I was too close to the camera and there was a moment of confussion when my mother came in and danced.

I'm bored so I'll comment about the tunes:
-I had a piece of the first jig in my mind, so I searched for it with the ABC searcher on . I found it and learned it. But I forgot about that "a" in bars 5 and 13.
-A friend of mine told me she had just learned the Swallowtail, so I decided to re-learn it. But among other mistakes you can hear I start with "BEE GEE" most of the time instead of "GEE BEE".
-Once I was listening to "The Late Session" on RTÉ.ie and I liked a set of tunes a fiddler, whose name I can't remember, was playing alone. So I transcribed the first tune. It happened to be the Swallowtail Reel in E Dorian, when that reel is normally played in A Dorian. So this is his setting, sorry for stealing it.

P.D. No, we don't have a cat.
