Watch the Fingers Move Too

In mid-February I posted a video post titled, “Watch the Fingers Move” with the Cunningham brothers, the late Johnny (fiddle) and Phil (whistle, accordion).

Tonight you get a second chance to see their virtuosity – blindingly brilliant – with a medley from 1986.  Some of the tunes were in the first video but I’m sure you’ll agree that they are absolutely incredible.

  3. WOW! In Frenh Canada, we roll the carpet, get up and swing with that type of music. Les Danses Carrées! Pure genius. Do they play that fast, or is the tape sped up? Anyhow, it's fun. Thanks!

  4. JD Yes! I'd heard this one a few times but worth listening to again. As you say, "priceless". Thanks for reminding me and others.

  5. Claudia No speeding tricks there. They're just incredibly good, that's all.
