I just came across two Bb/F sound files on this page.

I wondered where I might hear more on the Bb/F?

I always, always enjoy tuning my Fiddle down to play with Flat Uilleann Pipes & I remember

playing in a 'C' session at Derrygonnelly one year for 12 hours.

It was a truly magical experience, with flat Pipes, C Flute, 3 Fiddles tuned down & Guitar.

It was a real honour & privilege for me to have been part of that session. B)

 

Concert D sounds so harsh, after playing in C, don't you think?

As for playing up in Eb, it just sounds so thin, I feel like my ears are going to start bleeding! :o

 

Cheers

Hi Dick,

 

I don't play in an Irish style, but have several recordings on my YouTube channel:

I will set up a Playlist titled "Jeffries Anglo", and move a few recordings in there.

 

Regards,

Peter.

 

Hey Peter, that's very kind of you. :D

 

I look forward to checking them out.

 

You certainly have posted a lot of videos there & I suspect it'd take me a good while

to work out where all the Bb ones were!

 

Cheers

Dick

Tim Collins is playing a Bb/F Jeffries in tracks 5, 6, 10, and 13 of the CD "Dancing On Silver."

Thanks Laitch, & how gorgeous does the Concertina sound on those tracks eh.

Yes, I'm going to have to buy that CD, but I notice a lot of on-line stores are out of stock!

I guess I'll need to go shop at Custys: http://www.custysmusic.com/

 

Hi Dick,I think Gearoid O hallmhurain plays a Bb/F Jeffries in a lot of his recordings.Regards David.

Thanks David.

I did find a nice YouTube of Gearoid, which I'm sure you have all seen:

 

So yes, another man's CDs I'll need to buy then.

 

Cheers

Dick
