I’m so lucky to have friends like these!!
Short notice session, Rick Davis’s house, Chattanooga, TN, August 12, 2008:
Casey Phillips on tenor banjo, Ken Doyle on flute, and Rick Davis rockin’ the bodhran.
Tunes tunes tunes!! This weekend I was paid a visit by the fabulous Helen Gubbins, a very dear close friend of mine from my Cork days. She primarily plays accordion, but whipped out a fantastic tune on my piano, which promptly became my favorite tune…
…Or at least it was my favorite tune for an hour or two before I got to the session at the Tremont Tavern and heard this new tune by Casey Phillips. Casey is a rock solid player and all-around terrific guy, and he knows approximately 3,424,502 tunes– and as if that’s not enough, he’s writing more! This one in particular completely won me over. I’ll be working on this one for the next few days.
