Much like Mardi-Gras, here is the annual Fasnacht in Basel, Switzerland.  Tonight – Sunday at 10p – will be 4a Monday in Basel and if you chose to view the live feed you can see things step off.  It is quite an experience, I can personally tell you, and while it has nothing to do with sea or tavern music, so many of our fans and friends are from Basel and environs.  Fifes (piccolos, really) and drums… more recently they’ve permitted bagpipes and bands during most of the festival.
