Iron Broo playing in Charlie’s living room. (I’ll point out – We normally would be dressed for a gig in a venue for a wedding)
The tunes are The Headlands (R.Cooper) / Miss Linda MacFarlane (R. Brock)
Brendan O’Leary on mandolin, Fred Wilkinson on bouzouki, Charlie Abel on accordion.
This was filmed on 25th January 2016, Robert Burns Night. We played these impromptu after having spent the afternoon filming with James Matthews for a SKY News piece. He had us playing in the back of his car while he drove round Aberdeen asking about the oil industry. It’s pretty difficult filming in a moving car. There were 4 of us playing. I’ll post the news piece if I can get it later. (here it is http://news.sky.com/video/1631176/oil-crisis-aberdeen-car-share )
These tunes are great for a Gay Gordons ceilidh dance or a Grand March at a wedding.
This filmed at Iron Broo HQ in the living room. In front of a nice cosy log burner on a cold January day. Much needed heat to get the fingers moving.
3 Classic hornpipes. The Boys of Bluehill – Harvest Home – The Trumpet Hornpipe. You might recognise the last tune from the old tv programme ‘Captain Pugwash’.
