  • Re: Multiple Instruments

    I don't play all those instruments at any one session, they're just a variety that I can pick from depending on what I feel like playing. Mainly fiddle (and the whistle that fits in the case). It would be such a pain to try to carry them all around. more…

  • Multiple Instruments

    I was just wondering how many people play multiple instruments (at session level). And what different instruments are they? There seem to be some weird combinations around my town, so I was wondering what other people played. more…

  • Re: Who likes Flogging Molly out there?

  • Local color

    This is one of the over-played tunes in my group of friends, but we've messed with it and written a mafor version. I don't have the music as no one has written it up, but it sounds quite amusing. more…
