Hi , one more piece from a recent gig in France ,
we had Loic Blejan join the trio with his Uilleann pipes..

I like what you're doing here, and you really appear to have quite a sizeable investment in equipment. I was very impressed in the manner that you took over the bass on the organ during the arco bass solo. I can't tell if the organ is a Hammond XK-3 double-manual from the camera angle; it looks like one.

Keep posting!!

Thanks John , the bass player is my brother Gildas and yes , he likes to have bass behind
is arco solos so I try to oblige with my somewhat limited organ chops.the Hammond is the fairly
recent SK-2 ... it's a really good axe and also... it's only 35 pounds ...every little bit helps.

Thanks mr Mackay...I also am very partial to the pipes , I'm originally from Brittany ,
the north western region of France where the folk music is Celtic as well , so drones and pipes
always get me too...My brother Gildas (on Bass) composed this piece.

I love the groove, and all the sounds used to speak the language... and tell a nice story! From old original instrument, to vibes and modified bowed d-bass! Beautiful! :o)
