concert at the Burren Backroom, where we opened for the Scottish supergroup Daimh in their first-ever Boston concert.
We were lucky enough to catch some good video while we were at it! All four of our numbers are in the YouTube links below - enjoy!
We're excited to announce that we will be touring the DC area from June 5-15. Stay tuned for details!
