Hello Mike, I'm afraid that despite all my efforts I'm not having much luck setting up some Sean Nos singing sessions here in the Netherlands, most people here are convinced you need music when you sing. I sing Sean Nos style at the few Folk sessions that are around here,in fact I'm starting anew session this Sunday at a restaurant here in Hellevoetsluis, but I'm quite sure most of the performers will play instruments and maybe a bit of accompaniedsinging. . But I do  keep following your blogs.

I couldn't figure out why the tracks weren't producing sound so I posted my sean-nos songs via my sound cloud link to my profile. That should do it for now. I am getting ready to go back into the studio to record some more. Sláinte, Fiona
