The Balkan - Celtic connection

Certainly not a slip jig … but an earworm of a tune from Ross Ainslie. Best attempted after fully digesting a recorded version. I found a nice one here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dNTsYO4uzE


A pretty amazing feat to get whole band (at least 6 more musicians!) playing live with all the changing time signatures. Sure, it looks like they’re reading sheet music (except for Ross and the drummer), but so what.

I presume the "Sharat" is Sharat Srivastava. We used one of his tunes for the Lauland Big Tune Machine in 2018. I seem to remember transcribing it in (7+4+7)/8!

Re: Sharat And Gyan’s

Looks like Ali Hutton on guitar, John Somerville on accordion, James Lindsay on bass, Laura-Beth Salter on mandolin and Laura Wilkie on fiddle. Not up on me drummers, I’m afraid.
