Trio Rat are :-
We put this together several years ago now and made a demo CD, which got us zero bookings, and now we're mostly doing other things instead. Never mind, here are some recordings, anyway.
Minuet, from Rasmus Storm's Notebook
Rasmus Storm was an eighteenth-century Danish fiddler. He wrote a lot of tunes down, and his collection was re-discovered a few years ago.
The first is really a reinländer, from Ringnes, in Norway. I think the 2nd is Swedish.
Andy Hornby's weird tunes (Andy Hornby)
Young Andrew's Gallop, Timely Consent, Herald of Bores.
Pay the Piper / Pat's Rag (Andy Hornby / Tony Cooke)
A tune that Andy made for a bagpiping friend, and one of Tony's.
The New Dresser (Andy Hornby)
A tune named after a piece of furniture. There aren't a lot of those about, you know. Recorded live at the Lancaster Clocks Back Festival, October '98
A tune from Morocco. I know nothing, I learnt it in a pub in Leeds. Recorded live as above - isn't it nice when the audience do the work for you ?
Suprise Hornpipe / the Burn of Finnigirt / Marsascala (Pigg / trad. Shetland / Andy Hornby)
A bunch of fun tunes that I was looking for an excuse to play.
