i have been playing guitar,mandolin,and bodhran for many years. Coming from a rock and blues background i now just play irish music-tunes that is.I play in Oxford at the exeter hall public house on wednesdays with my partner eve who plays concertina.I play a Lowden 010 and a joe foley mando from 94(one of his better ones).My Bodhran is a double skinner made by Brenden white who lives in amsterdam. My favourite all time irish recording is by De Dannan called selected jigs and reels and songs 1975 which is very very rare.
