That’s what the multi-purpose hammer (check out 2:25) is for! On the job tuning done at 1:57, 3:05. :wink:

Now is Lee playing guitar on the banjo??! Pardon my banjo ignorance. :slight_smile:

Lee is playing the banjo. Personally, the only thing that’s missing is a banjo break.

I really do like Andrew’s rough voice. I understand that three of the boys are brothers and Virginia is married to John, I think. How did you wind up in this band Lee?

By the way y’all, this band has released five albums, I have a couple and love them. They also play concerts and festivals and Lee is an established song writer. Lee, correct me if I’m wrong, the band’s name translates to American as raising a fuss or causing a ruckus.

Hi Archie it’s a video for a new song featured on free download as part of a Trilogy and all songs will be featured on our 5th Album out either later this year or early next year

We recorded the video in a few hours TBH at an old court house in Wigan :+1:

Wow… you’ve done some research and all true what you say

I’ve known the Kettle brothers for a very long time and I played in a band in the 1990’s with them called The Tansads which was a successful folk/punk band which eventually split in 1995

We met up 20 years later and did a reunion and shortly after we started MH with Johns wife Virg who is a very prolific songwriter and folk artist

Take care :+1:
