Here are three YouTube videos where my fiddling skills, such as they are, can be seen. Fortunately in all cases, I'm playing with far, far better musicians than myself ... always a good idea I find!
In the first, I'm playing with a well known Co. Antrim musician & excellent Uillean Piper, John Hughes.
In the next two I'm playing with two well know musicians from Co. Fermanagh. You might know Ciaran Curran from the group Altan

Great stuff, Ptarmigan. What a sound!

Thanks Johnny, Luckily, for my reputation ... & your ears, the Pipes are quite dominant in that clip! Cheers Dick

Well, that's some pretty music on that video. And nice to see you "live". Though it's hard to see. The more I write with you, the more I become curious what you look like. I know that you have a beard and are 56 like myself. Those two things we have in common aside from the interest in old time music :-) Take a look at my site when you get the time ( and your computer working). I have uploaded 6 more tunes since yesterday. Mostly songs, as I have no decent recordings with myself on fiddle. And you know. I like songs :-) Now back to the Old Time Forum (Europe)

What do I look like! Well, just imagine Santa Claus, red nose & big fat belly, but .... with a short white beard - that's me! Ho Ho Ho :-)
