USA our 1st Amendment, freedom of speech...seriously!

You can't say anything you want at work, in school, in the Mall, or any other institution, because the right to free speech is only allowed in public places like the street, or a public park ( with some restrictions ).

But outside the USA there are few places where such rights exist, or are respected, for example 'Speakers Corner' London.

And on the Internet there is nearly no such a thing, even-though it is not in anybody's country or under their authority.



So when…

'The Reel Note' CD by The Mulcahy Family released July 2016

I have gotten several lovely Trad CDs over the last few seasons and enjoy them immensely. But my favorite is Irish Flute music.



So when I learn that the Mulcahy's have a new CD I am all ears knowing how great a Flute player Louise is. It was a shock to me the last time,  I did not want again to pay postage from Ireland. So when…

'Forget Me Not Rose Flanagan & Laura Byrne' CD

I used love listening to Andy McGann and Paddy Reynolds. I still have a tape of them  in my collection. So when at an event I got a free display of similar music from Rose Flanagan, my ear candy antenna popped out recognizing the signature sound of the NY Irish scene so well expressed in the McGann era.

Later, on Facebook, I ran across Rose posting on unrelated news.…

Back to the Uilleann Pipe Chanter; & Flute making

I am not a blogger but...

these last few weeks the weather became ideal for Piping and OC I have a practice set.



So after over a decade of none, I began to run over some of the pieces I used love to work on.



Course I do not take this to sessions, or even out, just at home with me and the cat and dogs, the odd passer by stopping to listen to the Saxophone ... lol

It is the USA, and I am in S Texas where nearly nobody knows what a Uilleann Pipes set is, never…

Tuning The Road, Louise Mulcahy Flute, Uilleann Pipes & Whistle, CD 2014

I have followed the Mulcahy family for a long time, first on YouTube and such, then reading about them on Tradzines. Consisting of Mick, father, and daughters Michele and Louise, they seemed to me to be so good I had to keep after their performance for more of what is something to look forwards to, like the music of the house dances back in the old days.

One clip, Jig…
