That would throw me off so much I think I would die.

The real scandal in the clip is the outfit worn by the guy on the left.

The Dubliners did it years ago, they called it the Octopus Jig, John and Barney with one hand each on fiddle and banjo, then Ciaron puts a tin whistle into Johns mouth and finally Luke pours a pint of beer into Ciarons mouth.

See "comments"……..

There’s also a clip somewhere on "Youtube" of the Friel sisters [ I think it was ] from Glasgow doing similar with 2 flutes.

@ Scutcher
I really love that video, they make it look so effortless!

Although, my favourite is still The Dubliners’ "Octopus Jig", mentioned by Dave above:

What a great band the original Dubliners line up were!! 🙂

Re: Try this at a session…

Agreed about "Octupus Jig" although it would more resemble an octopus if they added in some uilleann pipes…

Re: Try this at a session…

I cdn’t find this in time to post earlier. This post may be too late to be seen by anyone but archivists, however this video is worth seeing and therefore worth filing under this subject.

And speaking of fiddling on another’s instrument, we used to stand behind a fiddler and take over the bowing, then give the bow back.

Or play facing each other, each with their fiddle on the other’s shldr. The RH/LH double fiddles posted above is an interesting version of this.

Enjoy!

I watched Lonely Boy for 3 minutes then lost the will to live, what a load of garbage.
