One of my favourite albums of all time

anyone know the names of the tunes in the fiddlestix set?

also the happy in the second track is meant to be the hornpipe…not the reel.

Kevo - if you fix up the spelling of Devil AMONG the tailors (track 14), you’ll get a link to it 🙂

the tunes in the fiddlestix set used to be The Devil in the Kitchen and The Jolly Tinker.
