I wish to join you with the nose flute and comb and paper for the All Britain fleadh ceoil coming up shortly. I am also very good on the swannee whistle. Can I enter the miscellaneous section on this wonderful instrument?

Rasher O'Houghlighan

Goodness gracious Dear Professor,

You left the Cajon and Didgeridoo off your list of "Devil's Instruments". Are you softening your stance ? :-)

Yes, Rasher has seen someone bring a Cajon to an Irish session and also someone with one of those clay jugs that you bang as a drum. Sadly, the wobble board,  invented by Rolf Harris, who is now in jail for child molesting, is not too fashionable on the Irish session scene at the moment. But Rasher has seen someone with a wash-board and thimbles, with cymbal and black bulb car horn attached.

Hi. That is one great video, with a brilliant  washboardium solo. Are you playing the washboardium yourself and,  if so, please bring your band to Grafton Street in Dublin, where you will make a mint, especially with that lady on the drum  & voice? Maybe the Rasher would be allowed to sit in on the tenor banjo, a true dixieland instrument.

I wish it were me! I'm a US Flag up-putter who plays the Bugle here in Texas before I raise old glory! Shay Conn ( Cornet ) is a grandchild of Benny Goodman :0) The Clarinettist is English.

Tuba Skinny does do tours, Oz, Germany, Switzerland, maybe you should give their agent a call?

They would need a big Irish venue to cover the cost of travel and lodging, I am guessing around 12 gs in Euros, but if they were on a UK tour half of that.

Hey hit em up!

I agree with Rasher - stunning band. Perhaps not suitable for an Irish music session but just stunning! Thanks Mickey

Would love to hear Tuba Skinny in Dublin, but, sadly Rasher lacks the cash to book them. Also, Texas bugle is not an instrument he has often heard played in Irish Trad sessions, but if you ever come to Europe it could prove a lively addition. Rasher can play the Yellow Rose of Texas on the banjo, but might have difficulty backing  the Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B. Here are the Andrews Sisters singing it. Rasher will keep practising.

Thank *you*!

I really appreciate the fun and happiness among the members of this site, which is such a pleasant change from others that I had to get away from! I guess it's the lovely Guinness and lassies in dear old Dublin?

I adore the funny names here! Well done, you lighten our poor ould immigrant hearts with your fun and make merry :0)

Glad you are feeling happy Mickey. Rasher will have to take you and the bugle to a session at O'Donoghues in Merrion Row, Dublin for a Guinness next time you are in town.

Meanwhile, here is Rolf Harris with The Beatles in the sixties playing the wobble board and singing "Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport." As you know, Rolf is now "tied down" in jail for 5 years himself for sexual assault on a little girl, his daughter's friend.
