We had a fantastic live session on rootsandshoots this evening from Chris Jewell and Si Hopkins - aka Step2 Ceilidh Band.

Video with Chris and Si in the studio here.
They performed for us...
A Set of Slip Jigs, Donkey Riding / Pepper In The Brandy and a Set of Shetland Reels on melodeon, guitar and banjo and a song The Lancashire Lads sung by Si.
We played 2 tracks from albums they contributed to. Chris's band M4trix with The Awakening from the album Gaps plus Cheri Ici, Cheri La Bas from The Bayou Tapestry by Si's band Zig A Zag. Excellent music.
