With almost two weeks to go, the bad news is that:

 

'.....it grows further by the day'

 

 

Hope that Stephen's talk is well supported.

 

Regards,

Peter.

I'm going to go to this! I'm looking forward to it!

Can you, with Stephen's permission, record the talk, Fernando?

 

Chris

 

I don't mind doing it Chirs, but I don't have any device for that purpose. Maybe I can use my mobile, I have a memory card in it, I think it will be enough to record all the talk. I don't know about the battery... this talk is going to be 3 hours or so...

Gosh, that's a l...o...n...g talk, Fernando. Sounds like you might need an old-fashioned reel to reel tape recorder for the purpose! (or a modern digital Edirol) Maybe Stephen has the means to record some or all of it. Perhaps you could ask him? :)

Wouldn't it be nice if Stephen actually recorded a Video of his talk! ;)

 

I'm quite sure a lot of enthusiasts wouldn't mind coughing up for a copy ... myself included. B)

I will ask him Chris, I he agrees I will be ready for recording with my mobile. But I have no camera for this, only the mobile. I will have to think in something to say, I want to be in the recording! If I cannot think of anything, I will cough or something :D

Sorry guys, but I made a big mistake! I'm writing this in a hostel in Ennis just besides the Clare County Library. I thought the talk was going to be there! I got confused because I didn't read well the announcement in facebook. Here is more clear, I can see that the talk is in Milltown Malbay! this is not too far from where I am, 20 miles far. But I don't have car, and I don't know how I'm supposed to go to Galway early in the morning from there...

 

What a pity! I was ready to record the talk...

 

Well, I will stay in this hostel, and now I'm going to look for a session!

Steve hauled out a part of 'the collection' The ones in the photographs are a mouthblown predecessor/prototype by Wheatstone and the very first Wheatstone attempt at concertina. There was an array of other instruments on display.
