Irish Guy Playing the Spoons (used in eating!)

I came across this video on Facebook of an Irish guy playing the Spoons. The spoons are often played by percussionists and bodhran (traditional Irish drum) players along with Irish music in sessions.

The tune, however, that he’s playing along to is “Insomnia”, a dance track from British electronica band Faithless. It was recorded on phone by a musician from Manchester called Ellis Holden. Have a watch!
