Hurray! Glad to see someone posted this tune.
It’s a composition by the splendid fiddler Hanneke Cassel, in tribute to the Boston Urban Ceilidh, an occasionally occuring event that its organizers describe as "contra dance meets mosh pit." There are social dances from the Irish, Scottish and Cape Breton traditions, and a high-energy ceilidh band with some of the area’s best musicians to provide the tunes.
