Re: Happy Feet

This was an old traditional album that I often listened to as a child. Still some copies around on eBay, but a terrific band and a terrific album. Contact me if you want the tracks.

Jim Leighton - MIDI accordion, piano
Pete Clark - fiddle
Martin MacLeod - fiddle
Martin Hadden - guitar, electric bass
Jake Donnelly - banjo, mandolin, vocals
Martin Dibbs - drums

Re: Happy Feet

My brother Martin not only played on this recording, but also made it - Birnam CDs, still as busy as ever.
Jake Donnelly from Blairgowrie was a great character, and I seen to remember that in making the CD my brother had printed on the CD itself, “Warning - this recording contains banjo !” - without telling Jake. I wish I’d been around to see his face - but not necessarily heard the language - when Jake first opened his copy of the CD 🙂

Re: Happy Feet

Nice! This was the first traditional album that I ever listened to as a young child, and one that I still cherish to this day. They played at my mum and dad’s wedding and they did a fantastic job from what I’ve heard!
