Catskill Irish Arts Week 2017

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,


Priscilla and I are here...We saw David Colpitts this morning. He is actually here to do mandolin, but I'm sure he still plays some concertina. Priscilla is in Doug Barr's morning Basic concertina class, and as I guessed from such an experienced teacher, he has broken down what he is doing in a useful way. It also sounds like he knows how to handle all kinds of students (no surprise for a former NYC school teacher). I've assured Priscilla that she'll learn more than she thinks and will be able to relax after a few days. Me, I've gone to the dark side and am taking uilleann pipes. Let's just say you concertina players have no ideas what a cranky instrument is like until you've tried dealing with reeds made of donax cane instead of steel or brass. B) Keep playin'
