Love the cellist.

 

The baritone is nice, but the sound sort of gets lost.

 

Oh my, in this video it looks like he's playing one of those spectacular Jeffries with metal end frames.  Be still my heart.

I notice that Eggleston is playing the cello without the use of the endpin. It takes one to know one.

So I distributed the first link to the cello section I play in (a local community orchestra), and it turns out two of my colleagues have met Mr. Eggleston. Seems he played at the Old Songs Festival near here not too long ago.

Old songs is a fantastic venue/organisation. Every time I see/hear Cormac Begley play, his footwork reminds me of fiddle players in quebecois music, who will sometimes use a flat maple board to tap their feet with, providing a percussive element to the music. I have even seen these boards set up with their own mic. Fantastic! In fact it was a fiddler at old songs who I saw do this. Yves Lambert Trio, I believe. Ah, yes, here is an example, though the fiddler is playing a mandolin on this tune. https://www.youtube....h?v=tCMb-MSOEC4

Bringing up this one for a moment as I couldn't help noticing the lads are  doing concerts at next month. Bought tickets and looking forward. :)

Can you link to information and a schedule? A quick Google turns up information from last year but I'm not immediately finding anything about upcoming shows. (Are any of them in England by chance, or just Ireland? I'm intrigued, but it'll have to be fairly close to home for me to make one.)

I can't find a schedule, I even waded into Facebook but their page comes up with nothing. There are concerts at least in Dingle, Carrick on Shannon and Tulla,  possibly  others I failed to spot. All in Ireland.
