And you Val, how are things?
Good to hear from you Nick, Val.
Best wishes to you Nick, and family for 2016. Val.
Listening to some of your music on Soundcloud, amazing stuff Nick, a real master.
If he's as musical as his Da he is well fit to play with Joe O' Dowds grandson.
Soundcloud.com amazing compositions and plying Nick.
How are all in Sligo this Saturday morning Nick. Val.
Unique sound from a very unique player, Wonderful stuff Nick.
Hear you are playing a storm up there Nick, and converting a lot in doing so. Hope you get to play a few tunes Nick. Enjoy, Val.
Hi Nick..That's great. As you might have guessed, I got in touch with Rick Epping and he invited us to stay a day or two. I don't have a phone yet, but I'll call ya once I arrive and pick up a burn phone.Drop by one of the gigs if you get a chance, I promise you won't hear music like we play anywhere else.Take care!
Sounds good Nick.
Hello Nick, and Happy New Year to all the O'Sullivans. I doubt very much if I'll be up for the Fleadh. Prefer to avoid the huge crowds, they don't suit dulcimers. Could find an excuse to visit Sligo some time this year, will keep you posted, Val.
Hi Nick, No, I wasn't in Cork for the dulcimer festivals in the early 2000's. I had moved back to the states in 1994. I briefly visited back to Cork in 2003 and played in a couple of pub sessions in Co. Cork and Co. Kerry, and the mtn. dulcimer was quite a novelty to everyone!
Hi Nick, I have a real connection with Ireland, as I lived in Co. Cork for 10 years. Once I was back in the states, here in Tallahassee, Florida, I was on the board of the Tallahassee/Sligo Sister City program. Sure would like to connect sometime!
All the best,
Cabin Hill Music
Nick, hope Sligo Live give you an opportunity to highlight the dulcimer and your wonderful ability to play.
WOW - that Galax is too pretty
Rosewood !!! How the rich do live LOL, is that a sovereign or a euro in the head of that new dulcimer ???? (and I do know the answer, I used the same coin set in the boss of a bodhran a few years back) Nik, I think that he posted a tune on this a while back, and it had me fooled !
best wishes to you both
thanks for your info. I have offered the person a Nonsuch loan instrument, she may well take me up on this.
I have a Rumanian instrument myself bought from The Music Room, which is OK, I don't know if the Hobgoblin ones are the same but I would be less comfortable with Hobgoblin as they have dreadful hammered dulcimers! How long ago was it you tried one, as people have said the Rumanian ones have got better. I bought mine 18 months ago
Love both your new tunes.Une Jeune Pucelle is the basis for the Huron Carol, sung here and in Canada in French and English. Nice to hear such an ancient sounding rendition. It's magical.
