Ralph Jordan Posted June 10, 2010 Share Posted June 10, 2010 Hallo Al, yes I am pleased to be here and see so much "action" taking place. I hav'nt been in a musical void, as such, but certainly been seperated from "Concertina life", other than the 14 years of living in Co. Clare that is. I am now back playing EC almost full time because we needed a different sound in our local Limousin trad group. I had started to use my little treble to play with our neighbour's Chabrette (in A) and since I now have the loan of a wonderfull Baritone/Treble Aeola I am using that to add Viola and Cello sounds, between the Hurdy Gurdies/Cornemuses/Accordions which all use the G/C tuning in this area. So between the Irish sessions and the French Bals, I am not getting time to play my Uilleann pipes or H/gurdies. I cannot put faces to those names you mentioned, but I am sure I know them and am happy they are all well and look forward to a reunion. Hi Irene, Hospital visit...... I could do with one of those today, which is why I am on the web and not working. The forth coming CD by Ralph.... wow, will that not be something to look forward to indeed. Sorry there is nothing here from me on concertina band records, my memory does not have that piece of information. Cheers, Geoff. Hi Geoff. Mmmm memory is a funny thing...I started in 1975 not 1973, did I? Damn, will have to go and alter the sleeve notes!! I have no recollection of playing "In the Mood" !!!Did I really? Very much doubt if I could play it today! Yes indeed. Solo CD almost ready to go off to print. 17 tracks of audio delights. Rest assured, I will be going into Hard Sell mode when it appears. (I'm a pensioner after all) Will accept Euros...(In a wheelbarrow!) I think you are wrong BTW as to when we last met. I remember watching you playing with Packie Byrne at Sidmouth one lunchtime in a garden? Late 80s' early 90s'? No matter. great to be in touch again. Still bump into Graham Shelver from time to time. He's still playing Will talk again soon. Ralphie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
