Tell us something.: The Best Trad Flute Playlist in the World, Probably
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... x4lHZhpaND

Currently I've managed to collect following flutes (going to reduce this to concentrate on the Olwell)
Olwell keyless D - my original proper flute - has a Bb body so keeping this
Olwell 6 key D - what I'm going to now concentrate on
Martin Doyle cocus D - keeping this because it's a beautiful sweet sound from the cocus/unlined head
Hamilton keyless D - it's a beautiful instrument but gets overlooked because of the olwell
Sam Murray 6 Key D - too tempting to pick up as so easy to fill and play - need to put it on the top shelf to make me play the Olwell

Sporadically posting videos online these days because people need the music and I'm on lockdown so don't have much else to do! Did a flute one today and thought I'd share it here.

Tell us something.: I’ve been a musician all my life. My voice is an instrument and I have played many other types of instruments as well. At 63 years of age I decided to take up the Flute. I have a 10 year goal of playing on the stage at the Carnegie Hall. My teacher tells me I’m doing quite well for only six months in, but I also want to get other peoples opinions and helps. That’s why I’m here

My measly attempt at playing "Colonel Frazer". My wife almost walked in at the middle and I messed up at the end. But here goes nothing:

Now at 639 videos - so putting it on shuffle on your phone or PC should give you a couple of hours of quality playing.
Listening- recently Brendan Mulholland. Larry and Michael Joe McDonagh.

Playing - Olwell Blackwood D and Eb keyless/D six keyed, Hamilton D, Doyle D, Sam Murray 6 key D.

Steffen is a terrific flute player. I recommend checking out his album The Land's End Sessions (some tracks are available on youtube) as well as his band Deistch. I have the album Mittsommer sessions: it's great (mostly German folk music). They play a few tunes from this album in this video. Enjoy :)

Tell us something.: To add to the renaissance flute discussion that is under way. Well, the rest of this field is going to be taken up by a long sentence, which is this one, because a hundred characters are needed before it is accepted.
