Tell us something.: Been a fluter, citternist, and uilleann piper; committed now to the way of the harp.

Oh, yeah: also a mod here, not a spammer. A matter of opinion, perhaps.

This is the sort of stuff that got me hooked on Trad. :)

Tell us something.: I have played whistles and flutes for many years, but I am looking to get more serious with it. I mostly play Irish traditional music, but I want to expand into native american as well.

Cool tunes. Been a big DeDanann fan for many years. Had a question though. Listening to the first one, it sounded like two plucked string instruments playing together. The lineup lists a bouzouki and a banjo, but neither of those sounded like a banjo. Anybody know the instrumentation on that first one?
Cheers!

Hi - first tune starts as a bouzouki duet. I did add that as a comment "down the page".

Tell us something.: I'm an accordion player, I love playing Irish music. I also run a shop called Mudchutney selling folk music themed clothing, go take a look, I think it's brilliant! I'm registering because I love all things folky and music related so want to share the love, and read more and more about this kind of stuff. Is that enough? Feels weird writing like this...kind of like trying to be a real person, which obviously I am, but you don't know that.
