1. Reel 2

From the recording Reel 2

<p>I was attending the <em>Swannanoa Gathering</em> the summer of 2014 and taking an advanced Scottish fiddle class with Jeremy Kittel (who is, by the way, a fabulous teacher!). &nbsp;Jeremy is one of the hottest young fiddlers out there, mastering many styles including classical, and jazz, but I remember him from his early days when he was handily winning National Scottish Fiddle Championships. &nbsp;He taught our class this tune that he had just written. &nbsp;It had both a Celtic and a jazz feel and I loved it. &nbsp;I caught him after class and asked for his permission to record the tune. &nbsp;He said yes and I took it back to <em>Belles on Strings</em> to arrange for harp, cello and fiddle. &nbsp;My band mates did an excellent job of capturing the energetic and jazzy feel of <em>Reel 2</em>. &nbsp;Here is a clip of the track which plays the fast part of <em>Reel 2</em> (track 13 on "Out of the Wood"). &nbsp;If you listen to the whole track you will hear the first part of the track where we play it slowly and lyrically. &nbsp;Then we kick it up into the rhythmic, faster version with percussion that you hear in this clip. Thank you Jeremy for this fabulous tune!</p>
