First I heard of that and I don't think so Shels. Where did you hear that???



EDIT: Just to clarify. Guests on the 23rd are Flo Mc Sweeney and Dick Farrelly. ;)

Strum:

Who plays Harmonica on your recordings? There's no credit.

Thanks Strum, I love listening to the Harmonica, a teriffic instrument.
Do you know of any lessons for 7/8 year olds in The Borough? Perhaps you
would ask Mr. Byrne.

Sinead
I have asked around Navan and Drogheda and I cannot find anybody that gives lessons for the harmonica.

I was told this week to get a book by AAAAAAH!, cannot think of his name now, the Irish guy that plays Blues Harmonica.

Dublin chap.

It is less than €20 and comes with a CD Book and Mouthorgan.

There are some lesson on You Tube. I found Silent Night (don't laugh we all start somewhere), Dirty Old Town (very good for a sing song) and a few more.

Strum,

Depending on the time that Gullivers talk is over Wednesday night HID and I intend to wander up to your club if that is O.K. Good drink in a convivial atmosphere.

Just as well we never give out about anyone on this site! The degrees of separation decrease all the time.

Hello Alan,

It is going to turn out that I am related to you too. I have met so many long lost relatives on here. As Sinead says just as well we don't give out about anyone.

Great to have you back posting again I was feeling lonely as the Rocker.
