Practice Update 13th April


Some of us got together last night.  Thank you to Iain for hosting.

Got a lot of practice in and covered off most of the tunes we did not practice on 11th April with the exception of Colgrave Sound and the Exhibition Hall as only a few folk has been at the workshops where these were originally taught.

We also had a go at Da Slockit Light which sounded not too bad and The Reel of Tullochgorm aka Jimmy Allen which was a bit unfamiliar.

We tried some combinations of tunes which we think worked fine though we are happy to be given alternative suggestions.  I am hoping Iain will remember what we tried to combine – I think we tried:

–  Scarce O Tatties with Stool of Repentance and considered we might add Rocking the Baby at the beginning of this set

– Fear a Phige and Oovie Avie

– Britches Fu O Stitches and Egan’s Polka

– High Road to Linton (was preceded by another tune maybe Spootiskerry?)

See you Monday 18th at Stow College for some more scratching.

    Many thanks to everyone that turned up I had a great time! (and the beer was good too shhh). Happy to host sometime in the future again if there is a missing venue.
    As for the sets we tried … Spootiskerry and Highroad to Linton sounds like a good choice to me and another Fairy Lullaby and Stary Nights of Shetland?

    Cheers Iain. Look forward to making some more scratchy noises soon. Maybe my attempt at memorising For the Young will come along in a year or two.
