Last night Steve taught us the jig Old Tipperary - nice one Steve, thank you.

We also ran through a few of our sets for the Winter School ceili.  Rather than try to get new sets up to speed we plan to use the Caloundra sets from a few weeks ago, revisit some of our older sets, and also the Australian sets of Cath's tunes.  There are only two more Wednesdays before the Winter School so if you wish to play it would be good if you can come along to them.

Do you think it's getting a bit too chilly to venture out to the hall on Wednesday?  Not so!  We set up in the smaller room last night in anticipation of needing the heaters but didn't have to turn them on.
Steve taught an Ed Reavy reel, The Hunter's House.  It really rocks along, logical to follow but interesting to listen to.  Thank you Steve, good choice.

The ceili sets have been well practiced, we're up to speed, and now looking forward to a Celtic music-packed weekend at the Caloundra Powerboat Club. :)

It's been a while since we learned a slip jig.  Steve rectified that last night with Elizabeth Kelly's Delight, a tune in A Dorian.  Thank you Steve.
Following that, and a tea break with Tim Tams, we continued with the ceili practice.  We have some good sets put together for that and are looking forward to using them.
