25 October, Havîrna, Gheorghe Ciucur, Ion Badurlă
Gheorghe was very reluctant to come out, and we ended up waiting three hours fo him to come at the village cafe. he finally came out and we spent some time with him in he Cultural House, an institution found in most Romanian villages. He hadn't played for a long time, and he took a while to warm up. Once he did he sounded great. One could hear that he was a fantastic fiddler earlier in his life. His accompanist was Ion Bardulă, a hardware store owner from a close by village.
