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.
Luxury of luxuries! I stepped out my front door the other evening and saw that my across-the-street neighbors, Rick and Brandy, had their front door open. So of course I peeked in to see what they were up to, and their dining room was full of Irish musicians! And they were all working at learning a tune together. And it just so happens that I bought a fiddle this week, so I ran back over to my place, grabbed my fiddle, and ran back to learn the tune with them. This is the tune they were learning, a hornpipe called “The Home Rulers” (which I assume is a handy tool used by homeschoolers). After that we did a slip jig, and I went home a happy bug. Yay for awesome neighbors!!
