The Fox, the Flatworld and upcoming gigs
As 2013 drew to a close, we hit the studio with our new fiddle player Anneke Eijkelboom in order to record two new tracks. We started off with The Fox: an American song that the American band Nickel Creek inspired us to do. Secondly, we have recorded a lovely set of tunes, starting with a waltz (The Flatworld), followed by a couple of fast reels (Sweeney’s Wheel and Trip to Miriam’s) and ending with a slip jig (The Cock and the Hen). Listen to The Flatworld and The Fox here.
There won’t be time for us to rest on our laurels in 2014! We are happy to announce that we have been invited to play at Keltfest! The last time we were there was in 2011 and we cannot wait to play our new repertoire for the Dordrecht audience. On Sunday, March 2nd, we will be playing at Stadsbrouwerij Cambrinus in Zutphen. The subsequent weekend, we will venture on a journey to Oldenburg, Germany, to play at Fiddler’s Green Irish pub. And by then, St. Patrick’s Day will be just around the corner… More details will follow soon!
