Our Pizza Sessions – Live Ceilidh Music Videos
It was the first of May 2017 and it was time for some more live ceilidh music video. I had not long finished building the Pizza Oven, a dream that had been on my bucket list for a long time. A crazy dream that would scare most folk off as it was not an easy task but I wanted to make the real thing. I spread the work over 2 years, a slice at a time. It’s based on the ancient Pompeii design and built from bricks and mortar. I did use a few modern substitutes in the build process however it remains a concrete and brick oven built from scratch. It cooks amazing food and not just pizza. I invited the band over for a pizza party to celebrate the anniversary of the Liberation of Italy, a few days earlier and the completion of the oven works. So, while the oven was getting up to temperature we decided to have a wee tune…
You can see the videos and others on our ceilidh clips pages.
We are based in Aberdeen, Scotland. In the video, it might look like we are in Italy but it was pretty cold when we filmed these. It was supposed to be spring and reasonably warm but the Scottish weather has never been known to pay any attention to details or expectations, it was only 8c. Luckily sitting in front of the oven put out enough heat to keep us warm and stop the fingers freezing up completely.
We tried an improv version of a tune I wrote that I thought came out pretty well, here it is.. If you like the videos please consider subscribing to my YouTube Channel. It’s free and you will get updates when I post new movies.
