  2. My wife and I attended our firs slow session on Thursday night at the Redondo Beach Hennessey Pub. It was lots of fun, but our skill set is, apparently, slower than a slow session! Now we have a motivator to get our speed and settings perfect. Both our instruments seemed on the quite side in a pub setting, which was surprising. BTW, we found this group through the Meet-up Org., and there is also a Irish Language meet up immediately before the session. I'd like to cut and paste hot links to both, but seem unable to currently. New policy due to abuse?
  3. Congratulations! Awesome concertina.

    You don't know why your wife got you the circle of fifths T-shirt? What's your favorite drink? What's my favorite drink? Everything, that's why I quit.

  11. Very nice playing indeed. And lovely photos to accompany the video. Is there a Coble on the beach in the second photo?

    Concertina Earrings

    I just got a pair as a present to my wife for our anniversary. The photos really don't do them justice. They are simply exquisite. Thank you Alex!
