While some of the tunes come in late, I think this one sets the record, at almost 8 years.

Here my band, the Tony Eyers Trio, plays the American old time standard "Duck River". We play a little harmonica on this one as well. The accordions are a D/G Saltarelle Le Bouebe, tuned  up by Peter Hyde, and an A/D Mike Rowbotham Liliput.

Absolutely brilliant! I loved this.  (:)
Great tune, superb rhythmic playing and post-production gubbins.  ;)

Oi minds the toime when oi was showin' the new vicar round the church. "Oi can't make it out", 'e says, "all the children in this 'ere village looks aloike to me". And oi larffed, but 'e never seemed ter follow me so, oi give it up.

I agree with Steve, a thoroughly delightful performance, superb arrangement and all round good fun. I hope I will one day see the trio take centre stage again, more please!  ;D

That's how it played out. Two hats, three heads. After heated discussions the left and right hand heads prevailed.

AGREED re: wonderful theme (said the bedraggled American). 

A quick story re: Blackberry Blossom: President US Grant (presidential term 1869-1877) was supposedly once quoted as saying something to the effect that he "really hated music, ESPECIALLY that @#$%$# Blackberry Blossom."
