Two great videos of two great performances, Kevin. You always set the bar so high! Lovely balance on both videos, a hard task on a live performance, and the three of you are just so together in the delivery of both sets.

Thanks lads, that's simply the wee camera sound ana a very basic but good Yamaha rig that the club owned, with our mikes.

Here's George Duff's fine singing with some bouzouki plinking.

I remember "Banks of the Bann" from Silly Wizard so long ago. Thanks for the reminder, this is a very fine rendition, too.

Terrific stuff guys !!!. My local Folk club has a group of musicians who play mostly Irish jigs/reels etc. The tempo of the Scottish equivalent is far more 'finger friendly' to me as a Bluegrass musician - maybe i should move to Scotland (not a bad idea anyway,i love the place !).
''The Fiddlin'Solicitor's Reel'' has a lovely tempo.to it - many thanks,;)

Indeed, that whole set is very much leaning towards Old Time, the 2nd and 3rd tune being from genuinely Scottish Ian Hardie who has composed much OTish music nevertheless. So if you search for a gateway eastward across the Atlantic, this is it. I have already walked part of it back and forth (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B59MwrPYXV0) (thanks again Kevin for the heads-up) and I can recommend it.

Great to hear you playing Ian Hardie's music Bertram, Ian would have been delighted, I am sure. He is sorely missed.

The Fiddling Solicitor's Reels is the opening track on my last mandolin based cd "Highland Strands", as it happens.

It opens this short video ....

What a great wee set, Kevin. I am totally envious and am now reminiscing about the great sessions we enjoyed at Polbain back in August 2013. If I remember there were at least three resonators plus boxes, fiddle and guitar. And a Chinese professor! Would love to have a reprise some time.
