Re: Feile an Earraigh, West Belfast

Hope to see you there miss Kerr, I take it there may be a possibility of you having a few tunes? Myself, Breandan, Andy and a couple of others are playing on the Saturday before it finishes, why dont you call in to the Red Devil, I`ll even keep you a seat if you want. Actually come to think of it, I cant remember the last time I had tunes with you. Hope you`re keeping well.

Hi Lára and Maria

Sorry I’m going to miss this one. Tarrrrrrrrrrnation!
I spotted a wee photo on the website -would that be Paul Conlon on banjo, Gary Duffy on flute and Paddy O’Hare hanging his head in shame over his piping? :¬)

I’ll be home over Easter - anyone about for a couple of tunes?

Wait a minute Maria, did we meet at Madden’s on Monday night in November, or was that Sunday night? My wife and I were in town visiting my brother Martin and family for Thanksgiving….Brendan was there as well.

Me? Forget to have a tune? We had a great time, and thanks for hosting us. Kate especially loved sitting in with some great fluters (not that I didn’t)!! We hope to see you next time we are in town.

Tell you what, it was great to see more fiddlers in the place, I must say, your wife is a very tasteful player, I was sorry that I didnt get a chance to hear her properly, Both of you are welcome back any time, but this time we`ll make a night of it.

Re: Feile an Earraigh, West Belfast

I’ll remember to bring the odour eaters for stevie.

Re: Feile an Earraigh, West Belfast

Lara, Maria, etc.

Coming up shortly now - will see youse all on Saturday!

BTW I’m with Lara on this ‘lost’ mojo - anyone who can belt out Richard Dwyer’s etc isn’t missing anything in my book!

In particular I remember a crazy night in Maddens a couple of years back, about 50 musicians up from the country, and yerself beatin’ out the tunes over the lot of them…

Later…
