Hi folks,

One of my favorite Irish musicians will be in the area beginning of November. His name is Gerry O'Beirne, and he puts on a very nice evening of original music. He has been known to spin a yarn or two, and his comments about his music are enlightening and entertaining.

I'm trying to put together a list of 20 or so people who would be willing to pay $15-$20 to come to our 100-year-old farm house in Saratoga to enjoy a fine night of Celtic music. The date for the house concert is Saturday, November 1 at 7:30 in the evening.

To reserve your seat(s) you can msg me here or by email, kagaugler at yahoo dot com. I'll confirm your reservations and send you instructions on how to get here, etc. Thanks!

Not exactly the bod ran but certainly percussive. I had the great pleasure to see Chris play here in Houston recently. He was magnificent!

  Thanks very much Ed.  This is just what I needed to see.

  I found a few more interesting ideas as well..............

 I could see the mic on Smither's feet (in between folks obstructing the camera view)...........http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8xSOODkGJ64.  

     Boy, he's great!

Watch some Chris Smither video. He mics a piece of wood and uses his feet.

Thanks for the kind comments Brian and Bill,

Bill, not sure what to suggest for your foot drum. I have seen a guy using a tambourine in an Irish session for what your suggesting...but it was kinda annoying! Maybe a tambourine without the bells would work? Or just put on a pair of heavy boots and tap your foot real heavy. I know some players who's foot stomping is so hard they don't need any extra percussion!
