Wow, this year’s Hallowe’en show is a smoker. Traditionally, Railroad pulls out the stops for Hallowe’en, and this year’s was no exception. The first set contains a number of gems, including two songs broken into separate sections with the inclusion of different songs within them. Fantastic stuff.  I love Kid on the Mountain, too, I must say.  Coupled with Through the Gates, debuted earlier in the week, and there are even more Celtic fiddle tunes making their way into the sets. I hope both stay.

Oh, and Gretna Green.  This is another Jack Hardy tune — Dover to Dunkirk is also his. I definitely hope this one stays in rotation.

Also here are recordings of the post-show picking that happened out in the crowd and in the lobby. Haven’t gotten to that yet, but it’s nice to see it being done.
