Shetland reels: Spootiskerry (Ian Burns)/Sleep Soond i’ da Moarnin’/Faroe Rum/Willafjord -trad.Scottish
We close out the album with a "live" recording from the concert we played for JAM Inc. at In Your Ear Music in Richmond on Jan 22, 2010. The great Shetland collector Tom Anderson said that there were fiddlers from many countries employed in the whaling industries. Shetland was an important participant in those industries in the 19th century, and benefited musically both from Shetland sailors visiting other ports of call, and foreign sailors bringing their traditions to Shetland. The syncopated rhythms associated with the Shetland fiddling styles can be found from Norway to Cape Breton, and these tunes are all session favorites.


This is an instrumental track.
