It's coming on two years since purchasing my present bouzouki (It was a gift from my wife, actually). As always happens, after time passes we all have a tendency to want "something better". Some of…Continue

Well...aside from trying to keep up a gigging schedule with my band, Crikwater, I’m heavily involved as co-chair in charge of stage-management and band booking for the South Buffalo Irish Festival (in two weeks on Sept 1)...busy getting all the final arrangements in place.  .... https://southbuffaloirishfestival.org/home

.....also been building a new humidity-controlled display closet for all of my instruments...my collection has grown to include 4 zouks (Nyberg, Hora, Luna, & this cool Alvarez guitar converted to zouk), an Eastman mandolin, a Takamine acoustic guitar, a ‘78 Cherry Sunburst Gibson Les Paul, 2 bodhrans & a few whistles and harmonicas...plus my kids’ instruments (a uke & 3/4 sized guitar)...I installed a spot lighting and am in the process of lining the interior with stained wood (pine bc it’s cheap & I couldn’t say no to 15 cents a board) & I have a nice heavy old oak door with windows that I’m using so one can view the instruments with the lights on....

To quote the wife, “there’s musical crap all over the house & it needs a home” ...I will post a pic of the “whole family” once they’re moved into their new home. 

Lots of other projects I’m into as well...including a new Baby boy..my family welcomed our newest addition (our 4th) last December..Declan Timothy just turned 8months old...

...also my other passion as a prof Firefighter with the City of Buffalo keeps me pretty busy too...

So, you could say I’ve been damn busy for 2018...now I just need to talk to the big guy upstairs and see if we can get this pesky 24 day extended...balance is key and there’s never enough time.

hahaha...you asked!

Hey Liam. Finally, a comment!!! Seems like members in ALL of my groups have no incentive to participate in comments, updates, postings, etc. At one point, I thought of discontinuing the groups but a part of me still enjoys the comradery that comes through in drips and drabs. Old members are off doing whatever, new members seem to join because the groups are here but don't participate in providing anything. I still get notices of comment entries or requests to join the groups and actually get excited when someone like yourself pops up in my email notification. Oh well. Enough of me bemoaning disappointments.

How've you been? Anything new going on with you? Myself??? I'm doing well, considering. Keeping myself active in my musical and personal life. But like most members I have nothing new to add. Again,....oh well. 

Great to see your name and brief comment. If ye got anything to add please do. Cheers,

Danny

Hey Diarmaid. Great to hear from you. I have to admit that I went to your profile page to re-familiarize myself with you. Glad I did. I listened to your video posting of "Set de Reels" (posted Abril 10th, 2014). Really enjoyed it immensely. I don't know how to transfer that performance to our group pages,....so I was wondering if you could post it here for our members to enjoy as well. I'm sure it would fare well,....maybe encourage some of our members to do the same.

Your little guy sounds like a handful of energy. Enjoy this time, as well as what's to come in both of your futures. Valencia must be awesome. My family comes from northern Spain: Galicia. Would love to visit someday and really explore the Celtic region of the country, as well as much of the interior.

Again, great to hear from you, and, again, think about posting some of your stuff here at the Bouzouki Players group pages. Vaya con Dios, mi amigo.

Danny

Hello everyone, thanks for the update email Domhnaill!

I'm procrastinating while supposedly writing student end of term reports for my English classes so I thought I'd drop in!

It's hot as all hell ere in Valencia, and 78% humidity to boot. I'm leaving the bouzouki in the case most of the time, but that also has something to do with my one year old son running around climbing and banging on things too. (he already has his own bodhran)

We are having our monthly session this saturday evening, so that'll be a nice chance to get it out for a run!

hope everyone's doing great!

Invitation to Join Us!! Please take some time to explore this group. With 51 members (to date) there's a bunch of stuff that some of you may find interesting. I, myself, enjoy going back to page ONE of our comment wall to see how much we've grown. With 21 pages of "Comments" it may take a little time to read through them, but here & there are some nuggets of information that may cause a seed of questions & answers to sprout. All are welcomed.

Happy New Year!  Hope all is well with all in the group.

Welcome, Jack Morrissey. Now that you're here take some time to browse through our Comment Wall, Discussion Forum, Links & Bouzouki Info Page, as well as our Members. Leave a few words about yourself so folks can get to know who you are. Drop a tune or two if you can. Hope to hear and read from you soon. Cheers,
