Another Live performance with former band mates in Scartaglen back in 1988 on the NPR show Mountain Stage. This time a piece of Gaelic mouth music followed by 3 reels. Maybe the most complex arrangement of a set of tunes that we ever did.

great sound. Very lively and engaging. I may well have heard this 'live' on the radio as this one a show I listened to frequently back during this time.

I really like the opening vocal work. And the playing that follows is brilliant, must have been fun to hear live.

from Vaisvil - re; nylon 6 string - I've had really good luck with my local guitar center with used equipment. Re: 19 edo - many people consider 19 notes per octave to be the next logical step since you can still play 12 equal music (with sweeter chords) and also play stuff you can't play in 12 equal. However, if any alternate tuning has been embraced by academia it has been 24 notes per octave (quartertones) which is a much harder beast to tame though really good composers have pulled it off.

Great! You know, I first heard Clannad listening to the U2 Red Rocks concert on Showtime (My folks didn't actually subscribe to Showtime, so the picture was scrambled - but the audio was clear!). They had such lovely atmospherics, they grabbed my attention right away, even though I didn't understand a word. To my delight, in going through the back catalog, I was exposed to their acoustic, traditional music - the kind of music you played. It's a joy to hear your performances! Aloha!
