My name is Ismael and I am from Malaga (Spain), though I live in Granada (Spain). It is strange for a Spaniard to become a member of your community, I guess, but I love Ireland and its music, especially traditional folk.
I play double bass in a bluegrass-folk band called Cuestabajo Folk ( and also bossa-jazz in a band called Mr.Samba Lazy Band. Also, I have started playing mandolin and Irish bouzouki very recently following Mr Declan Plummer website lessons and I have reached you through his site.
I don’t think I can make many contributions to your community, due to my backgrounds, but I hope I will learn a lot by reading the entries and listening to the tunes.
Thanks for your good work.
