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.

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.com/watch?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.

Bumping this subject up one more time after an entertaining afternoon in sunny Tulla. The venue was Cnoc na Gaoithe, a fine former convent building recently converted to a cultural centre, the concert taking place in a side room, the small stage in a little alcove that was once (I assume) a small chapel, its ceiling  decorated, with some very apppropriate. cherubs. A small audience of around forty, older local people, young East Clare musicians who had just finished their classes (Frankie Gavin was taking a fiddle class in another room, before his concert with Noel Hill tonight), a few musicians keeping a low profile. Nice and relaxed. Good fun.

Interesting bit about one of the Bass concertinas, Dipper bass6, that has a set of levers that convert it instantly from bisonoric to unisonoric and adds a facility for some rigorous note bending.

Whoa, thank you, roving eye.  These are so nice.  That carpet-bag full of concertinas that Cormac lugs around is the GREATEST.  This shade of robin's-egg blue on the walls is perhaps my favorite color, and excellent way to take a convent to its next existential phase.   Can't get over that fresco of a cherub with a CONCERTINA!

Thanks C.  This one is proving to be quite the persistent earworm: Fluffy Arabian Cat Disease

Was looking at how you managed to swipe my signature, and it reminded me how true the sentiment of it is too, music does always give me a boost. Yesterday was a good day.

They just wrapped up a short tour of Ireland! I pleaded for a US tour, fingers crossed! I know that Rushed has also played the Greyfox music festival, which overlaps with Irish Arts Week, only a few miles from each other. I think he played Greyfox with Crooked Still. I sure hope they make it stateside, but I understand that it is very difficult for musicians from Ireland to make any money doing it "on the books" as a touring musician.
