"Anyone planning to go to Willie Week this year? It would be fun to meet
up with some other Irtradders. I have been there once before (2004) and
was very lonely since I didnt know anyone and didnt know where to go for
sessions. Maybe someone who's been there a few times can give me some
pointers and tips. I'll be taking piping classes.
I know Thomas Johnson is usually there - are you going this year
Aye, probably, although other interests have emerged recently and crave
attention, Japan, an interest in building motorcycles, a newly acquired
old school style Harley Davidson, too cold to ride just now, still minus
degrees here, tried taking the bike to the coast and nearly froze, also
nearly ran aground on a muddy potholed back lane.
Last year we went to Miltown, but spent a lot of time in Doolin just
talking and hanging out, although we did play every day at least once,
in the "Blondes" and in the "Oceanview" in Miltown. Give us a shout,
don't be shy, if you see us, pipes-flute and fiddle, and we can hang
out, play some tunes, walk up and down looking for the perfect session.
You may also get to know folks in your piping class as well. Willie Week
can be a bit daunting if you're by yerself. Are you staying in Miltown?
