New tunes by Ron Verstappen (whistle) & Olaf Sickmann (guitar)

Hi all,here is my first internet collaboration with Belgium tin whistle maestro Ron Verstappen.

He plays two of his own compositions (Reels) with some guitar backing by myself.

The story behind this is very simple and typical for trad music players: Ron , a great tin whistle player and composer from Belgium and my facebook-friend, posted these 2 tin whistle tunes a while ago with very modern backing sounds:

I listened to it again and again and was flashed. Usually when I really like tunes I figure them out by ear and develop a guitar backing for practising purpose. I sent my backing to Ron and he recorded his whistle again and said these words about it:

"Trad remix. :-) Olaf Sickmann - Composer, Guitarist, Tin Whistle Player recorded an acoustic guitar backing track for these tunes, just for practicing reasons but I liked this "trad" sound result. So thank you Olaf, and hope you enjoy."

and he also said in his facebook post:

"Just saying that we didn't plan to do this. It just matched this way and that is awesome! Wait untill we do plan something ..."

Here is the result of our "unplanned" collaboration:
