"Hi Diarmaid, I use a .40 D'addario for the G. (.28; .16; .11 for the others) I found this works for me but it seems every bouzouki player I know has their own preferences!"

Yeah Brendan "The Fiddle" and John "The Accordion" Hendry. Brendan I am in touch with online but John shuns the E-Life. I have to talk to him on the phone or person to person when I am visiting. They had a session at the Loup for a good while, but Bryson's sound like a good venue. I suppose Joe Diamond is still knocking about  and playing a bit. He was one of my teachers at St. Pats way back when. What's the singing talent like these days?

Hey!!!  I LOVED ZoukFest!  If you get the chance you should definitely go!!  I hope I can go back next year.  I don't know if I ran into Peter (I'm horrible w names - It's very possible).  I did take two full classes taught by Luke Plumb, and yes, he was brilliant and delightful.  I cannot wait to practice all of the things I learned everyday :-)
