Calabrian tunes

An interesting little session on Saturday night - I was at a party near Swalecliffe, Hélenè's caravan-warming (a tVC connection). She'd asked me to bring my saz, and other people had been encouraged to bring instruments. What resulted was Jim (self-described "old hippie") with an accordion playing a few Calabrian tunes he'd picked up from his dad (having grown up in Fishguard with Italian parents), accompanied by me bashing out rhythm on my saz and Justin (a local artist who I've been told I should meet for a while now) freestyling over the top of that with a muted pocket trumpet. It was all a bit rough, and the background noise didn't help, but a lot of fun, and we got people dancing.
