Hi Russ.

Yes, Adrian (Jaff) is playing his A Whistle.

If you look closely, you'll see I have a Capo on the 2nd Fret of my Mandolin .... always a sucker for the easy option! :-)

Jaff lived in Australia for a few years & I think he picked it up over there.

Cheers,

Dick

Dick, really enjoyed your videos.  Thanks for posting the links to the notations.  Quick question, in clip no. 1, is Adrian playing an A whistle, couldn't' get quite a good enough look at it.

Glad you enjoyed them Connie.

These were filmed towards the end of last year.

I play with two of those musicians, a couple of times each week, but I only see the Piper every now & then.

Cheers,

Dick

Hi Dick, I just listened to all of these videos that you linked,  Every one of the performances is very well done! Well, I can certainly see why you and your mates were filmed for television! How long ago were these videos made?  Do you still play regularly with these gentlemen? Thanks. I really appreciate you sharing these, and I hope you will have them all uploaded into the video archive here on TradConnect! ~Connie

P.S. I'm also going to have to review your profile again! ;)

Yes of course Connie, here are the four clips. 

On a couple of them we played way too fast, but a couple of the guys were just a little nervous with the TV cameras so close & took off at a gallop, so unfortunately they ended up much faster than the music we usually play on a Friday night. Still, it was all a bit of fun ... & good publicity for this wonderful & historic session pub.

#1 Mandolin

#2 Concertina

#3 Tenor Guitar

#4 Hammered Dulcimer

Cheers,

Dick

Dick, do you have the video uploaded from the filming you did for the show? I would love to see it!

Connie, this was recorded in my own wee Session Pub down the road here in Ballycastle, Co. Antrim. We were in there & filmed too for the show that night. Since then, Stevie sold this Paragon with the Tom Cussens repro neck & I think he might have an Epiphone Recording A now. Cheers, Dick
