Exclusive Daily Download: "The Baker," Sam and Sue

An exclusive download of Irish music from a stuntologist and a famed dog trainer

Stuntologist (see here), prankster and banjoist extraordinaire Sam Bartlett isn't a relation of mine (neither is fiddler and dog world celebrity Sue Sternberg, for that matter), but I've often wished that both of them were. Their 1993 tape, "Sam and Sue Belting You With Reels," a collection of primarily traditional Irish tunes, was a teenage favorite of mine, and now that they've reissued it on CD, with five new tracks and some snazzy new packaging, I thought I'd take the opportunity to post my favorite tune from the record, two minutes of lazy, contented riffing on an obscure Irish tune called "The Baker."
