I play chiefly tenor banjo and mandolin-family instruments, and dabble in others - whistle, button box (mostly C#/D), bouzouki, guitar, what have you.

I play at Irish and Scottish sessions, and play for set dances (Tom Finucane Ceili Band), Contra, and for Scottish and English Country Dance in various groups.

I post tune videos fairly often on my YouTube channel. Some slower-faster learning versions, some with onscreen sheet music, some just a tune or two. https://youtube.com/c/BenjaminHockenberry
We have a learner’s session in Rochester that rotates through a set of books by local accordionist Rick Muir. I post videos each month of his settings for the participants in the learner’s session here (slow and sometimes a bit rough): https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLRLNhqgUnuDoD6asvDcU3jnp2kHVT6wIC
