Warm Feelings

 I have been bringing out old CDs and MP3s again. It is a weekend and as usual it is a blast from the past.If I look at my Clannad catalog I realize it will take me hours upon hours just to listen to everything they recorded, from full length albums to compilations and EPs. Most people probably think that we you say Irish traditional music, it means a kind of music that is mournful and something that you play on funerals. Will they can't be really wrong. But that is just one fourth of the…

Reassured

I have a keyless 'D' concert flute by Sam Murray in the making, and it's 14 days overdue delivery.

I was concerned and didn't get a reply to my mails so phoned Sam yesterday. He explained to me that his son/s do all the internet/mail communication, and Sean was away at the moment, hence no answer to my mails.

He told me to rest assured i will get the flute sometime next week, the reason for the delay was that he wasn't quite happy with one of the sections, so he made a new one…

Finding My Way Around

  There is a kind of glow that happens when you meet a new friend. There is a sense of anticipation and wonder. We always start somewhere the way we end. TradConnect is like that. It is a community of musicians and music lover promoting traditional Irish music.

  It came as a surprise when Tony posted a link on my blog. I always try to click on the profile of whoever has contributed their thoughts. Then I saw this site. Nanvigating is easy, and links are all placed just under the…

About me

Hi!

My name is Emily, and I play the fiddle, mandolin, and some guitar. I play some Irish music, and really enjoy listening to it. 

I am the 6th child of 10. I live out in the country, love being outside, and during the summer, I enjoy swimming a lot. I am learning to ride horses at my neighbor's, and am also helping her to train one of her green-broke horses. Once a month, my sisters and I play music for the hymns at Church. I am very devoted the the Lord, and am extremely…

Having a retro/stop and listen-day.

Started thinking today, after a mail conversation with Christian Hedwitschak, a nice funny dude btw, about development in technology etc. and arrived at the conclusion that for me personally it doesn't get any better than the following clip, featuring basically no-frills instruments, just loads of skill.…

Quoted Moments

Was at Mayo Alive today in Temple Bar , Dublin. It's a promotion of all things "Mayo". Met a fellow Castlebar resident, Joanne Maloney who has compiled a most wonderful book called Quoted Moments. Stunning photography with wonderful inspiring quotes. Read it all over a nice coffee. So when you want some inspiration before picking up your instrument, have this on the table and read a couple of pages. You may find hidden depth in that tune. And even better, it's all in aid of Irish Cancer… Continue
