A plea for help.
I’m having a real crisis with the music. Indeed, I was playing in a ceilidh the other day when halfway through a tune I thought "what am I doing here?" and practically gave up. All the dancers looked like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B69umIClRqs .
Sessions are no fun (partly because none of us have any clue if what we’re doing is legal or not), I’m not sure what English folk music is so can’t have a go at something new, and am sorely tempted to give up the fiddle and banjo and learn the spoons.
Joking aside, I’m in one of those places musicians often find themselves in, seeking inspiration. So this is a plea, for videos, albums and stories, to help me out of this rut and show me that all is not lost.
