But it's on Irish whistle and vocals :|
Hi Honeyboy, I'm in Belfast. Always nice to hear of people making the effort to visit our part of the world! It's been very nice the last couple of days but you've heard what it's like, we can have every kind of weather in the course of an afternoon so be prepared. PM me if you like for any info and I'll see if I can help. Have a good trip!All of my St.Patrick's day gigs over the years were with blues bands,[rolleyes] although the lead singer would sing Irish drinking songs at the beginning of each set. I've got one this Wed., but it's our 50's/ 60's group. However, as a salute to our Irish listeners, we will be playing Danny Boy and Brown Eyed Girl.
Incidently, I'll be leaving for Belfast via Dublin on April 12th for 6 days with my church worship team. We'll be staying in the homes of some of the church people there so my only cost is the plane fare, which unfortunatly doubled in price the day before I bought my ticket. I've been watching all the PBS travel shows this week which featured all the past Ireland shows just to get a feel for the Emerald Island. Hopefully I'll have a "wee bit" of time to do some exploring and check out the local traditional music scene. Anyone out there from Belfast?
