These guys videos are definitely an inspiration for me to watch. My favorite set by them at the moment!
My long unnoticed absence
I’m starting to Miss the days when I would eagerly post some of my poor excuses for music up on here.
I’ve not really had time, mainly cause I’ve been trying to finish my degree, that & I’ve been trying to learn the violin. It’s certainly the hardest instrument I’ve come across, but after a year and a half, I’m starting to make progress.
In the near future I’m hoping to buy a snowball mic (if anyone has any better recommendations please let me know) and start uploading some actual vocals & guitar/fiddle.
currently trying to learn the second tune in this set. It’s such a lovely wee jig, really uplifting (especially the 4th part).
Celtic Connection 2013
So ends another Celtic Connections, definitely the best yet!
Granted, I never actually went to any concerts but I did manage to make it to the sessions at the weekends.
It’s something to say you’re in the same room as some of your musical inspirations but actually getting to sit down and jam with them till the wee hours of the morning was such a great experience.
Mike Mcgoldrick, Phil Cunningham Alister Frazer and even Julie fowlis and Paul Brady popped in. Definitely a little startstruck
Sometimes I wish I was one of those people who don’t care about music passed listening to it on the bus home. I wish I wasn’t one of those people who wants their life to be about music.
At least that’s how I feel at times, it sure would make life alot easier. The whole “what are you doing with your life?” question would get a more welcomed response if I wanted to become some big bucks IT developer.
It’s sort of terrifying, knowing that what you love doing isn’t something that will keep you financially safe for the rest of your life.
I know, life would be boring if it was easy, but in the back of my mind I’m always wondering, what if 10, 15 years down the line I want to settle down, live the whole family life? Is that going to be impossible for me just cause of my love for music?
