    Re: Brendan o'Regan mandolin playing

    I toured the USA with Brendan when he was a member of De Danann, back in 1983. A true wizard of the strings and I believe he became an accomplished studio producer. Great guy!

    Re: Alec Finn RIP

    A recent clip surfaced of these two genius musicians in action in 1988.

    The very best musicians in the world appear to do so little! Finn's accompaniment is just so right and groovy.

    Rarely does something as special as the brothers in Ye Vagabonds arrive on the music scene. I hope this pleases as much as it does me. Utterly wonderful. One hour of majestic songs and music.

    Gotoh string tree added as per Andy, and seems to help the sound of the E, and improves the break angle. Delighted!
