I find interesting some people don't like sessions, surely you can't really play tunes without knowing sessions...that is the whole point. Continue

Competitions?

Started Dec 28, 2011 0 Replies

There was mention in another thread and it got me thinking about Competitions. I personally place no weight on them at all, it doesn't interest me if someone has won a comp or not. It doesn't make me…Continue

I tried to do one before but it only shows up as a link, I can see everyone actually puts the video in the post, sorry - such a technophobe! Continue

"I'm not a fan to be honest, don't like the style much. And now I have someone to blame for writing that tune haha. But then again, I think airs sound good on uilleann pipes, so what would I know ;-)"

Brid Clarke replied to Gerry Murray's discussion Why no photo?
"Oh yeah. I have been hammered on the internet (the site we shall not mention) for daring to disagree with someone, about tunes, anyway - I later found out who they were, and there were some really famous trad musicians in the group who were saying…"

"I never put photos up, and that includes facebook, the internet is a dodgy place so I try to keep personal things out of it. "

Brid Clarke replied to Tony Lawless's discussion How frustrated are you with sessions ?
"It does take lots of practise, I remember when I was first starting out I had music written in ABCs. Anyhow I started lessons with a new fiddle teacher and she refused to teach me with music, I was so upset at the time, but realise now that she was…"

Brid Clarke replied to Tony Lawless's discussion How frustrated are you with sessions ?
"I find this interesting Anne, there are so many different versions of tunes out there, if I spent my time learning every different version for every different session, I'd never get anything else done! I find that most versions work well enough…"

Laurence Gray replied to Brid Clarke's discussion sessions
"I go to sessions mainly because I like playing music much better than having to sit there and listen to it.  On the other hand, though, it is nice to have some CD's of good music to listen to when driving somewhere on a…"

Brid Clarke replied to Dick Glasgow's discussion To thrash, or not to thrash ... that is the question!
"Yes-  I think it'd be really, really horrid if everyone played the same way. I love a good driving backer. ;-) "

Brid Clarke replied to Brid Clarke's discussion sessions
"You could learn every tune you have ever heard and never "fit in" with every session;-) I'm the same as you, I only learn tunes I like, not tunes that are played in sessions just because everyone else does. But at the end of the day -…"

Richard Sutor replied to Brid Clarke's discussion sessions
"I think there's a fear factor, sometimes with good cause. I've been lucky to have found 2 or 3 sessions in NYC that are welcoming, understanding and supporting. I was shy at first but then I figured that at the ripe old age of 66 if I…"
