This is an absolute cracking reel by Gabe McVarish of Daimh and deserves to be more widely played. It’s the opening tune on their "Pirates of Puirt" album. From the sleeve notes the tune was written for guitarist Ross Martin who, thinking he had superman powers, dived through the kitchen window of the Eigg village hall and landed unfortunately on his nose. Knowing these guys there is very little doubt a wee bit of the deoch was involved.
