I am a U.S. citizen living in Ireland. I play a Boehm silver flute but am learning Irish tunes because I play in a weekly open trad session at our local pub. I haven’t been able to transition yet to an Irish flute yet because my fingers just don’t reach the holes. In the meantime I am memorizing as many tunes as I can and the local musicians kindly put up with me. (If I could afford a wooden Boehm flute perhaps that would work.) I use The Session frequently to learn new music.
