Here is what Michael had to say about…Continue

I also got more details, among them Eamon…Continue

Two of my favourite artists (Conal O'Grada and Colm Murphy) on two of my favourite instruments (Flute and Bodhrán)

Found a video today on how to improve a "Ebay/Pakistani/tourist" € 40 bodhrán. Great stuff, and great results for little effort.
