Silly Wizard - Glint of Silver set - #1

It seems that Silly Wizard and particularly Phil Cunningham are still a widely-open-question for the Session ;) Well, these dark spaces have to be filled up anyway… for Phil’s accordion tehniques and arrangements simply drive me crazy 😛

This reel is the first one from the 1st set on their last studio album, that is rather weird one comparing to earlier records. It took me some time to understand its soul *or whatever* - genious work, in fact 🙂

Roarin’ Donald is an Andy M Stewart tune, written for his (then fairly young) son. Quite fun to play!

Agreed!..

Thanks for info =)

Variation from turn 2

I have added my transcription to give the variations played by Phil on the second phrase A.
