I composed this Celtic-sounding fiddle tune while camping deep in the forests of the Adirondack Mountains back in 1991. I wrote the melody out on a cardboard box so that when I got through camping I would remember the tune and be able to play it on my fiddle which was not with me on the camping trip. "Braw Birks" is Gaelic ( I think so) for "Beautiful Birches".

A fun piece. I played all the instruments on this cut by multi-tracking in the studio. Had a lot of fun doin' it and hope you enjoy. If I can remember accurately, I believe I was playing a custom gibson put up by Dave Nichols of Custom Pearl Inlay.I later sold this banjo to Eric Gibson of the Gibson Brothers. I'm using my '59 Bowtie almost exclusively these days.
