Lovely stuff Kenny. I love the music of the Castle.

I got a great buzz when they regrouped some years ago:

Mick Hand, piano, Mick O Connor & Mick Tubridy flutes, James Keane box, John Kelly, John Dwyer, Seán Keane and Liam O Connor taking up their seats or filling in for deceased members, Aidan Vaughan played the drums on the occasion but can't be seen in the pic.
My brain hurts

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.

Brilliant links, thanks for sharing. It's really motivating me to practise playing faster. My old teacher always said to practise tunes (at home not in the pub!!) as fast as you can, then when you bring them back down to a proper speed they'll seem easy.
Instruments: Saltarelle Bourroche CBA (C system)
Music: mainly Irish, but also some Scottish / English / French

That's got to be counterproductive unless you're also practising them accurately!
