Thanks Dave. Yes I do know Arran Brass! A few years ago, a couple of Ian and Christine Cargill's sons played with Dalkeith and Monktonhall, and the band were invited over a couple of times to play massed band events,concerts, parades ,and on one bizarre occasion, a joint gig with some Buddhist monks! Wonderfully happy and drunken times!! I'm glad you're enjoying "Carrickfergus". Alan Morrison recorded this at about half the speed I imagined it, but made it twice as good as I thought it'd be!! A fine example of the fact that us arrangers just put the notes there - it's up to you guys to do something with them! How are the Cargill's? Is the bass player still working in the sweetie shop in Brodick?
