Opisthokont

tunebook 28 tunes.

Professionally, I’m a journeyman biologist (the name "Opisthokont" is a reference to such interests). Avocationally, I’m a multi-instrumentalist on strings (bass, guitar, mando, uke, violin) and occasional woodwinds (principally but not exclusively recorder) who has discovered the tinwhistle. I’ve always enjoyed ITM but hadn’t thought about playing it until recently (the tinwhistle was my gateway drug there). I’m based in NYC at the moment, and I’ve been joining the group at Sláinte on Tuesdays, though only occasionally playing with them — I still have a lot of tunes to learn, for which this repository has been amazing.
