  1. Re: Best Celtic Mandolin around ~£500($700)?

    Wow Ray ... didnít know that. Shame. They stocked some very tasty instruments - mainly guitars - and were such a mainstay of the London music scene. Shows how often I get up west these days! ...

    Re: Back in action

    Just a note to say that I've been doing quite a bit of work recently on the site. Added a few new tunes, redesigned the layout a little following some advice from visitors, etc.

    However I'd like...
  6. Re: sad news, Arty McGlynn passed today...

    Very sad news indeed. Such an exceptional musician. That instantly recognisable, very individual style.

    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...

  11. 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...
  12. Pay The Reckoning's "Irish Mandolin" Webpage - Now Resurrected

    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

    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...

    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...

    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...
