    Re: Playing with others of different skill levels

    I really prefer to play with folks a bit ahead of me. I like a jam where I don't know about 2/3 of the tunes. I like being stretched.

    That said, it is only a preference, and I tend to play with...

    Re: Birmingham tradfest 2019 anyone?

    That's a really great line-up Paul. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. If I didn't have other things on I might even go to it myself.

    Re: post a video of yourself

    Since there's violins, a ruan and a bandurria above, hopefully this is OK despite the lack of mandos (feel free to delete if not).
