Hi Frank....sounds wonderful! love that Eb.... surely some fiddles on the list will show up, and happy to hear you don't mind a guitar turning up! I will try to learn an EASY harp tune in Eb too (beginner, but loving it!)... can you suggest something, or will you just play D configs a notch higher? That i can deal with if I get a little brave!
Have you gotten any tunes on the recorder?
We had a nice C-Session too down at the Byrne-Egan nuptials, those are fun also ...have you a C flute too?
See you Sunday!

Subject: Re: Eb session?
Calling all Catskills-goers: We have had a partial, not-always done, episodic tradition of playing an Eb session on the first Sunday evening, in McKenna's somewhere (often in the dining area.) Usually this would get going sometime after 9 PM. I will station myself at McKenna's on 7/13, around that time, Eb flute (and gorgeous new Sindt Eb whistle with silver barrel and narrow windway!) on hand in case there is a critical mass, i.e. more than one, wanting to play in the sharp key, er, I mean the key with the flats. Bodhranistas must tune up......capoed or retuned accompaniment is always a welcome plus. The success of the evening generally turns on the willingness of one or more fiddlers to challenge the longitudinal integrity of the instrument with tightened strings. I look forward to seeing you all.
