Well back from sunny spain and now I am on the road with Danu doing their Christmas tour in the states.
We are in California right now and then we head to sunny Minnesota and then the east coast.
I will be back in Chicago fr a few weeks for Christmas and then next year rolls around .
I want to wish all of you a Happy Christmas and a safe new year. See you soon.
A lot of people have asked me what instruments I play so here is the beef.
I play Joe Foley instruments. I play a standard bouzouki which Joe made for me in 1984 and I still have it today and it is a great box. I wanted a bassier sound so we came up with a DORDAN which is basically a 8 string blarge, big body and longer neck. I tune it CGCG (hi to low). Still wanting more body to the sound I got Joe to make me a guitar shaped bouzouki or bousar amd it worked out great. I use headway electronics and my string gauges are 59, 34, 22, 18 .
I play low whistles made by Overton and Chieftain and regular whistles made by Micheal Burke and Copeland. My pipes are a mixed set of a Davy Spillane chanter with Matt Kiernan Drones and Dan Dowd regulators. My C half set is made by Seth Gallagher.
Any questions don't hesitate to email me and I will get back to you ASAP.
