Dirty Trousers

A composition of Juergen Horstmann and Max Bruecher. We wanted to play an instrumental with the song Tarry Trousers (heard on the LP of Celtic Tradition with my friend Ken Philipps) and all of a sudden we ended in a reel inspired by the lovely melody of the song. In fact we forgot about the song but played the reel for about decades now. Inspired by Lennon/McCartney or Jagger/Richards we published it under Horstmann/Bruecher on our CD Second Home. Actually I don’t remember who wrote the first/second part.
The title is based on a really funny story, but I don’t dare to tell it here without permission of our box player ;)
