Turn About is Fair Play

I've spent plenty enough time shooting and posting footage of others here, it's only fair that I make an appearance as well, don't you think?

Josefin's Waltz from Sara Piazza on Vimeo.

Waiting for the Tuesday night Kitchen Session attendees to arrive while enjoying the great acoustics in my Edgartown kitchen. One of my favorite waltzes.

You may have noticed the new button I've added to the blog, over to the right, that reads, "TradConnect, Connecting Traditional Irish Musicians Across the World." This is a brand new site that my friend Jim, over in Larne, invited me to join. Jim is a fantastic fiddler, a huge friend of Irish Trad and has been a good friend to me (plus, he's really funny), so I generally do whatever he tells me to do. The site was started a couple of months ago by a seemingly affable fellow (anybody who likes my All-Stars and my photos and suggests I should come over to Dublin to photograph the scene there is an instant friend) by the name of Tony Lawless, single-handedly ("It's just me and my laptop trying to connect the world. Need Help, Help !!!!!"), and it appears to have potential. There are discussions (along the lines of the mustard board, minus the snark - so far) and videos, and much more. I happen to like the chat feature. Yesterday I was simultaneously chatting with Jim, in Ireland, and a woman in the Netherlands.

So go on over and click that thing and sign up. See you there.

Happy Birthday, Alex!

Andrea Beaton & Nuala Kennedy, with Owen Marshall

George and Emily Keith's next house concert, coming up on Saturday, June 4th in Medford looks like it will be fantastic. I'll be sorry to miss this one, for sure.
