    They are playing the reel “The wind that shakes the barley” on Balailikas here is Liam O’Flynn and Tommy Peoples

      On *balalaikas* (на балалайках).

        No idea what all that Russian stuff means, they might be playing the theme from Shaun Davey’s Brendan Voyage, though without Uilleann pipes it would not sound great.

          Regardless of what that piece is, the instrument is called balalaika.
