Playing at Crickhowell for the Jubilee

On a drizzly Jubilee bank holiday weekend we went to Crickhowell in the Brecon Beacons to play for the street party. It was a lovely gig, people watched despite the rain and we managed to get a few videos.

 

The Morning Star / Boys of Malin / Gravel Walks - a set of reels, the second two are famous together, but we added the first one to the beginning of the set.

 

Battlefields of Spain and The Maid Behind the Bar - a song and a tune. The song was written by Phil (in the hat) for the words of an existing poem and the tune is a famous reel.


Tabhair Dom Do Lámh (Give me your hand) / Spootiskerry - a lovely old waltz tune, played quite badly by me in this video because I coudn't really hear myself, followed by a tune we learned recently from Catherine (fiddle on the left), who learned it at the Feakle festival in Ireland.
