Hi Iris: Anything you want to do on harp, we will play, or if we don't know it, we will drone.....I had a C, but I sold it and haven't picked up another. Now C whistles are another matter: In Clarkes alone, I have 8, some from the 19th C. (tuned to a different Hz C than nowadays.) I may have to bring some C whistles, just in case.

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.> Frank Claudy
