I don’t think I’ve mentioned this before, but I play the accordion. So does this guy:

…but that’s just an interesting coincidence, not the point of this post. My trad band, Geansaรญ Dearg, recorded a few songs in our last practice, and we’ve now got them up on a myspace! They’re a bit rough, but I think they’ve come out fairly ok! Check them out and let me know what you think!

    Loved it! The recordings lack a bit of oomph, but great stuff all the same.

    If you ever end up over the water in Liverpool for a gig, I’d roll up. ๐Ÿ˜€

    The more significant question is: are there any Terry Cavanaghs who *don’t* play the accordion?

    Cheers ๐Ÿ™‚ We recorded the songs on a cheap little MP3 recorder, so to be honest I’m actually surprised they’re audible at all, heh.

    I certainly hope not – that would be awesome ๐Ÿ˜€

    Hey, this is really great! I didn’t know you played in a group. ๐Ÿ™‚ “Cliffs of Moher” and “Sally Gardens” are my favorites of those four songs on the myspace. Sounds excellent for being recorded on a little mp3 recorder too, I would never have guessed if you hadn’t mentioned it.

    Added you, by the way!

    Haha, glad you liked it – didn’t know if it would be your sorta thing ๐Ÿ™‚

    My flatmate’s the one who put up the myspace, but I told him about you and I think he’s added you back!

    Wait, you have Therapy? added as a friend on myspace? I fucking love Therapy?! ๐Ÿ˜€ I didn’t know anybody had heard of them outside of Ireland and the UK!

    Hey, my musical taste is varied… I have lots of favorite genres! ๐Ÿ˜›

    Oh yeah, I added Therapy? awhile back– I think I heard of them through you, actually. That or another friend of mine who lives in the UK… can’t remember, actually! They’re excellent though, at any rate ๐Ÿ™‚
