Feel free to come to the party and play a tune for St. Pat's day !

Mandy, thanks, I'll try to put something together for tomorrow 🙂 Unfortunately, I sliced my middle left finger while cooking yesterday. It's not on the tip, so if it doesn't start bleeding 🙁 it should be OK.

Way to go BillyG and Pierre.

Happy St. Paddy's day.   I am ashamed to admit... I don't think I know an Irish Tune.

Would love to see everyone join in.  🙂

I will look for a list of songs and see if I can just play one from sheet..Kinda cold turkey like. 

 

Happy St. Paddys!

I'm afraid I might be buried when blarney stones fall, after this miserable rendition of what Katy Adelson play as a beautiful traditional Irish tune.... Well I'm committed (or should be) 🙁 And DON'T ask me to smile like she does 😉

 @Fiddlerman Beautiful! 

@BillyG Great job! I can't help but smile watching your recordings. When can we have a Scottish party?

Here we go - Swallowtail Jig(ish)!

 

Editing to add: @Bob Ah, you beat me to it! Must've posted while I was waiting for mine to upload. Well done! I suggest everyone just skip mine and go back and rewatch Bob's. 😀

@AndieKae, you did fantastic. I recorded so many tries of this piece and never did get a "good" recording (the file I posted was numbered 118!!). Your version is really good, don't put yourself down. Keep up the good work.

Thank you, 

Bob
