Elder Drone Reeds

Alan Parker of Australia very kindly sent me a recording of some elder reeds he made for a concert pitch set in D I made him. This is a short clip recorded on very basic equipment but it gives an idea of the potential for the use of different reed materials.
Very nice thanks.

Some tunes on a B set

It’s fun jamming.

I wrote a tune the other week and quickly put down a recording in case I forgot it. Well a few days later I accidentally recorded this over the top of the tune I had recorded and couldn’t remember it anymore.
