Options December 27, 2016: Two Trains
More trouble at the beginning of the show. No Big Guitars intro, no Texas Johnny Brown, no Angela Strehli, the first few songs are random numbers from the Drummer Stream. But once we start takin' off, around 13 minutes in, the show is mine. And once those two trains start running, we really get in the groove.

I was in Eastern Europe few years ago and we ran into this group called iPum playing on the streets. They were Percussion University Minhao (however that would be in Portuguese They were all percussion and bagpipes and they were amazing. I started reading about the musical cross-polinization that went from Scotland and Ireland all the way down to Morocco.

Michael Shrieve at 19 would make Galacia melt.

Minhao is just south of the border between Galicia and Portugul.
