Sunday consisted mostly of playing the concertina, as my previous post attests to. At 8:00 pm I went to the Irish session at B.D. Riley's. By the end of it there were 5 fiddles, 2 flutes, a bodhran, a bazookee, and a guitar. Oh, and a concertina, I suppose. As usual I sat politely for most of it, and played only on occasion. But when I did play I played some of the new tunes I learned at camp. The Rolling Wave, Rolling in the Ryegrass, and a double shot of Kerry Polkas. I didn't screw them up too badly, either. And the really great thing was that I got a few complements. One guy said "That's a really nice sounding box. Where'd you get such a thing?" and someone else said "That was some great playing. It's about time we had a box player here at the session."

So it's not much really, but I'll take what I can get. Oh, and someone's going to e-mail me information on the UT slow sessions that are starting up soon.

Oh, and it may be of interest to someone, the very first thing I learned on the concertina was the Flying Fish Sailors version of "Do You Want Your Old Lobby Washed Down?", painstakenly hashed out on the top of an IBM parking garage.

Re: Garage playing...

Don't know about pictures, but I found my first post about it:

Ah, Hell. July 2001. It's been over 3 years since I started playing the concertina. I should be way better than this.
