While there is no doubt , that I got here from Old Country and Western then Bluegrass , a few romps with Old Time and then New England
Style fiddling , and now ITM ( Irish Traditional Music .)
I still stop an ask how did I get from hear to there ? Okay it does not matter , The journey that music has taken me in the course off 25 years has been
the best part of my life , more then that it is a part of who I am .
My goals very simple , enjoy it more each day , and cherish the friends I have made , and to keep challenging myself .
Being Irish I feel proud , and a deep connection to ITM especially because my family can be traced back to Co. Sligo . This may not help me
play better , but It feels good .
So as I build a repertoire of Reels , Jigs , Slides and all the other types of tunes . I wonder if I can sustain this obsession ?
So what is on the list as of now :
Down the Bow
Bill Sullivan's Polka
The Britches Full of Stitches
Saddle the Pony
The Cannaughtman's Rambles
While I can play the first four there is still work to do
The last two I am still working on the notes , but they are getting there .
See You Soon
