March 9th 2013, Cunningsburgh, Shetland. South Mainland Up Helly Aa, the ‘HOP’ night. Maskarade had played their set, and Muddy Bay was onstage when the Jarl Squad joined them for a number of tunes, followed by a speech by Rognvald “The Wise” Eysteinsson, Dale Smith. This clip provides us with a sense of the interpersonal, social, acoustic and visual resonances at play at Cunningsburgh Hall that night.
