  3. Update on "The Irish Mandolin" - and other stories

    Hi all...

    I hope everyone is staying safe and sane in these disrupting and troubling times.

    I thought I'd take the opportunity to give an update on The Irish Mandolin, the website I started to...
  4. Re: Best Celtic Mandolin around ~£500($700)?

    Wow Ray ... didn’t 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! ...
  5. Re: Best Celtic Mandolin around ~£500($700)?

    Just across the road from Hobgoblin is Ivor Mairants. According to their website, they have an Eastman MD314 for sale for under £600. See...

    One other thing for today...

    I've created a section within the site to showcase some of my own compositions. I'd be interested to know what people think of these tunes. I've said a little bit in...

    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...
  9. Re: sad news, Arty McGlynn passed today...

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

    Re: Back in action

    Good to hear from you Kevin. It’s 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!). I’m not sure that in those days...

    Re: Back in action

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

    @Kookaburra. You’ve 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...
  15. 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

    Thanks Tim. That’s really nice to hear. I didn’t know that my obsession of the time was inspiring others. I hope the new site has a similar effect in due course. Great to hear from you. Aidan

    Re: Back in action

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

    The priority over the...

    Re: Mr. (Mandolin) Mercedes

    The mandolin player may well have been Brendan himself. He’s 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 “Arthur McBride” 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...
