    Re: Back in action

    Good to hear from you Kevin. Itís been a while. Not sure if anyone took any photos of the Lewisham gig - it was such a low key affair (but all the better for that!). Iím not sure that in those days...

    So, people, here we are several weeks later. And Iíve been busy recording and tabbing tunes and ting (as they say in South East London). So, just wondering, howís this new venture landing? Any more...
  4. Re: Pay The Reckoning's "Irish Mandolin" Webpage - Now Resurrecte

    @Kookaburra. Youíve made a good start, simply by following this site. No one here was born with a mandolin in our hands (although many of us rarely have one out of our hands these days...). So at...
  5. Pay The Reckoning's "Irish Mandolin" Webpage - Now Resurrected

    Apologies for a second post in a little while about the new website I've started to put together. I wouldn't normally run two posts about - ostensibly - the same topic in such quick succession. ...

    Oh and the same thing goes for yourself, Mr E... Hopefully fate will conspire to allow us to have a tune or two at some point. South of the river or elsewhere... Aidan

    Firstly thanks to all who have chipped in ideas about improving the site. Much appreciated, everyone.

    Re: Back in action

    Thanks all for the suggestions about adding mp3s rather than wav files to the site. Iíve now converted all the wavs to mp3 and Iíll upload all future tunes in mp3 format.

    The priority over the...

    Re: Mr. (Mandolin) Mercedes

    The mandolin player may well have been Brendan himself. Heís a fine fiddler and mandolinist. And a great actor - in both serious and comic parts. Not fair, is it, that one man should have so many...

    Re: Andy Irvine / Paul Brady

    I saw them a while back at The Barbican and it was a real highlight. Memories that will stay with me forever. To hear Brady sing ďArthur McBrideĒ live after all these years was monumental. And to...

    Good man, Martin. Glad that the old A-Jr is still living and breathing. I seem to remember a night in Camden Town where you joined us for a few tunes. Am I right - or am I constructing a memory...

    Re: Back in action

    Thanks for that John. The reason I opted for wav format rather than mp3 is that I have a few older pcs in the house and two them wonít play mp3s. I was chatting to a colleague who works in IT and...

    Back in action

    Hi all...

    I've had many - MANY! - years of inactivity online in virtually every sphere. The reasons? Well, the net. It just became too bickery, too troll-y, too uncivilised. At least the...

    Re: 5 new songs

    Interesting question above regarding the playing of sets as opposed to individual tunes. There is a degree of academic debate about when and where this first became established practice. However,...

    Just my couple of thoughts.

    Firstly, and this may seem a bit pedantic, for which apologies. I appreciate that in some parts of the US the words 'tune' and 'song' are interchangeable. ...

    Glad you like that tune. Sometimes, when I'm fiddling around with an instrument, these strings of notes just conjure themselves. I was very happy to have been the conduit via which this...
