Hi
I´m British (originally born in Yorkshire) and living and working in the Lisbon area of Portugal. I play a number of instruments (completely self taught where I have relied heavily on the internet especially Youtube) inlcuding (silver) transverse flute,tenor sax and have only fairly recently become interested in traditional/folk flutes including irish flutes and whistles. I have always loved the sound of irish music but have not been brave enough to tackle it until now. Having played the traditional silver flute for a few years I found myself using and enjoying the ornamentation typical of irish flute music at first without really realising it! I guess it just started to seep into music I was playing that needed a little lift or interest to the phrasing. So more recently I decided to give it a go although I´m not too sure what my poor neigbours are thinking! Nobody`s knocked at the door yet…
