Rehearsals are going well and we’ve got a clutch of new tunes and a song or two all ready to go! We’re just waiting for the venues to reopen, and for an appointment at the hairdressers…
We made another of those home videos – this is a set of tunes we first heard at Celtic Connections in Glasgow, played by Vishten, a fantastic trio from Prince Edward Island in French-speaking Canada.
Many thanks to Angela for putting together the video and to Jack for mixing the sound – all recorded on iPhones at home in York.
Not long until we’ll be rehearsing together again – a new era begins!
We’ve been accumulating a pile of tunes to try out, as soon as we can get together again. And in the meantime, we’ve forgotten how to play half the old tunes. One of the bandwives posted a video of us playing a Peatbogs set in the Snick and I had to sit still and listen because I couldn’t remember any of it. So, two priorities: get all the old tunes back under our fingers and sort out a load of new ones!
