Irish music night!

Djeli took me over the Severn to The Boat pub for their Irish music night – every Thursday all sorts of people turn up with their instruments and just play folk music. Deeply, deeply awesome. Last night we had 3 fiddles, 2 banjos, 2 mandolins, a guitar, 2 sets of uilleann pipes, 4 assorted accordions, ranging from a tiny squeezebox through to a full piano accordion, a bodhran and even a pair of bones (played like the spoons). We were given a lesson in bone-playing, and Djeli picked it up quite well but obviously I’m too much of a control freak.
