When you guys all kick into gear with the fiddle and tambo, it's a beautiful thing.

Nice balanced sound amongst the players.  I love the syncopation when Dave sings "the whoopin' cough".  Cuffie looks like he's about to become airborn any minute with those bones, and his silhouette against the tent canvas is like some crazy Indonesian shadow puppet show.  :)

Cuffie and the Shakers? No kidding? I'll be jiggered.

Looks like a great show. A real circus atmosphere to go along with the circus jig you started off with.

Come over to the civilian town.  We'll be there, and a few other folks will have period instruments as well.  You might need a pass...

Nice to see Kyle doing his thing. These guys sound great.

That's the way to warm up a February afternoon. Great stuff! Didja git any more footage? I'd like to hear it all.
