Wishing I was playing #music tonight but glad I'm stuck at home instead of driving. Be safe everyone! PS How many instruments can you find? #uilleanpipes #irishtrad #session

Great three days playing with the lads at the North Texas Irish Fest in Dallas! It's always great to get time away from the farm, and crank out some great tunes and songs with best friends! Great time as always!

Friday night we attended a concert by the band Na Rosai , featuring Celtic music, from Portland, Oregon at the Hayloft in Salem, Oregon. Preston Howard is playing the uillean pipes (Irish bagpipes) in this video of his solo performance that night. He's pumping air with a pump with his right arm pressing it against that side. The air is filling the bladder under his left arm which is squeezing the bladder's air into a pipe with holes along its length. Fingers of both hands are rapidly covering and uncovering the holes to get the notes he wants played. His right wrist is pressing keys below it to play chords. He lifts the pipe up and then jams the opening at the bottom end into a pad on his leg to produce other sounds. And he's tapping his foot to maintain the beat. I find it challenging to rub my belly and pat my head and it doesn't sound nearly as good as he and his pipes do. He's a musical multitasker and he sounds great! #narosai #prestonhoward #uilleanpipes #uillean #pipes #musician #Hayloft #Portland #Salem #Oregon #salemoregon #performer

First lesson on the Uillean Pipes today, enjoyed it so much, my God their tough! #uilleanpipes #music #irishmusic #ireland #asproubros

Post concert...

After quite an uneventful week what a surprise came at the end of it. I purchased my first bodhrán. I've always been musical, I achieved grade 8 in drums at the age of 18 and after a brief but unsuccessful stint at DJ'ing I thought I would turn my attention towards traditional Irish music. Not to worry though my unionist friends, I am still a young unionist at heart and always will be. So to this I now say for God and Ulster and Erin go Bragh #Arlene #Bodhrán #Musician #GoodMan #IrishJig #TheLarkInTheMorning #UilleanPipes #CrossCommunityMusician
