Cork Dulcimer Fest Concert - June 27, 2003

"It's tail-waggin' good!"

 


After supper, we headed off to St. Fin Barre's, the Church of Ireland Cathedral in Cork.  WOW!  Jem Moore, Bob Force, Seamus Brady and Tomo Yamaguchi!  What a line-up!  All different, all wonderful musicians, all inspiring!  And the acoustics in the sanctuary didn't hurt much either, even if Bob Force had to hold back some.

Afterwards, there was a performance at a pub near the apartments, Bachelor's on the Quay, by Aaron Spectre who builds dance grooves on his laptop, and plays hammered dulcimer over them - a very unusual use of the dulcimer in my experience.

There was a session at Christie's apartment until the wee hours.  I had to stop because I literally couldn't hold the bodhran tipper any longer, nor keep my eyes open.  That was about 3:00 or 3:30AM.  But then, when I got to the room, Brandy and I talked until about 4:00AM.  Thankfully, I didn't have anything terribly responsible to do the next day.
