C & F's own <A HREF="http://mysite.wanadoo-members.co.uk/trad_irish_harmonica">Steve Shaw</A> is a strong proponent of this art.

I did a gig at the Feakle festival last summer with Mick Kinsella and thoroughly enjoyed that. He's brilliant. We'll be doing a bit more next August.

A good listen would be the CD he did with Rick Epping and Brendan Power : Triple Harp Byepass

PlayingTed Anderson's double reed chanter sounds like a harp or concertina that has reeds that are in tune...almost-in phase then out.

Don Meade won All-Ireland on the Harmonica and is a fantastic musician. He playes the banjo, flute and probably others that I don't know of.

In addition, if anyone is interested, he is the man behind New York City's Blarney Star Productions that many of us have been fortunate beneficiaries of and appreciate, very involved with Irish Arts Week in the Catskils, among other things. He is also quite the historian or Irish music, probably one of the most knowledgable that I have come accross universely across Ireland, the states, etc. I think that Don has been recording well know ITM musicians for some years and probably has quite the collection of live music. I wish that he would record himself as well.

I have that CD (by way of the lovely Ms. Skinner) and I thoroughly enjoy it.

Doesn't this thread belong on the World Winds or Squeezeboxes forum?
