Scartaglen Polkas

Uploaded .

This is probably the last of this stuff from the archives that I’ll upload. Rescued from a cassette tape of a live performance with former band mates in Scartaglen. These tunes are popular down in the Southwest of Ireland. Michael(Fiddle) and I seemingly couldn’t be much bothered with actually playing the melody of the last tune and kept improvising around it. Kinda sloppy, but the energy was pretty good that night.

These are such fun tracks. Sheer listening pleasure. When I was a senior at school, I used to hold a country dance class for the younger ones in the gym at lunchtimes. They used to display on Sports Day. Your music really has my feet tapping.

Is It For You solo: that is simply a MXR distortion+ and my Fender Mustang with Bartolini pickups - a touch of reverb in Cakewalk Pro Audio. This was recorded in 2000. Thanks for the listen and comment!

Scartaglen was a Kansas City based Celtic music group that formed in 1982 and produced three albums (all now out of print) before disbanding in 1994. The group was composed of co-founder Roger Landes, vocalist and keyboard player Connie Dover, Michael Dugger, Kirk Lynch and Rebecca Pringle. It's amazing what you can find on the internet.

Very FNG! That would be very cool if we could work this sort of thing into an Illegal Alien track.
