I wish I could just reach into the screen, grab the mandolin off the couch, and join you guys!  Nice playing, as always, Peter.  You make some of those ornamental flourishes look effortless.

I originally learned this wonderful old Irish harp air (O'Carolan's first composition) from Michael Rugg & Michael Hubbert of CapriTaurus about 1976. Fell for it hook, line & sinker, & have been enjoying playing it & evolving some variations ever since. 

Gregg Schneeman, my pal on the bowed psaltery--although only using  one bow here--pioneered playing with 2 bows, which has caught on in a big way in the world of bowed psalteries. 

Hope you enjoy it!
