Great tune
Really a cool way to end my night. I love celtic music, especially new takes on the old themes, as this is. Rockin' good fun!

More than a dance
Brilliantly put together. The overdriven chords were a surprise in this setting, though i am up for any cool reworking of traditional sounds, which this certainly is!

i had some difficulty imagining a setting for this piece though, with the slightly macabre and menacing guitar (to my ear).

i imagined a sort of 'Reservoir Dogs moment' with Celtic warriors cleaving enemies with claymores in a grisly sort of parody of dance!

Interesting, and brilliantly effective and tight.

Much enjoyed.

Thank you

Marc

Thanks Marc!
I love your brilliant sense of imagery with this song.
Very cool cinematic interpretation!
Danielle wrote a traditional reel for 2 fiddles and I immediately had a clear musical idea of how to transform the song. The accompaniment and arrangement came together in a morning, very fast all around.
Our group has a couple more tunes recorded with this same synergy, hope to get them to you guys sometime soon.
Thanks again Marc,
John

Excellent fiddling over that solid background. That should get people off their chairs all right. The doubled parts were both played live? It's a cool way to thicken up the mix.

Vic!
Hey Vic, thanks for listening.
Yes, both fiddle players, Danielle and Sarah, played the whole song live, absolutely no edits.
We put 2 mics in front of them and have both girls face each other, so it's a bit of a fun competition as they play.

One day I'd love to arrange a piece for Renaissance Rock-Recorder for a little collaboration perhaps?

Like
the combination of instruments on this one. The violin could be a taken back a tad to my ears.

Hey Denny,
Thanks for the listen!
I've remixed this one, and actually brought the violins down a pinch.
Great ears!

Love this reel with the heaviness of the guitar and bass to offset the light dancing of the fiddle.

I'm a sucker for this kind of music - any time anywhere.

Cheers,
Doug
