Mr & Mrs Philip Goodlad’s Hegri Jig

Philip & Susan Goodlad

Commissiond for Philip and Susan Goodlad’s wedding in October 2008 as a gift from Philip’s parents Alexis and Jimmy Goodlad.
Alexis and Jimmy wanted to give them a “Shetland” gift they would always remember – so they approached Steven to write a lively tune. As Philip worked at Radio Shetland and currently at Radio Scotland in Glasgow they requested Steven to incorporate a hint of Radio Shetland signature tune and Radio Scotland jingles, which can be heard in the tune!
Because of Philip’s life long obsession with hegris (more often as not to poor Susan’s dispare AND embarrassment!) they called the tune, “Mr & Mrs Philip Goodlad’s Hegri Jig”.
Played by Steven Spence – fiddle
Alice Mullay – piano
Jonathan Ritch – guitar / bass

Charlie’s Reel

Written in memory of Charlie Priest, a hugely popular and tireless pillar of the community in Unst. He was a very well liked, humorous and hard working man who’s untimely passing has left such a big gap on the island which probably can’t be filled.
Played by Steven Spence on fiddle & John Laughland accompaniment.

HE WILL BE MISSED

George Spence – Live on Radio for Children in Need

My 14 year old son George played on live radio for the first time last night on Radio Shetland for the Children in Need programme.  I dropped him off at the studio and went out to my car and switched on the radio to listen. I got my mobile phone on record to capture him playing fiddle along with Kirsten Henry on piano. It was a wild night with gale force winds and heavy sleety showers (which was rattling off the windscreen on my car!) and there was also a helicopter flying overhead, so it all added some interesting sound effects to my already poor quality phone recording!

Here is a couple of sets I managed to record in the car. The first is a lovely slow air composed by Phil Cunningham called ‘The Pearl’. The second set is two tunes composed by George, ‘Da Booncy Castle’ followed by a tune he hasn’t got a name for yet and finishes with a great reel composed by Gideon Stove called ‘Da Brig o’ Fitch.
