Re: Posting clips

Re: Grey Larsen and tone.

It is unfortunate that Grey has been thrown into the cage by a person who is very closed minded about flute styles and regional differences. I know Grey personally, and he would be uncomfortable to know the kind of verbal slapping he was receiving from a few people. I know we are entitled to our own...

Re: Snare drum in ceili bands

Hey all, I play in the Old Bay Ceili Band that competed last year in the Fleadh. I think that the Drums get a bad wrap due to it's so easy to make fun of them. Hell, I make fun of them and I am first and foremost a drummer by trade. I try and keep the swing in the music and follow the melody line as...

Re: Antique versus new irish flute

I've written this many times now: unless you are quite sure (who can be?) that you will never want to play a keyed flute, you're better off starting on one and learning to use the keys from the beginning. You can probably afford an antique to do this, but not a brand new 8-keyer. With patience and ...

Re: Antique versus new irish flute

It appears to depend on the design of the flute. For instance, flutes having some sort of internal metal sleeving apparently tend to suffer cracking troubles, more likely than those without. Most modern makers apparently avoid such sleeving, or keep it to a minimum, perhaps for just such a reason. ...

Re: Posting clips

James,

thanks for posting your setting of Swinging on a Gate. That setting is very close to the one we play around here. I love the ending.

Andy, is Buttermilk a jig or a reel. For some reason I am thinking it's a reel. :boggle:

Re: USA Sessions: Do they get lost in translation?

Sessions with rules, to me, seem to be that way either out of necessity or an individual or group's need to control. For an example of necessity, some areas in the states may be more prone to folks showing up with djembes, shaker eggs, groups of bodhrans, etc. I know in my locale there are a LOT of...
