One of my favorite flute players, this is great news! Something to shop for when I'm back in Cork in September.

One of mine too, bring back a bunch. WalMart probably won't stock them.

Best wishes.

Caught up with the man himself before the Willie week flute concert and got some snaps in the green room. This thread would be incomplete, flute forum and all, without him:

I ordered mine from Gerry last week, hope I get it soon! But for other out-of-Ireland people, Gerry is planning on getting the album up on Bandcamp later this month -- that might be the easiest / quickest way to get it.

Splendid, I'll order one. One of my first records ever was John, Julia and Billy, I'm so pleased that there's no accompaniment on this new CD.
