Hanter Dro "Clam", "The Flat Earth" and the unknown tune were recorded near Boscawen-Ûn stone circle, Imbolc 1998.
"Carnaval da Lanz" was recorded in Truro Cathedral, December 1997. This is the only piece that survived from that recording, but we also played there in December 1998, and there's a full recording of that here.
Both schottisches, the Ski-slope Waltz and the costaquat (is that the correct name/spelling?) were recorded at The Jacob's Ladder (a pub in Falmouth). We did weekly music and dance sessions there for a while.
"Le Juneau de Michard" was recorded at Mavericks Cafe, Falmouth during a Sunday morning session.
The an dro was recorded at Constantine Village Hall, 14/03/98. [gig flyer]
The two bombarde and biniou pieces were recorded at the One Big Family Festival held in St. Piran's Round, near Perranporth, on 16/05/98. [festival flyer] [page from festival programme]
The hanter dro, an dro, and bombarde and biniou pieces are all Breton. The rest are (presumably) French. If you have any more specific or correct information about these tunes, please get in touch.
These were all recorded on mono equipment. They've been enhanced somewhat with a bit of EQ and dynamic processing.
A couple of years later, Joel and Jo ended up as half of the acclaimed ensemble Red Dog Green Dog.
