Just Sublime Is What

There are three reels in play here - Crowley's, Trim the Velvet and the Roscommon Reel. The ensemble is Black Velvet, which is to say the Israelis Shani Kombelis on flute (I'm sorry, but I can't help noticing what an absolute stunner she is), Michael Greilsammer on fiddle, Ehud Nathan on bouzouki, Itay Abramovitz on keyboards, Nitzan Shachar on bodhran and whatnot, and John McSherry from the other Holy Land comes in part way through on uillean pipes.

The performance is from a music festival in Tel Aviv a while back, convened in tribute to the bold Donal Lunny.

And here's a bit more of McSherry:
