Father Tulane Blacktop: Just a silly bogus name, really, but I like it. (Say three Hail Bloody Mary’s and call me in the morning…that sort of thing).
Anyway, I am from West (By God) Virginia, by way of Virginia, Quebec, Ontario, and currently Los Angeles California. I have been playing Irish music for about 20 years, and have played in sessions for 15. I play whistles, concertina, and button accordion, and on occasion bust out the Great highland Bagpipes.
I got into Irish/Celtic music via The Pogues and then the Clancy Brothers and the Dubliners. This led me to dig deeper, and now I play!
